Substance abuse is a common problem across the United States. In fact, it doesn’t take long for someone who abuses drugs to develop an addiction. At Woodlands Recovery Centers, we offer substance abuse treatment for both men and women. We strive to get people the help that they need to walk the path of sobriety.

What Is Substance Abuse?

Substance abuse happens when people abuse drugs. Keep in mind that they can do that in a number of ways. The easiest is to take too much of a prescribed drug. However, they can also abuse drugs when they take prescriptions that aren’t theirs to take or by simply using illegal street drugs.

For example, let’s say that someone gets a prescription from a doctor. If someone else takes that drug, that person took the drug in an unintended way. No matter the method, people who abuse drugs run the risk of developing addiction.

Substance Abuse Treatment

At Woodlands Recovery Centers, we offer substance abuse treatment. Like addiction treatment, substance abuse programs start with some kind of detox. Unlike other rehab centers, however, we’ll also be offering detox coming soon. We think that it’s important for people to get detox and rehab in the same location.

After detox, the next step is to get to the root cause of the substance abuse. Why do people feel like they need to abuse drugs? Do they do it to fit in with others? Do they do it to numb other issues in their lives?

People often abuse substances to cover up the symptoms of other mental disorders. Instead of seeking expert help, they self-medicate. The problem is that self-medicating doesn’t fix the core problem. Instead, it provides temporary symptom relief.

The therapy that people get during rehab can uncover underlying issues. Some of the most common underlying mental conditions include depression, borderline personality disorder and anxiety. Woodlands Recovery Centers help you overcome these issues through dual diagnosis treatment.

In some cases, underlying problems occur as the result of trauma. A good option for treatment in such cases is trauma therapy. At Woodlands Recovery Centers, we offer trauma therapy to all of our clients. We’ll help them reprocess painful memories and traumatic events.
