Seeking Help For Myself

You may be suffering from alcohol and substance abuse if you’ve recently experienced any of the following symptoms:

  • Drinking more or longer than you originally planned
  • Tried to cut down or stop on your own but couldn’t
  • Getting sick after drinking or getting high
  • A constant craving to drink or use when sober
  • Drinking, drug use or sickness from use has begun to interfere with family, work, school or other social responsibilities
  • Given up other activities in order to drink or get high
  • Getting into situations when drinking or drug use that can cause harm to you or others, like driving, fighting or unsafe sex
  • Continued to drink or use drugs despite feelings of depression, anxiety or other health problems
  • Having to drink, use more or move on to more powerful substances than before to get the same effect
  • Withdrawal symptoms when sober like trouble sleeping, shakiness, irritability, anxiety, depression, restlessness, nausea, or sweating

You may be suffering from behavioral addiction such as gambling if you’ve recently experienced any of the following symptoms:

  • Gambling more or longer than you originally planned
  • Tried to cut down or stop on your own but couldn’t
  • Needing to be secretive about your behavior
  • A constant craving to indulge in the behavior despite the negative circumstances
  • The behavior has begun to interfere with family, work, school or other social responsibilities
  • Given up other activities in order to continue the habit
  • Continuing the habit even when you can’t financially afford to

Maybe you’ve tried to stop in creative ways, like limiting the number of drinks, never smoking alone, no drinking in the morning, gambling only during a certain time of day, using only at home, never getting high at work or drinking only at parties. Maybe you began moderately, but now lose control over your consumption after one drink, or your habit has progressed from the weekends to daily. No matter what your experience, we’re here to help.
