Opioid Use Disorder

about addiction and substance abuse

Substance Use & Mental Health Disorders
Are a Disease

Addiction is a primary, chronic disease of the brain. This disease can affect an individual biologically, psychologically, socially and spiritually. It may be evidenced by an individual pursuing reward and/or relief by using alcohol or other substances and other behaviors.

Combat Heroin and Prescription Drug Use Disorders

Addiction can happen to anyone, any family and at any time. It can be intimidating and overwhelming to identify a substance use disorder (SUD) and even harder to admit when there is a problem. Learning to recognize the signs of addiction is critical. Educate and empower yourself with tools and resources about addiction so that you can help someone in need.

You are not alone on this journey. There are a variety of people, organizations and various levels of care available, often nearby, to assist you. The NYS Combat Addiction webpages provide information, help and support resources.
