    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.

    Opioid + Opiate Addiction Treatment

    Opioid addiction treatment facilities like Damascus House support people struggling with opioid dependency, which covers illegal and prescription opioids.
