About Addiction

Addiction often refers to the continued drug use despite negative consequences.  Usually there are compulsions that contribute to this continued use.  Addiction symptoms can include: 

  • Continuing to use a drug despite having persistent problems with other important people

  • Continuing to use a drug despite knowing that it may create or complicate other physical or psychological problems

  • Continuing to use a drug in physically hazardous situations

  • Normally important activities are abandoned or replaced due to drug use.

  • Inability to fully function or complete important obligations as they relate to work, school, or at home.

  • Failed attempts to stop drug use

While it’s true that dependency and addiction often go hand-in-hand, proper assessment and diagnostic impressions are crucial to determine the severity of one’s condition.  CAT uses a multi-disciplinary team to assess and create an individualized treatment plan.
