What Is Chemical Dependency?

Chemical dependency is a clinical disorder that defines the illness of those with an addiction. Chemical dependency could be with alcohol or drugs, but the symptoms are not the same as addiction. They may not experience the cravings or need for a substance. Those with chemical dependency may deal with additional issues besides their dependency.

What Drugs Are Common with Chemical Dependency?

There are a variety of drugs connected to chemical dependency. The most common are:

  • Alcohol
  • Nicotine
  • Cocaine
  • Marijuana
  • Benzodiazepines
  • Inhalants
  • Opiates
  • Amphetamines
  • Anabolic steroids
  • Methamphetamine
  • Hallucinogens

What Is Chemical Dependency Treatment?

Before healing can happen, an individual has to first acknowledge that there is a problem before they can address it. If they don’t see the problem, they can’t fix the problem. Once acceptance is reached, an assessment is performed to determine the individual’s drug of choice and their history of substance abuse. This information is used to design a personalized treatment plan that best fits the needs of the individual. If there are underlying mental health issues, the assessment will note them so they can be addressed as well.
