Substance Abuse Group
Substance use/abuse, also called substance use disorder, is a disease that affects a person’s brain and behavior and leads to an inability to control the use of a legal or illegal drug or medication. Substances such as alcohol, marijuana and nicotine also are considered drugs.
What is the difference between substance abuse and substance use disorder? Substance use disorder is now the medical term for addiction. Previously, abuse was a mild form of addiction, and dependence was a moderate or severe form of addiction.
What causes substance abuse? A person’s genes, the action of the drug, peer pressure, emotional distress, anxiety, depression, and environmental stress can all be factors. Many who develop a substance use problem have depression, attention deficit disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, or another mental problem.
What is substance induced disorder? Substance-induced mental disorders are mental changes produced by substance use or withdrawal that resemble independent mental disorders such as depression, psychosis, or anxiety. For a mental disorder to be considered substance induced, the substance involved must be known to be capable of causing the disorder.
What does substance use mean?
The term “substance use” refers to the use of drugs or alcohol, and includes substances such as cigarettes, illegal drugs, prescription drugs, inhalants, and solvents. A substance use problem occurs when using alcohol or other drugs causes harm to you or to others. Substance use problems can lead to addiction.

What is Domestic Violence?
Domestic violence is a systematic pattern of violent, controlling, coercive behaviors that stem from an unequal power relationship. Domestic abuse can occur in intimate heterosexual, gay, and lesbian relationships. It is used to frighten, threaten, injure, and ultimately control the thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors of its victims.
How is Domestic abuse different from battering?
Battering is perhaps the most pervasive form of domestic abuse. It is physical and violent, affecting people of all ages, races, educational levels, religious denominations and in all socioeconomic groups. 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men have experienced some form of physical violence by an intimate partner.
What causes domestic abuse?
It is a learned behavior that is caused by the abuser’s own history and problems. It is never “provoked”. Neither alcohol nor drugs are the cause of physical or emotional abuse, although they may exacerbate the problem. Abusers use violence to exert control, relieve tension and take revenge on the world.
How are children affected?
Whether or not a child is actually struck, he or she will be seriously affected by domestic abuse. Many children who witness the battering of a parent demonstrate significant behavioral and emotional problems, including psychosomatic disorders, stuttering, anxiety and fears, sleep disruption, excessive crying, and school problems. In addition, boys who witness their mother’s abuse by her partner are more inclined to inflict severe violence as adults. Data also suggests that girls who witness maternal abuse may tolerate abuse as adults more than girls who do not.
