About Drug Addiction
  • The condition affects individuals and families
    across the United States and the world. Drug
    addiction changes brain function and affects all
    areas of life. Relationships with family members
    and friends are damaged, friendships are affected
    and there is also danger when an addicted person
    drives, putting themselves and others in danger
    of death or injury. Drug addiction may cause loss
    of employment and absences from school with a
    subsequent drop in grades. Family members worry
    constantly about the safety and physical
    condition of their loved one and are always in
    fear of what might happen next.
  • Drug and alcohol addiction causes both physical
    and mental health changes in those who abuse the
    substances. Many drug abusers fall into
    depression or suffer from anxiety or panic
    disorders. The sooner treatment begins, the
    better the outcome can be. When you call the
    Arizona Drug Addiction Helpline you will be
    connected with a treatment program that will help
    you overcome your addiction and get your life
    back on track.

Recognizing Drug Addiction
  • People suffering from addiction no longer have
    control over their use of drugs or alcohol, once
    addiction has taken hold, the substances must be
    used daily or several times daily just so the
    person can continue to function.
  • People experiment with drugs or alcohol for many
    different reasons. Many use the substances for
    the first time due to curiosity, peer pressure,
    to have a good time or in an effort to
    mistakenly improve performance. Depression,
    anxiety and other disorders are also triggers for
    substance abuse.

    avoid drugs and prevent relapse. Subjects for
    discussion will include a persons job, any legal
    difficulties and most importantly, relationships
    with family and friends.

Principles Of Effective Treatment

    treated concurrently with addiction in order to
    achieve a successful outcome. Some patients do
    quite well utilizing outpatient treatment only,
    while others benefit from a residential program
    which allows them to focus fully on treatment
    while away from any temptation.

  • Medication, if prescribed
  • Continual assessment of status
  • Underlying conditions treated
