Substance abuse is a growing problem. Dr. Sullivan Bryant of Axcel Treatment and Recovery Clinic, with locations in Denison, San Antonio, Greenville, and Dallas, TX, realized the severity of drug abuse and wanted to help reduce the toll it's taking on people's lives and their communities. That's why our doctor is assisting patients in getting back their lives with substance abuse treatment.
Dangers of Substance Abuse
Substance abuse can affect your health and happiness. It can impact your financial well-being and even interfere with your keeping a job. It'll come between you and your family and other loved ones.
Why Get Substance Abuse Treatment
Drugs chemically and physically alter the brain when a person becomes addicted. This is why it's so hard to stop doing a drug once a person reaches this point. Even if they direly want to quit, their minds won't let them.
Although some people do quit drugs on their own, it's a difficult journey, especially when someone is contending with withdrawal symptoms and stress in general. This often leads to a vicious cycle of continued use. It also can make someone very vulnerable to relapsing once they quit.
When you opt for substance abuse treatment in Denison, Greenville, San Antonio, or Dallas, TX, you acquire tools to help you when you have the feeling to use again. You have professionals to lean on whenever you don't feel strong enough to continue.
Often, during your substance abuse treatment, our practitioner uses a multifaceted approach to address your problem from different angles. For instance, you'll learn how to avoid triggers and how to respond if you're in a position where others are offering you a substance. You'll learn how to keep yourself mentally busy to avoid thinking about the substance.
Your treatment may consist of medication to help ease your withdrawal symptoms.
And in some cases, a practitioner can help you with the use of medication. These medications help to prevent withdrawal symptoms by binding to the same receptors that heroin or other opiates would. As a result, you won't crave the drug, and you won't suffer from withdrawal symptoms without it. Unlike other opiates, such as heroin, there isn't a euphoric effect when taking Suboxone or methadone.
