Alcohol and Drug Use Disorder

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5) replaces old terminology to describe someone experiencing problems due to drug use such as "addiction", "abuse" or "dependence" with the term "Substance Use Disorder". Substance Use Disorder happens when the ongoing alcohol and/or drug use causes clinically and functionally significant impairment. The impairment is determined to be mild, moderate, or severe depending on how many "diagnostic criteria" are met which include but are not limited to health problems, disability, tolerance, withdrawal symptoms, and failure to meet major responsibilities at work, school, or home due to use of the substance, etc. The specific Substance Use Disorders treated at Aspire are as follows:
