It's never to late, Break the Addiction

Substance Abuse Treatment

There is always a thin line between addiction and abuse.

Substance abuse can spin out of control and ruin relationships, jobs, friendships, and even a person’s potential. As humans, we are naturally curious. We often wonder and often ask ourselves, “What if?” Substance abuse begins with curiosity, an urge to experiment with other members of the same group. On the other hand, addiction can begin as a reaction and dependence on painkillers.

At Sprout Health California, we have the experience and programs for both the addicted person and their families, or friends.

The Difference Between Substance Abuse and Addiction

There is always a thin line between addiction and abuse. Which starts first? Substance abuse can best be described as abusing the original intent of a medication or chemical. Its use goes far beyond what it was intended for. In this scenario, the abuse of the chemical does not always lead to addiction. Invariably, it is maladaptive thoughts that lead to substance abuse, so it will be treated in much the same way that addiction is treated. Thoughts lead to behavior. Change the thoughts, and you can change a person’s behavior over time.

The Signs of Substance Abuse

Substance AbuseThe signs will surface overtime because they are rooted in behavior. There are many signs that can be attributed, but generally, four signs will stand out.

#1. The individual has little energy. Where they may have been energetic, their energy level has dropped off the chart. They simply do not have the get-up-and-go that they once had.

#2. Whether at school or on the job, their attendance levels will suddenly drop. They are not as motivated to get out of the bed in the morning. Jobs are at risk and parents will start getting notifications from school.

#3. You can also tell when substance abuse is at play because individuals, all of a sudden, become secretive. They starting isolating themselves from others, and their social contacts become less and less.

#4. Watch their spending habits. They will increase their spending on a particular substance without a valid reason. If you inquire about it, expect them to become highly defensive.

This is when it is time to seek help for that person. There is a strong likelihood they cannot seek it alone. At Sprout Health California, we have the experience and programs for both the addicted person and their families, or friends. The addiction affects everyone involved. This is why it is necessary to offer support to others who can help the addicted person get their life back to normal. Discovering the problems and offering the cure is what substance abuse rehab is all about.
