The earlier you seek treatment for a drug and alcohol addiction, the lower your chance of complications.
The hallmark symptoms of drug and alcohol addictions include:

They then tailor a psychotherapy treatment best suited to your needs.
The standard treatments for drug and alcohol addictions include psychotherapy, lifestyle changes, and medications.
