Substance abuse is one of the top reasons individuals present to the emergency room and nearly 50,000 individuals in 2015 died from overdose secondary to substance abuse. Unfortunately drug and alcohol abuse are continuing to rise in the United States and according to studies, 23.5 million Americans are addicted to alcohol and drugs and only 11percent of those people seek treatment for their addictions. The number one reason individuals are not seeking treatment for the substance abuse is due to costs and access to treatment. Overdose, drug abuse and alcohol abuse affect men more than women. Alcohol, heroin, marijuana, cocaine, benzodiazepines and other opioids are the top substances of abuse in the United States. Depending on the specific substance, medications can be used to help prevent cravings and ease withdrawal effects. Additionally, psychotherapy is needed in order to teach individuals coping skills and uncover the underlying reason for their addiction. Often times, individuals will have a co-occurring disorder associated with their alcohol or drug abuse. Co-occurring disorders are at least two different mental health disorder that exist at the same time and usually one disorder such as anxiety can lead to another disorder such as alcohol abuse or vice versa. Anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, self-harm behavior, and bipolar disorder are all common mental health disorders that often co-occur with a substance abuse disorder.

Depending on the substance of abuse and the severity of the behavior, treatment can range from inpatient hospitalization to drug and alcohol classes such as Alcoholics Anonymous. Usually the first step in treating an individual with a drug or alcohol addiction is detoxification, which works to eliminate the addictive substance from the body. Medications can help alleviate side effects from certain drugs such as opioids, alcohol and benzodiazepines. Residential treatment, partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient care and outpatient counseling are the different levels of treatment for substance abuse.
