Substance Use Disorders is not just a fancy word for addiction.
The term “substance use disorders” represents the full spectrum of a progressive, relapsing disease.
People can have symptoms at a mild, moderate or severe level.
Most people end up needing treatment and care at the higher level of the disorder because they put it off. They don’t think that they have a problem, or they think that they can manage it on their own.
At Ten16, we know that the earlier a budding problem is faced, the better the outcomes for the person, their loved ones, and their community.
