Jon C Is Your Substance Use Getting Out-of-Hand?
If a person is starting to contemplate that their substance use is getting out of hand, talking to school counselors teachers, trusted adults is a great way to go. Talking to your parents, letting a trusted family member or friend know that you’re struggling in that you’re realizing that your methods aren’t working, they can point you into the right direction.
If a person is struggling with substances, one of the best things to do is to get an assessment. Substance Use Disorder Assessment will determine the best course of action to help you to get back on your feet. Many withdrawal management facilities can assist people in getting a reprieve from substance use and facilitate getting that assessment done so that they can figure out what the next appropriate step is. Some people, depending on the severity of their substance use disorder, may need alcohol and drug information classes. Others may need outpatient services. Some may need inpatient services, and others may need long-term care.
There are multiple resources that a person can access, and the best way to go about accessing those resources is to talk to a trusted adult.
