    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 can require weeks or months of professional care at Livermore VAMC in Livermore.

    Opioid + Opiate Addiction

    Opioid addiction treatment facilities like Livermore VAMC support people struggling with opioid dependency, which covers illegal and prescription opioids. People often abuse prescription opioids to get high instead of adhering to a medical provider’s directions. Addiction forces people to crave for opioids impulsively without factoring in the dangers these drugs bring to them.

    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.
