How do I know if I, or a friend or loved one, may have a substance abuse problem?

Try to answer the questions below as honestly as possible. If the person is willing, you can include him or her in the discussion. If some or all the following items apply, you or your loved one may have a substance use problem. In the most severe cases, it is an addiction. Any person who uses a drug can develop an addiction.

•Taking drugs in larger amounts or for longer than they meant to.
•Trying to cut down or stop but can’t.
•Spending a lot of time getting, using, or recuperating from the effects of drugs.
•Having cravings or strong urges to use drugs.
•Work, home, or school responsibilities suffer because of drug use.
•Continue to use the drug even when it causes problems in relationships.
•Continuing use despite physical or mental conditions that are aggravated by drug use.
•Taking more drugs to get the desired effect.
•Experience withdrawal symptoms when not taking the drug.

Brief screenings are the quickest way to determine if you or someone you care about should connect with a behavioral health professional.

Medical Withdrawal (Detoxification) alone is not treatment and is associated with a high relapse rate and significantly increases an individual’s risk for overdose and death if opiate use is resumed following detox.  Medical Withdrawal, the process by which the body clears itself of drugs, is designed to manage the potentially dangerous physical effects of stopping drug use.  Medically assisted withdrawal (detoxification) is only the first stage of addiction treatment and by itself does little to produce the lasting behavior changes necessary for recovery.  Medical Withdrawal should be followed by referral to alcohol or opiate use disorder treatment, including medication for opiate use disorders to reduce the risk of overdose and overdose death following medical withdrawal services

The Ashtabula County Mental Health and Recovery Services Board contracts with two agencies that provide inpatient Detoxification Services for indigent (uninsured) persons:

Naloxone is a drug used to temporarily reverse an opiate overdose until emergency medical personnel can arrive. Those who proactively seek out a Naloxone kit will first receive education on recognizing the signs and symptoms of an overdose, distinguishing between different types of overdose, performing rescue breathing, calling emergency medical services, and administering Naloxone. Most Naloxone kits include two doses of the drug. All major pharmacies in Ashtabula County can make this drug available to families and persons with addiction without a prescription. Within Ashtabula County, Naloxone kits are carried by ambulance crews and some other first responders, such as law enforcement. Local emergency rooms also maintain a supply of the drug.

You can purchase Naloxone to use on someone you care about with your personal insurance or Medicaid. You also receive a free Naloxone kit by contacting the Ashtabula County Health Department at 440-576-6010, Community Counseling Center by calling (440) 855-2265, or Signature Health at (440) 992-8552 Extension 20112. Free naloxone is also available through the mail by visiting  Events to distribute free Naloxone kits occur around the county on a regular basis.

LOSS TEAM (Local Outreach to Suicide Survivors)

The LOSS Team is a group of volunteers contacted by the County Coroner’s Office that respond to the scene of a suicide or other traumatic deaths to provide information about local resources and be an installation of hope for the newly bereaved. The primary goal of the team is to let survivors know what resources exist to support them following the death of their loved one. The LOSS Team is NOT a therapy or clinical service. The Team is there to listen to you, support you, and provide valuable information about what you may encounter next. For more information contact the Ashtabula County Mental Health and Recovery Services Board at 440-992-3121.
