When you are struggling with drug addiction or drug dependency, you need a stable, collaborative support system that can help you feel grounded and secure as you work towards recovery and sobriety. For this reason, we have created Anchor, our inpatient treatment facility. We understand the importance of trauma-informed treatment programs that are responsive to the crisis management, behavioral health, and recovery needs of our clients. We utilize this knowledge as the backbone of our facility’s programs and to provide compassionate, mental health-based therapies.
Our Southern Maryland drug rehabilitation professionals use a comprehensive approach to treat addiction and the underlying traumas that contribute to each patient’s condition. We are committed to contributing to the well-being of the communities we serve through integrated behavioral health care, crisis intervention, and recovery support.
Signs & Symptoms of Drug Dependency
Drug addiction, or substance use disorder, is a disease that begins in the brain but effects the entire body system, beginning with experimental use of a drug in a social situation or as the result of an accident or injury that requires pain medicine or another mind-altering prescription. Depending on the substance, an addiction can be immediate or can advance with time. Regardless of how a dependency starts, it is imperative to seek help as addiction can ravage the lives of addicts, loved ones, their children, and families.
Addiction symptoms vary depending on the specific drug, but there are behaviors that indicate addiction across the board, including:
- Increasing dosage over time to achieve the same effect, aka tolerance
- Feelings of anxiety if you do not have access to the drug
- Needing to maintain a supply for “later” or “just in case”
- Spending money on a drug, despite other financial responsibilities
- Using the drug despite it causing relationship, occupational, or health problems
- Failing attempts to quit using the drug
- Justifying use to friends and family
- Stealing, selling your body, or doing other illegal activities to get the drug
- Using alternative forms of the drug to reach a similar effect if it is not available
If you feel like you cannot function without a drug, or you notice that a loved one is exhibiting the signs listed the above, it is time to get help. Drug dependency not only devastates relationships and lives but also destroys your body. Your life is worth saving; let us help you discover a second chance.
Our programs are aimed at treating all forms of drug addiction, including:
