Substance Use

Alcohol & Drug Treatments at WellBridge Fort Worth

Substance use conditions occur when the recurrent use of alcohol and/or drugs causes clinically and functionally significant impairment, such as health problems, disability, and failure to meet major responsibilities at work, school, or home. According to the DSM-5, a diagnosis of substance use disorder is based on evidence of impaired control, social impairment, risky use, and pharmacological criteria.

Substance use and addiction are powerful and difficult conditions to treat. Specialized treatment plans ensure that the care received in our treatment programs is customized to meet the individual needs of the patient, through each phase of recovery. Medically supervised detox is available to help individuals safely withdraw from the substance prior to restorative treatment.
