Learn How to Help Yourself or a Loved One
Knowledge is empowering. This section of our website is designed to provide you with a better understanding of addiction, drug and alcohol use, treatment, and recovery.
Those struggling with an addiction need to understand the serious nature of substance use disorder. In the same way, those with loved ones who have a substance use issue need to get informed on how addiction works and why getting treatment matters.
Knowing what drug and alcohol use does to the body is vital in tackling the issue head-on. We also provide links to groups such as Al-Anon and Narcotics Anonymous.
Whether it is knowledge about a specific drug or information about a co-occurring disorder, please use this extensive resource as a step in the journey to help yourself or a loved one sustain a healthier lifestyle.
Addiction Treatment is What We Do
At Origins, our patients’ wellbeing is of the highest priority. For this reason, in addition to the wealth of material listed here, we have also created a comprehensive guide to medications for those in recovery. This guide lists those drugs which should be avoided while in substance use disorder recovery and drugs that should only be taken with a doctor’s supervision.
Keep in mind that this list is only for reference and is no substitute for the advice of your own doctor.
Substance use disorders come with no shortage of challenges, but at Origins, we are here to see you through by means of a wide array of treatment modalities.
