Addiction vs Substance Abuse

Our Arizona Addiction Specialists Can Help You Understand the Difference

Recent changes in mental health studies have made great strides in our understanding of addiction. Addiction treatments now more accurately reflect the reality of substance use disorders by viewing it as a spectrum and not one single diagnosis.

While some individuals may suffer with significant chemical and psychological addiction to certain substances or activities, others may not be addicted, but are nonetheless misusing. In both cases, the misuse of alcohol and drugs is doing harm to individuals, families, and communities. Understanding the difference between addiction and substance abuse is critical to providing the most effective treatment

Achieving Success By Treating Individuals' Needs

Diagnosing and treating each person's substance use disorder individually has important real-world implications. Unlike some programs that view all clients as "addicts" and apply a one-size-fits-all approach and therapy, we tailor a personalized care plan that is responsive to the severity and complexity of each client's condition.

Not every patient will require the same treatment. Depending on the needs of the individual, our patients may undergo:

  • EDMR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing)
  • Relapse prevention
  • Substance abuse counseling
  • Medication
  • Nutritional therapy
  • Psychotherapy

Educational and vocational consulting are just as important in helping people find and use their passions, gifts and motivations to begin living independently.

At Decision Point Center, we understand that each substance use disorder is just as individual and complex as the unique people affected by these issues. Here, you will find an experienced professional staff that will assess, inform, and treat on a truly individualized basis.
