Have Questions? We Have Answers
  • How can I tell if I’m addicted to alcohol or drugs?

    Because increased tolerance to alcohol and drugs can develop gradually, it can be hard to tell when you have become addicted to a substance. Often, people believe they can control their alcohol or drug use even after they have become dependent on a substance. In fact, it may be clear to others that someone is abusing or addicted to alcohol or drugs before the person realizes it him/herself.

    While there is no single factor that definitively proves someone is addicted to alcohol or drugs, there are certain signs that indicate alcohol and/or drug dependency. These include:

    • Feeling a compulsive need to drink alcohol or use drugs
    • Continuing to consume alcohol or take drugs despite negative consequences in your life
    • Trying and failing to stop drinking or taking drugs
    • Frequently drinking more or taking more drugs than you planned on
    • Experiencing withdrawal symptoms, including intense cravings, when not drinking or using drugs
  • How long does drug addiction treatment take?

    The amount of time you will need to attend drug addiction treatment will depend on numerous factors, including the severity of your substance use disorder, whether or not you have a co-occurring mental or behavioral health condition, the amount of support you receive at home, your risk of relapse, and much more. Generally speaking, recovery is a lifelong process. At Miracles in Action, we provide ongoing support and comprehensive aftercare services to our patients. No matter where you are in your recovery, you can count on our team to be there for you every step of the way.

  • What is outpatient treatment?

    Outpatient treatment simply means that you do not live full-time at the rehab facility where you receive addiction treatment services. Instead, you visit the facility several times a week for several hours at a time to attend therapy, take part in support group meetings, and receive other treatments specifically tailored to you and your recovery. You then return home to sleep and manage outside responsibilities, such as going to school, working, or taking care of your child.

  • If I go to rehab, will I have to live at the rehab facility?

    Whether or not you will need to live full-time at a rehab facility will depend on the specific details of your situation. For those struggling with very severe substance use disorders, inpatient (or residential) treatment may be recommended. Others, however, may benefit from an outpatient (or non-residential) rehab program.
