What are substance abuse disorders?

Substance abuse disorders are complex conditions that can take a severe toll on your life. They involve a problematic pattern of using drugs or alcohol that leads to distress and impairment. These disorders encompass a range of substances, from alcohol and prescription medications to illegal drugs, and they can be highly detrimental to your physical and mental health.

What causes substance abuse disorders?

The causes of substance abuse disorders often involve a combination of factors, such as: 


If you have a family history of addiction, you may be at a higher risk. 

Environmental factors

A history of trauma, chronic stress, or exposure to substance use at a young age can lead to substance abuse.

Psychological factors

Low self-esteem, depression, and anxiety may cause you to turn to substances for relief. 

In addition, the accessibility and social acceptance of certain substances can influence the development of these disorders.

How are substance abuse disorders treated?

Clarity Health Solutions provides effective treatment options for substance abuse disorders. One common approach is therapy, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), which helps you identify and change negative thought patterns and behaviors related to substance use. 

Support groups can also provide a sense of community and understanding, making you feel less alone in your struggle. In some cases, your provider may prescribe medication to help manage withdrawal symptoms or reduce cravings. 

Hypnotherapy, offered by expert Glexi Garcia, MBA, INHC, CHT, is also an option.

At Clarity Health Solutions, treatment plans are individualized, addressing your unique needs and circumstances.

How do people remain free of substance abuse disorders?

Remaining free of substance abuse disorders is an ongoing journey that requires dedication and support. It's vital to develop healthy coping mechanisms for stress and emotional challenges. 

In addition to treatment, you can take steps toward relapse prevention by surrounding yourself with a supportive network of friends and family who understand your goals. Avoid environments and social circles that may trigger your substance use, and be sure to engage in regular exercise, practice mindfulness, and focus on your overall health to help you stay on track.
