Conditions and Issues Treated

A detailed list of the primary issues commonly treated.

  • Alcoholism

    Alcoholism is one of the most common addictions in Washington. 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 Veterans Affairs Medical Center Substance Abuse Recovery Program. The alcoholism treatment at Veterans Affairs Medical Center Substance Abuse Recovery Program in Washington, Washington is designed to give you the support you need to quit drinking once and for all.

  • 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. Veterans Affairs Medical Center Substance Abuse Recovery Program in Washington 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 Washington.

  • Dual Diagnosis

    Several treatment options are available in Washington, Washington to treat individuals with dual diagnoses. In addiction treatment, a dual diagnosis, also known as co-occurring disorder or comorbidity, is when someone suffers from two or more disorders at the same time, such as a drug use disorder and depressive disorder. Integrated treatment for a mental illness and substance use disorder is generally most effective for someone struggling with a dual-diagnosis disorder compared to separate treatments for each condition. Treatment of dual-diagnosis disorders at Veterans Affairs Medical Center Substance Abuse Recovery Program in Washington, Washington includes knowledgeable addiction treatment professionals providing effective services that treat the whole person and supports overall health and recovery.

  • 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, Veterans Affairs Medical Center Substance Abuse Recovery Program in Washington, Washington, 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 Veterans Affairs Medical Center Substance Abuse Recovery Program can offer the stability and guidance needed to facilitate meaningful progress and recovery.

  • Opioid Addiction

    Opioids/opiates are among the most addictive substances worldwide. Prescribed for various medical needs, opioids encompass a large class of prescription drugs such as morphine, oxycodone, and hydrocodone, and illegal substances such as heroin and opium. People who misuse opioids can develop an opioid addiction very quickly. Opioid addiction, also known as an opioid use disorder, is a condition in which someone compulsively seeks the drug. In Washington, Washington, there are many treatment options to choose from for an opioid/opiate addiction. The most effective form of opioid addiction treatment is drug detox, followed by inpatient drug rehab. Veterans Affairs Medical Center Substance Abuse Recovery Program in Washington, Washington offers opioid addiction treatment tailored to your unique needs and situation.

  • 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 Washington, Washington 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. Veterans Affairs Medical Center Substance Abuse Recovery Program in Washington, Washington works to address substance abuse and help people to build fulfilling lives in recovery.
