Substance Abuse Treatment

Substance abuse treatment, per drugabuse.gov, is intended to help addicted individuals stop compulsive drug & alcohol seeking and use. Substance abuse treatment can occur in a variety of settings, take many different forms, and last for different lengths of time. Because drug addiction is typically a chronic disorder characterized by occasional relapses, a short-term, one-time treatment is usually not sufficient. For many, substance abuse treatment is a long-term process that involves multiple interventions and regular monitoring.

There are a variety of evidence-based approaches to treating substance abuse. Substance abuse treatment can include behavioral therapy (such as cognitive-behavioral therapy or contingency management), medications, or their combination. The specific type of treatment or combination of treatments will vary depending on the patient’s individual needs and, often, on the types of drugs they use. 

Treatment medications, such as methadone, buprenorphine, and naltrexone are available for individuals addicted to opioids, while nicotine preparations and the medications varenicline and bupropion are available for individuals addicted to tobacco. Disulfiram, acamprosate, and naltrexone are medications available for treating alcohol dependence, which commonly co-occurs with other drug addictions, including addiction to prescription medications.

What is Substance Abuse?

Per WebMD, substance abuse is when you take drugs that are not legal. It’s also when you use alcohol, prescription medicine, and other legal substances too much or in the wrong way. Substance abuse differs from addiction. Many people with substance abuse problems are able to quit or can change their unhealthy behavior. Addiction, on the other hand, is a disease. It means you can’t stop using even when your condition causes you harm.

Substance Abuse Addiction Quick Facts

  • According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), 19.7 million American adults (aged 12 and older) battled a substance use disorder in 2017.
  • Almost 74% of adults suffering from a substance use disorder in 2017 struggled with an alcohol use disorder.
  • About 38% of adults in 2017 battled an illicit drug use disorder.
  • That same year, 1 out of every 8 adults struggled with both alcohol and drug use disorders simultaneously.
  • In 2017, 8.5 million American adults suffered from both a mental health disorder and a substance use disorder, or co-occurring disorders.
  • Drug abuse and addiction cost American society more than $740 billion annually in lost workplace productivity, healthcare expenses, and crime-related costs.

Causes of Addiction

  • Genetics, including the impact of one’s environment on gene expression, account for about 40% to 60% of a person’s risk of addiction.
  • Environmental factors that may increase a person’s risk of addiction include a chaotic home environment and abuse, parent’s drug use and attitude toward drugs, peer influences, community attitudes toward drugs, and poor academic achievement.
  • Teenagers and people with mental health disorders are more at risk for drug use and addiction than other populations.

Demographic Specifics Regarding Addiction

  • Per AmericanAddictionCenters.org:

    Adolescents (aged 12-17):

    In 2017, approximately 4% of the American adolescent population age 12 to 17 suffered from a substance use disorder; this equals 992,000 teens or 1 in 25 people in this age group.

    About 443,000 adolescents age 12 to 17 had an alcohol use disorder in 2017, or 1.8% of adolescents.

    An estimated 741,000 adolescents suffered from an illicit drug use disorder in 2017, or about 3% of this population.

    Young adults aged 18-25:

    About 5.1 million young adults age 18 to 25 battled a substance use disorder in 2017, which equates to 14.8% of this population and about 1 in 7 people.

    About 3.4 million young adults age 18 to 25 had an alcohol use disorder in 2017, or about 10% of young adults.

    About 2.5 million young adults had an illicit drug use disorder in 2017, or about 7.3% of this population.

    Heroin use among young adults between 18 and 25 years old doubled in the past decade.

    Over age 26:

    Approximately 13.6 million adults age 26 or older struggled with a substance use disorder in 2017, or 6.4% of this age group.

    About 10.6 million adults age 26 and older had an alcohol use disorder in 2017, or about 5% of this age group.

    Elderly individuals:

    More than 1 million elderly adults age 65 or older had a substance use disorder in 2017.

    That same year, about 978,000 of people in this age group had an alcohol use disorder and about 93,000 had an illicit drug use disorder.

    Two-thirds of the senior citizens over the age of 65 who struggle with alcohol use disorders developed the disorder before age 65.

    Between 21% and 66% of elderly individuals battling a substance use disorder also suffer from a co-occurring mental health disorder.

    Men vs. women:

    In 2017, about 9.4% of men and 5.2% of women age 12 and older had a substance use disorder.

    Men may be more likely to abuse illicit drugs than women, but women may be just as prone to addiction as men when they do abuse them.

    Ethnicity/race:

    American Indians and Alaska Natives age 12 and older had the highest rate of substance abuse and dependence in 2017, at 12.8%.

    Whites had a 7.7% rate of substance abuse in 2017.

    About 6.8% percent of African Americans struggled with substance use disorders, while the percentage of Hispanics or Latinos who suffered from substance use disorders was 6.6%.

    Approximately 4.6% percent of Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders suffered from substance use disorders.

    Asian Americans had the lowest rate of substance use disorders at 3.8%.

    Criminal justice/employment status:

    Almost twice as many people who are unemployed struggle with addiction than those who are full-time workers, CNN Money reports around 17% of the unemployed and 9% of the employed population struggle with a substance use disorder.

    Of the 2.3 million people in American prisons and jails, more than 65% meet the criteria for addiction.

    Around 75% of individuals in a state prison or local jail who suffer from a mental illness also struggle with substance abuse, and the opposite is also true.

I would recommend this place to anyone that is dealing with opiod addiction. Dr. Rodgers the doctor I see there Is very... kind and will listen to you and provide guidance on what she can do for you . She is one of the best in this buisness as far as I am concerned she doesn't rush you out of her office just to get to the next patient she actually listens and truly cares about the issues you are dealing with. Aldo the place is very clean. The people that run the office part are the nicest people and are very kind to you as well. I hope this reaches that one person who is struggling with addiction that is trying to find help. Give this place a chance. You can thank me later.read more

Everybody who works there is so caring and understanding and so inviting, they make it a very easy process. Tana... Holloway is my doctor for the last 2 years and she is awesome. She's been the first doctor that has tried to understood my faults and help me fulfill my specific needs. She is a remarkable doctor. Anyone that is going through addiction and thinking about starting their road to sobriety should make an appointment now.because it will change your life for the better and start you on a path to your new life.read more

Dr. Russell is by far the most understanding doctor I have ever had the pleasure of being a patient of my whole adult... life. I have now been going to see him for going on 6 years, and I absolutely enjoy him and his staff. He truly cares and understands his patients, and from what I have experienced, he always tries to do anything that he can do to help if he is capable. I drive about an hour from my house to his office just to see him instead of going to any other doctor that may be closer. I know he has a huge impact on a ton of his patients lives and is making a change.Thank you for all you do and I appreciate you!read more

My son is patient of Dr. Terri "Carol" Rodgers, NP I must say how impressed I am of how he was treated by her and... staff. The simple fact that she clearly did her job yesterday as I was able to overhear him on the phone with her in some "Distress" you could say. He has gone through so much in his life and I couldn't stand to see him continue to suffer! So encouraged to call Dr. Carol's office and just tell them what's going and make an appointment. She went above the call of duty in my book and it just proves how serious she is about the overall care and well being of her patients. My son happens to have severe anxiety and suffers form panic attacks along Bi-Polar 1 We have been dealing with his whole life. In and out of doctors offices until you find that right one that is a perfect fit and I must Carol is for sure is the right doctor for him. So the appointment was made and she was kind enough to call just enough tablets to get through until the appointment next week. Now that is what I call a HIGH LEVEL OF CARE! Not only was my son a CMA for years, I actually worked for NASA at the Space Center in the Medical Department working close with the best Physicians in the world and I just want to say Thank you Carol, You not helped my son out, by doing so you helped me out and again THANK YOU SO MUCH! He is doing SO much better alreadyread more

Doc was very Professional, Polite & Kind. Providing a very high level of care here with concern! Just stick to the... program! I go today for my 1st follow up and I'm assuming it won't be a problem going up Rx Subutex 8mg 3 times a day. Currently I am on 2 tabs a day. I've always taken 3 a day in the past that I showed her proof of with the bottle. She said that we can go up and adjust the dosage during next follow up. Simple titration. The staff are all Awesome! Understanding and Respectful. Thank you all.read more
