Conditions and Issues Treated

A detailed list of the primary issues commonly treated.

  • Drug Addiction

    Drug addiction is a chronic disease characterized by a physical and psychological dependency on drugs. Drug addiction occurs when extensive drug use causes changes in a person’s brain chemistry, resulting in uncontrollable cravings to use regardless of the adverse effects. The only way to overcome drug addiction or other addiction disorders is to receive addiction treatment. VA Sepulveda Ambulatory Care Center Addictive Behaviors Clinic in North Hills, California offers many treatment options for those struggling with drug addiction. If you or someone you love is struggling with drug addiction, get help as soon as possible. Prolonged drug use can result in a destructive addiction cycle where you must continue using drugs to avoid distressing withdrawal symptoms. Regardless of your situation, help is available in North Hills, California.

  • Mental Health

    Mental health disorders can lead to severe and potentially life-threatening issues if left untreated. Several factors can disrupt a person’s mental health, including intrinsic factors — such as the development of depression or anxiety — as well as external factors like experiencing traumatic events. Sometimes, counseling alone is not enough to manage a mental health condition. In these cases, VA Sepulveda Ambulatory Care Center Addictive Behaviors Clinic in North Hills, California, offers mental health treatment as a more comprehensive level of support in treating mental health disorders in combination with substance use disorders. Mental health treatment at VA Sepulveda Ambulatory Care Center Addictive Behaviors Clinic can offer the stability and guidance needed to facilitate meaningful progress and recovery.

  • Substance Abuse

    Substance abuse refers to the act of misusing drugs or alcohol. Substance abuse problems can refer to illicit drugs — such as heroin, cocaine, or methamphetamine — or legal drugs, such as alcohol or prescription medications. Substances frequently abused in North Hills, California include alcohol, marijuana, prescription drugs, methamphetamine, cocaine, opiates/opioids, hallucinogens, and more. The main difference between substance abuse and drug addiction is that individuals with substance abuse problems can quit or change their unhealthy habits. In contrast, addiction is a disease in which someone can’t just stop using when their addiction causes them harm. People engaged in substance abuse put themselves at risk for developing a substance use disorder, a severe mental health condition that can make it difficult for people to stop using drugs or alcohol on their own. VA Sepulveda Ambulatory Care Center Addictive Behaviors Clinic in North Hills, California works to address substance abuse and help people to build fulfilling lives in recovery.

  • Alcoholism

    Alcoholism is one of the most common addictions in California. Alcohol addiction (often referred to as alcoholism or alcohol use disorder) is characterized by a deep craving for alcohol and the inability to quit drinking regardless of any adverse effects. Alcohol use disorder ensues when the chemical changes from long-term alcohol use drive the brain to acclimate to normal functions creating a dependency. Many people who struggle with alcoholism find it challenging to quit without the help of a treatment facility such as VA Sepulveda Ambulatory Care Center Addictive Behaviors Clinic. The alcoholism treatment at VA Sepulveda Ambulatory Care Center Addictive Behaviors Clinic in North Hills, California is designed to give you the support you need to quit drinking once and for all.
