Substance Use and Addiction

Substance use can involve many drugs, such as alcohol, marijuana, nicotine, opioids, and more. It can start out as experimental use in a social situation, and for some people, it unfortunately develops into a habit and becomes their way of life. Addiction is a chronic disease, where a person may continue to use a substances despite the harm it may cause to themselves and others around them. Substance use and addiction can affect your brain and behavior.

The Jefferson County Department of Health is committed to educating the public about substance use and addiction. Through this webpage, we hope you learn more about the topic and our mission to reduce overdoses in our community.
