Addiction treatment centers provide a monitored environment where you will get the medical attention you need, as well as the emotional support to overcome drug or alcohol abuse.
Substance Abuse + Addiction Treatment
Substance abuse refers to the intensive and inappropriate use of psychoactive substances. These include illegal drugs, alcohol, and even the excessive use of prescription drugs. Overuse of these substances leads to severe physical or psychological dependence.
Substance abuse is treatable and the duration of treatment and most successful sobriety can require weeks or months of professional care at Behavioral Health Resources of Maine in Portland.
Opioid + Opiate Addiction Treatment
