Substance Abuse Treatment

What is substance abuse?

In the simplest of definitions, substance abuse is when you use a drug outside of its intended purpose, or in amounts that could be dangerous, which can lead to a full-blown mental and physical addiction. The most common substances that people misuse are:

  • Alcohol
  • Opioids
  • Cocaine
  • Marijuana
  • Methamphetamine
  • Benzodiazepines

The fact is that any substance that takes over your brain’s wiring and chemistry is one where abuse and addiction can wreak havoc.

What are the signs of substance abuse?

There are many ways that people abuse substances, but the most common signs that there’s a problem include:

  • Intense and uncontrollable cravings
  • The inability to quit
  • Withdrawal symptoms
  • Needing to take more to get the same effect

While these symptoms are mental and physical, the social aspects of substance abuse are just as serious. If you’re beginning to hide your use or you’re canceling out on dates in order to use, these are very large warning signs that there’s a problem. As well, if you’re engaging in risky behavior or you’re in peril of losing relationships or jobs because of your substance use, these, too, are signs of abuse.

What is the treatment for substance abuse?

Dr. Gallus and his team treat substance abuse in several ways:

IV therapy

IV therapy, or intravenous therapy, is a safer, faster, and more effective way to detox because it goes directly into your bloodstream, and the doctor can make adjustments where necessary. The doctor can also immediately address any discomfort you may be feeling to ease your detox process.

24-hour care

The luxury detox program at Gallus Detox Centers is an inpatient treatment, allowing the Gallus team to provide you with around-the-clock access to medical care. At best, detoxing on your own is highly uncomfortable, but, at worst, it’s downright dangerous. With 24/7 medical staff availability, you can detox safely and comfortably.

Comfort, connectivity, and confidentiality

The facilities at Gallus Detox Centers are designed to meet your every need and provide a homelike environment. The staff also understands your need to stay connected, which is why Wi-Fi is available during your stay. Lastly, the staff appreciates the need for discretion and anonymity and honors this.
