Alcohol e-Check Up
Take this free and confidential online survey to understand your drinking habits.
Drug and alcohol abuse typically starts off as recreational, in which the individual drinks and/or uses in a social setting. The disease is progressive, which means that as time passes, he or she will exhibit a higher tolerance, frequently engage in the behavior and experience intense cravings and withdrawal symptoms.
Many signs and symptoms of substance abuse depend on the drug being abused, but some signs are more common among many drugs. Below is a list of common signs of substance abuse.
Specialized services are available if you are troubled either by your own or someone else’s abuse of alcohol or drugs.
Group counseling programs are also offered, including a court-approved program for those who have received a DUI citation.
If you are worried or wonder about your alcohol and/or drug consumption, take this brief screening tool designed to help you better understand your alcohol and drug habits.
Internet addiction is different from substance abuse in that it does not involve the use of an intoxicating drug. Some Internet users may develop an emotional attachment to on-line friends and activities they have created. Internet users may also enjoy aspects of the Internet which allows them to meet and socialize with others through the use of chat rooms, social networking websites, or “virtual communities.”
