How Can I Deal With the Temptation To Use Drugs if I Am Recovering From a Drug Problem?

If you are in recovery, you know all too well that drugs cause many more problems than they solve, and keeping yourself clean can be a day-to-day or minute-to-minute fight. But it is a fight you can win. It is important to remember that just because you have the urge to use drugs, it doesn’t mean you need to, and that urges do pass. If you or someone you know are having a hard time staying off drugs, it is very important to get help. Remember—treatment works!

Treatment information can be found online or by calling 1-800-662-HELP, where you can find private and confidential help 24/7.
