Many of these questionnaires, tests, and quizzes are useful in identifying particular issues with which you or a loved one may be dealing. These are not a replacement for a thorough evaluation as offered through your EAP. If you feel you may have a problem, it is in your best interest to seek help before that problem begins to interfere with your life and career. If it has already progressed to the level of life impairment, please call ACCESS now.
Substance Misuse and Addiction
Everyone involved in the life of someone who is suffering from addiction is impacted by their loved one’s substance abuse. Untreated, addiction can destroy the nuclear family, finances, physical and psychological wellbeing, as well as erode an individual’s and family’s self esteem, self sufficiency, and self worth.
The person and family attached to a substance use disorder, are oftentimes shrouded in a veil of guilt and shame, which makes reaching out for help a difficult task. If you or a loved one is suffering with a drug or alcohol problem or addiction, please take this vital step toward recovery—you and your family are worth it. Our hotline calls and referrals are kept strictly confidential. Please do not delay; call us at (800) 248-1688.
You are NOT Alone
- One in four adults is directly touched by addiction through a close family member or friend while one in four children live in a home where at least one parent has a substance use disorder.
Children whose parents abuse drugs and misuse alcohol are three times more likely to be physically, sexually, or emotionally abused and four times more likely to be neglected than their peers.
Alcohol continues to be the most abused drug in America with 17.6 million people, or one in every 12 adults, suffering from alcohol abuse or dependence.
- Pennsylvania is leading the nation in drug overdose deaths, with a 43% increase in deaths occurring between 2016 and 2017
