Substance-Related/Addictive Disorders

People pursue counseling and therapy for a variety of reasons at Morgan Health Centers,
our services cover a wide spectrum of issues and conditions,  from minor to complex, both recently developed and long-standing.

Substance-related disorders are those that involve the use and abuse of different substances such as cocaine, methamphetamine, opiates, and alcohol. These disorders may include substance-induced conditions that can result in many associated diagnoses including intoxication, withdrawal, the emergence of psychosis, anxiety, and delirium. 

Examples of substance-related disorders:

Alcohol Related Disorders – Alcohol Related Disorders involve the consumption of alcohol, the most widely used (and frequently overused) drug in the United States.

Cannabis Related Disorders – Cannabis Related Disorders include symptoms such as using more than originally intended, feeling unable to stop using the drug, and continuing to use despite adverse effects in one’s life.

Inhalant Use Disorders – Inhalant Use Disorders involve inhaling fumes from things such as paints or solvents. As with other substance-related disorders, people with this condition experience cravings for the substance and find it difficult to control or stop engaging in the behavior.

Stimulant Use Disorder – Stimulant Use Disorder involves the use of stimulants such as meth, amphetamines, and cocaine.

Tobacco Use Disorder – Tobacco Use Disorder is characterized by symptoms such as consuming more tobacco than intended, difficulty cutting back or quitting, cravings, and suffering adverse social consequences as a result of tobacco use.

Gambling Disorder – Gambling Disorder is also included under this classification. The American Psychiatric Association explains that “this reflects the increasing and consistent evidence that some behaviors, such as gambling, activate the brain reward system with effects similar to those of drugs of abuse and that gambling disorder symptoms resemble substance use disorders to a certain extent.”
