Unfortunately, addiction has become increasingly prevalent in American society. It is not uncommon to get trapped in a cycle of addiction (obtaining, using, and recuperating from the use of drugs and/or alcohol). For many struggling with substance abuse, it feels like there’s no way out. Addiction is a chronic condition, which means that it will continue to get worse without seeking professional treatment. Colorado Medication Assisted Recovery is a private addiction treatment center in Thornton, CO, that will help you overcome your addiction. With the addiction treatment programs we offer, we can help you recover no matter how complicated your circumstances are.

Who Needs an Addiction Treatment Program?

There are many warning signs that you need help from a professional recovery program. If you find yourself in a cycle of compulsively using a substance despite the negative consequences in your life, you may be struggling with addiction. There is hope, however, as addiction is widely understood to be a chronic disease and mental health condition.

The following are the DSM criteria for substance use disorder. If you feel as though you relate to any of these symptoms, you should reach out to a recovery center for help. The symptoms include:

  • When you use the substance, you use more or for longer than you intended to 
  • You want to cut down or end your use, but have been unable to do so
  • You’re spending a significant amount of your time getting, using, or recovering from using the drug
  • You get strong desires or cravings to use the drug
  • You have failed to fulfill responsibilities at home, work, or school due to using the drug
  • Your substance use causes or exacerbates your interpersonal or social problems
  • You’ve relinquished social, occupational, or recreational activities so that you have more time to use the substance
  • You use the substance in dangerous situations repeatedly
  • Though your substance use causes or worsens psychological or physical problems, you continue to use it
  • You have a tolerance to the drug, so you need more to get the same effect
  • You get withdrawal symptoms that only go away when you use the substance again
