Drug Abuse Treatment New York City


Do I have an alcohol or drug problem?

This can be a perplexing question and one that is difficult to answer.  Yet left unanswered, drug and alcohol problems can lead to destruction in many areas of a person's life.  Substance use becomes a problem when alcohol and/or drug use: 

  • Interferes with performance on the job or at school;
  • Causes you to neglect obligations to your family;
  • Occurs in situations that can be dangerous to you or others;
  • Becomes the focus of problems in relationships;
  • Triggers the desire to drink or use even though you are trying to stop; or
  • Creates legal problems.

Physical withdrawal may also become evident--shaky hands, sweating, dizziness, heart palpitations, nausea, vomiting, scratching, headache, mild anxiety, runny nose, yawning, and abdominal pains occurring hours or days after your last drink or drug use, suggesting the need for medical attention.  Withdrawal from alcohol and tranquilizers can lead to seizures and the delirium tremors, life-threatening conditions. 

Misuse of substances can co-occur with mood changes like

  • Irritability
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
