COVID – 19 & Substance Use Disorders

Chapa-De Indian Health Auburn Grass Valley | Medical Clinic

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed so many parts of our daily lives. But here at Chapa-De, we encourage you not to let it disrupt your health care goals. That includes plans for treating addictions and substance use disorders.

What are Substance Use Disorders?

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) defines substance use disorders as: The recurrent use of alcohol and/or drugs causing clinically significant impairment, including health problems, disability, and failure to meet major responsibilities at work, school, or home.

What is COVID-19’s Impact?

COVID-19 has caused stress for many people in our area and around the world. Stress can arise from multiple sources. High stress can lead to an increase in the use of alcohol and other substances. Are you or someone you care about struggling with addiction or substance use? We encourage you to seek help. Chapa-De is here for you!
