Alcohol and Other Drug Services
Drug and alcohol addiction is a physical and psychological dependence on a substance despite harmful consequences. Addiction reveals itself in a variety of ways, including missing work or school, forgetting actions during social engagements and/or arguing with loved ones. Left untreated, drug and alcohol addiction can destroy relationships and impact a person’s professional and personal life for years.
