When you seek help for substance abuse, there’s an overabundance of information that can leave you feeling lost. Unfamiliar terms, confusing acronyms and lots of online opinions make your task even more difficult. BlueCrest knows this and provides every potential client with clear and concise information that is easy to understand. We always provide someone to talk to, even well before and well beyond normal business hours. If you or your loved one is in need of treatment and you’re looking for answers, please call us.
We publish monthly articles that include personal stories, research articles, current news pertaining to drug abuse and treatment and updates on new laws and legislation that is pertinent to the field of addictions and mental health. Please read our latest articles below.
Is Alcoholism a Mental Illness?
In 1980, the third edition of the Manual, DSM-3, identified alcoholism as a subset of a mental health disorder. The current edition, DSM-5, classifies alcoholism, now referred to as Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD) or Substance Use Disorder (SUD), as a mental disorder presenting both physical and mental symptoms.
Why Do I Crave Drugs?
Certain factors may increase the likelihood of developing an addiction, including past trauma, especially if it occurred in childhood, genetics, family history, depression or another mental health problem, social and cultural factors, and other influences. Once addiction takes hold, cravings make it difficult to break the cycle.
How to Stop Binge Drinking
Binge drinking can be deadly in itself and may lead to an Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD). Take steps to cut down or abstain from alcohol before it seriously impacts your life. Here are some tips to stop binge drinking.
We know that recovery isn’t easy, and putting together sober or clean time takes work. So, we dedicate the last Wednesday family night of each month to celebrate. One look at the crowd huddled into our main room lets you know we have something special going on at BlueCrest. Some celebrants are in the later stages of our program when they reach 90 days or 6 months. Former clients that have successfully completed routinely come back to celebrate a year or more of sobriety. With peers and loved ones in attendance, the feeling that we are a family here at BlueCrest could not be any clearer.
