Mental health disorders are challenging all by themselves. When substance abuse enters the equation, as it so often does, it requires specialized treatment for the best results. Substance abuse can affect anyone. People of all ages, genders, races, and income levels can become addicted to alcohol or painkiller drugs. Even if it hasn’t affected you, you might have a friend or family member who struggles with abusing alcohol, drug addiction, or illegal substances.


Addiction is a mental health disorder. Like most mental health disorders, it can be effectively treated. At TruHealing Gaithersburg, every client in our care receives a personalized treatment plan. Our goal is to give you the tools you need to manage your mental illnesses, including addiction so you can attain long-term recovery.

Treating Co-Occurring Substance Abuse Disorders

man being comforted in substance abuse treatmentSince addiction is a disease, those suffering from it should seek out professional help. However, it’s not always obvious if you or a loved one is struggling with substance abuse such as opiate or opioid addiction. Since some addictive substances, like alcohol and prescription drugs, are legal, it can be hard to tell what use is over the line. There are a few indicators to look out for to understand whether or not your use of substances is a problem. These include:


  • Damage to relationships with family and friends due to alcohol addiction.
  • Inability to fulfill responsibilities at work or home
  • Cravings for heroin when you are not using
  • Increased tolerance (needing to use more or more often to feel the same effects)
  • Bingeing, where you drink an excessive amount in a small period
  • You’ve experienced negative physical effects from substance abuse but continue to use
  • Repeated failed attempts at quitting or decreasing your use
  • Withdrawal symptoms when you attempt to quit, such as headaches, insomnia, and anxiety


If you experience any of these symptoms, it might be time for you to seek out help. The first step in any substance abuse treatment program is acknowledging that you need help, and at TruHealing Gaithersburg, we’re ready to get you on the path to recovery.
