People abuse substances for varied and complicated reasons, and society pays for it as the addiction affects work, families, hospitals and prisons.

Defining substance addiction

Abused substances produces a form of intoxication which alters perception, attention, judgment, and/or physical control.

Most substances bring on withdrawal, which can range from anxiety to seizures, hallucinations and blackouts. On the other side of the spectrum, overdosing can lead to death.

Over time, substance addiction can lead to a phenomenon known as tolerance, where a larger amount of the substance is required to attain intoxication.

At Chabad Lifeline, we are here for anyone affected by substance addiction, offering one on one services as well as group therapy for both the addict and those affected by their addiction.
