new location 300BENTON, Ky. (6/18/13) – Substance abuse can easily be defined as a pattern of harmful use of any substance for mood-altering purposes. However, the broad spectrum of substances that are used in today’s society is not that simple.
 
Substance Abuse can be connected to the misuse of alcohol, illegal drugs, tobacco, prescription drugs and other substances that can alter how one’s mind and body works. It is possible for some people to abuse substances without becoming emotionally, physically or psychologically dependent. However, depending on some substances happens quickly and can be very difficult to reverse. Substance abusers come from different backgrounds such as; rich, poor, educated, and uneducated. Regardless of one’s background or personal situation, substance abuse affects the abuser and the people who love them.
