Finding the Right Treatment for Substance Use Disorders
If health, interpersonal, and financial consequences are not enough to discourage a person from using drugs and alcohol, they are chemically dependent. Addiction is complicated; withdrawal symptoms can be severe and resemble other medical conditions, leading to more prescriptions. Like any progressive disease, addiction gets worse without treatment. For a person battling substance addiction, the desire to be sober–no matter its strength–is not enough. When people don’t have the network, structure, or stability in place to help them abstain from using, relapse is inevitable. Our treatment center is more than another Boston drug rehab. We offer the very best outpatient programs for people battling the following types of substance addiction:

Substance abuse disorders cause isolation, depression, low self-esteem, aggression, and intense feelings of hopelessness. The health, emotional, financial, and relationship turmoil brought on by substance use disorder can make recovery feel unattainable. No matter what stage of addiction you find yourself in, recovery is always an option. Attending treatment for addiction is inconvenient, but the rewards are immeasurable.
What About Relapse?
Once a person realizes that a substance is causing harm in their life, the next step is usually an attempt to stop using or to cut back. Being dependent on psychoactive drugs changes the survival-centered regions of the human brain, making people feel that their very survival depends on using the drug. These feelings get more intense as a result of client-specific triggers. The following events and emotions have been known to cause relapse:
- Feelings of failure
- Internal conflict
- Interpersonal conflicts
- Being around the wrong people
If you stop using a drug for a certain length of time but return to using after being triggered by an event or emotion, this is a relapse. When a person relapses, the following harmful behaviors can cause them to return to their full-on regular drug or alcohol use:
- Pretending it didn’t happen
- Lying to family and friends
- Hiding drugs or alcohol
- Getting lost in self-hatred
- Blaming someone else
- Believing withdrawal symptoms are caused by another illness
- Wanting to get unnecessary surgeries or medical procedures
