Substance Abuse

Substance abuse is the harmful or hazardous use of psychoactive substances, including alcohol and illicit drugs. When a person persists in using substances despite harmful consequences to their health, wellbeing, and responsibilities, it is considered substance abuse. Abusing drugs or alcohol can start as recreational use but escalate over time into a dependency or addiction.

It's also important to recognize that substance abuse disorders affect people from all backgrounds and age groups, which means that the treatment approach also needs to be different.

Personalized Pathways to Lasting Recovery from Substance Abuse

At Holistic Teresa, I believe in fostering individual growth and empowerment on the journey toward lasting recovery from substance abuse. Everyone’s journey is unique, and I offer tailored, targeted plans to meet your specific needs. My comprehensive approach covers several key steps, such as:

  • Detox Support - This initial phase aims to help your body safely withdraw from drugs or alcohol, allowing you to enter treatment free of toxins and with a clearer mind. During this phase it is essential to focus on nutrition to support the repair of damaged body systems and the elimination organs as the body cleans and detoxifies.

  • Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) - I work collaboratively with medical professionals to incorporate MAT, when appropriate, to ease withdrawal symptoms and manage cravings during detox. While medication can play a vital role in managing addiction, it's most effective when combined with a comprehensive treatment program.

    My holistic approach addresses the underlying causes of addiction and equips individuals with the necessary skills to navigate recovery and achieve long-term sobriety. Think of medication as one piece of the puzzle, working alongside therapy, support groups, and lifestyle changes to create a sustainable path toward wellness.

  • Personalized Treatment Programs - Following detox, I offer a customized program designed to meet you where you are and address your unique needs, circumstances, and stage in recovery. The foundation of health will be in your personalized nutrition and physical activity program as we heal from the inside out. We also address your specific environmental and emotional triggers, situational awareness, how to handle social engagements and live a life you can be proud of.

  • The importance of Holistic Health Focus – As mentioned earlier, I integrate evidence-based and experiential modalities within each program, promoting a holistic approach that addresses addiction and your overall physical and mental wellbeing. This includes fostering healthy relationships, building coping mechanisms, and developing sustainable life skills for long-term success.

Realistic, Supportive Substance Abuse Treatment

Throughout your journey, I prioritize collaboration, and we work together to establish realistic goals and create a plan in which you feel empowered to participate.

I offer a safe and supportive environment where you can feel heard and understood without judgment. I aim to equip you with the tools and skills necessary to maintain long-term recovery and achieve overall wellbeing.

Signs That You Suffer from Substance Abuse

I firmly believe that early intervention improves recovery timeframes, which means you, need to recognize the signs of substance abuse, which can include these:

  • Spending more time and money acquiring and using the substance
  • Withdrawing from loved ones, neglecting responsibilities, engaging in risky activities
  • Bloodshot eyes, fatigue, changes in appetite or sleep patterns
  • Increased irritability, anxiety, or depression
  • Needing to use more and more of the substance to experience the same effect
