Addiction and Substance Abuse
Addiction is defined by engaging in an activity (i.e. gambling, sex/porn) or consuming a substance (i.e. alcohol, cannabis, nicotine, etc…) that can be pleasant or enjoyable to the person but the continued use or activity becomes compulsive and begins to interfere with daily functioning in life including work, relationships, school, financial well being or health.
Often those who are struggling with addictive behaviors are secretive and try to minimize or hide the behaviors. Others may be so preoccupied with their addiction that they may not even realize it has become a problem.

- Alcohol Use
- Cannabis Use
- Opioid Use
- Sedative Use
