    Drug Rehabilitation at MHS - East County Center for Change

    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

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.
