Substance Abuse Group

More often than not, drug addictions start with the experimental use of a substance in social situations. And for some people, substance use becomes more frequent. As time passes, a person may feel the need to use more of a substance to get their desired high, and soon a person may need the substance to simply feel “good.”

When we see this happen to a loved one, we do everything we can to help. But sometimes, our unconditional love simply isn’t enough.

Signs and symptoms of recent use include:

  • The feeling of exhilaration and excess confidence
  • Increased alertness
  • Increased energy and restlessness
  • Behavior changes or aggression
  • Rapid or rambling speech
  • Dilated pupils
  • Delusions and hallucinations
  • Irritability or changes in mood

If you or someone you know comes to mind with any of the above symptoms and behaviors, it may be time to consider substance misuse/use treatment.

At Thrive Mental Health and Substance Abuse Recovery Support we will address the symptoms of addiction and the related areas of impaired functioning, and together we’ll structure the time and content of ongoing recovery.

We believe that there are many paths to successful recovery that will work with the goals and desires of you or your loved one, to accomplish life changes.  Contact us today to speak with a licensed professional.
