Caring for people who struggle with substance-use disorder
Addiction, also called substance-use disorder, is a complex medical problem. It’s a disease that causes changes in the brain over time.
Addiction is not simply a lack of willpower or an unwillingness to stop using a drug. Patients often need professional help in order to get better. Our addiction team provides specialized care for people who are struggling with these challenges.
We care for patients who use a variety of addictive substances, including:
- Alcohol addiction
- Opioid addiction
- Cocaine, methamphetamine (meth), and other stimulants
- Hallucinogens, including LSD and PCP
- Prescription medications
Many of our patients use more than one substance. Addiction involving the use of multiple substances is called polysubstance-use disorder. Teens and younger adults are especially at risk for polysubstance-use disorder. This may be because young people who begin using addictive substances early are more likely to experiment with more substances and spend time with those who do.
