About Substance Use Disorder

Substance Use Disorder (SUD) is a complicated disorder involving the uncontrollable use of substances despite the harmful effects on the persons’ life. Repeated drug use can cause brain functionality to change and the changes can be long-lasting. Research shows that brain images taken from a patient with a substance use disorder had changes in areas that control judgment, memory, learning, decision making, and behavioral control. While research is torn as to why people begin misusing substances in the first place, there are three reasons that stick out:

  • To feel good
  • To feel better
  • To do better
  • Curiosity or peer pressure

Whatever the reasons are, help is available.
