Addicted woman sharing her rehabilitation success

Addiction to Drugs Includes People From All Walks of Life.

While the stereotype may reflect some sort of depraved criminal, the reality is that opioid users are most frequently everyday people.

Students, mothers, fathers, neighbors, and even doctors and lawyers are represented among substance-abusing persons.

Sadly, too many people allow the stigma associated with opiate use disorder to keep them from getting the help they need-help that may save their lives.

Here in the Onalaska, Wisconsin area, there is a high incidence of substance use disorder. AMS of Onalaska, LLC is here to help. If you know someone who is struggling with a substance disorder, make a difference in their life by getting in touch with us. We can help.

Anyone can become addicted. Drugs don’t care where you live or what you do. Taken in sufficient quantity, you will become addicted.

Opiates are addicting, no matter how they might be used. While many people think of opiate users as “IV-needle users,” most are persons who have never considered using a needle. Substance use can grow from smoking, sniffing, and swallowing narcotic drugs.

Less than 10-20% of those needing help ever get it. Far too many people experience a downward spiral until their lives are destroyed. Sadly, death from overdose, suicide, or other medical complications ends the life of an opiate-using person.
