Substance Abuse + Addiction

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 at Behavioral Health Resources of Maine in Portland can be weeks or months of professional care.

Opioid + Opiate Addiction

Most opioid addiction treatment plans include detoxification and subsequent medications to ease the process. However, that’s only the beginning. Behavioral therapies and counseling are also necessary to resolve the root cause of addiction. This overall approach decreases the likelihood of falling off the wagon. In some instances, therapies can be done at home.
