Addiction Treatment

It can be difficult to face the realities of addiction, whether in your own life or that of a loved one. At Lifewell, help is here we can assist in getting your life back on track.

Substance use disorder can wreck havoc on both individuals and families. It can come in many forms, stemming from abuse of:

  • Depressants:

      • Alcohol: The most commonly used and addictive substance, affecting the central nervous system, leading to impaired judgment and coordination

      • Barbiturates: Prescription sedatives with high addiction potential, causing drowsiness, slurred speech, and respiratory depression

      • Benzodiazepines (Xanax, Valium): Commonly prescribed anti-anxiety medications that can be addictive with long-term use, causing drowsiness, memory impairment, and falls

      • Sleep aids (Ambien, Lunesta): Medications for insomnia with potential for dependence and withdrawal symptoms like anxiety and insomnia


      • Cocaine: Highly addictive stimulant affecting the brain’s reward system, causing hyperactivity, euphoria, and paranoia

      • Amphetamines (Adderall, Ritalin): Prescription stimulants used for ADHD and narcolepsy, with potential for dependence and abuse, leading to anxiety, psychosis, and cardiovascular issues

      • Methamphetamine: A highly addictive and destructive stimulant causing euphoria, psychosis, and organ damage


      • Heroin: Extremely addictive and potent opioid derived from morphine, causing intense euphoria but severe withdrawal symptoms and overdose risk

      • Prescription opioids (oxycodone, hydrocodone): Painkillers with high addiction potential, causing drowsiness, constipation, and respiratory depression

      • Fentanyl: A synthetic opioid 50-100 times more potent than morphine, often mixed with other drugs and responsible for a significant number of overdoses


      • LSD: Can alter perception and cause vivid hallucinations, potentially leading to anxiety and psychological distress

      • Psilocybin (Magic mushrooms): Psychedelic drug affecting serotonin levels, resulting in altered perception and potential for mystical experiences.

      • DMT (Dimethyltryptamine): A naturally occurring psychedelic found in some plants, known for its intense and short-lived hallucinations

    Cannabis (Marijuana):

      • While considered less addictive than other substances, long-term use can lead to dependence and withdrawal symptoms like anxiety, insomnia, and difficulty concentrating


    • Volatile substances like paint thinners, glue, and aerosols inhaled for their intoxicating effects, impacting the brain and nervous system, causing damage to organs and potential for sudden death

Remember, addiction is a complex issue, and seeking professional help is crucial for anyone struggling with substance use dependence.
