    Conditions and Issues Treated

    A detailed list of the primary issues commonly treated.

    Opiod Addiction, Substance Abuse

    Drug Rehabilitation

    Getting sober on your own is not only dangerous during the initial detox, it is also more likely to result in a relapse later on. 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

    Using both legal medications and illegal substances in order to maintain an addiction is substance abuse. If you are taking more of your prescription, or earlier than the prescribed time interval between doses than is directed you may be abusing that medication.

    Illegal substances can become addictive after a single use and lead rapidly to substance abuse. The professionals at South Central Alabama CMHC First Step are here to help.
