What We Treat at Chateau


Stimulants are drugs that make people more alert and energetic. They work by speeding up communication between the brain and body. Stimulants can be found in both illicit drugs and common products like caffeine.


Using stimulants can cause intense symptoms or overstimulation. Some of the dangerous symptoms are headaches, anxiety, seizures, aggression, panic attacks and paranoia. Using stimulants regularly for an extended time can cause long-term health effects.

  • Adderall

    • Doctors prescribe Adderall to people who have attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder. The medicine helps people focus better, but it can be addictive if someone takes it without a prescription or takes it too often. Adderall is a combination of dextroamphetamine and amphetamine.

  • Cocaine

    • Cocaine interacts with the chemicals in a person’s brain and provides a flood of energy.  It is one of the most abused drugs in the US. Cocaine is dangerous due to unregulated production and log term health impacts

  • Crack Cocaine

    • Crack cocaine is another form of cocaine. The substance is more potent and dangerous than regular cocaine. Crack cocaine is more addictive and popular because it is cheaper than regular cocaine, but the health risks are still very severe.

  • Methamphetamine

    • The stimulant methamphetamine or meth is an addictive substance that impacts the central nervous system. It’s known to cause severe dental, mental and physical health problems because of its addictive properties and symptoms.

Depressants are a type of drug that makes people feel relaxed. They do this by slowing down the communication between the body and the brain. People usually take depressants to relieve stress or anxiety.

Depressants can have a negative impact on a person's coordination, concentration and judgment. When consumed in large quantities, they can slow down the body's vital processes and lead to vomiting, sleepiness, unconsciousness and even death.

Regularly using depressants can lead to addiction because of their effects on the brain and other parts of the body. 

  • Alcohol

    • Alcohol falls into the depressant category because of the effects it has on the body. It slows down a person’s reaction abilities and shares symptoms with other depressant substances.

  • GHB

    • Gamma-hydroxybutyrate, commonly known as GHB, is a depressant that impacts the central nervous system. Mixing GHB with alcohol makes the effects more intense and dangerous. It’s highly addictive because the substance can often cause memory loss of the person ever using the drug.


Opioids and Benzodiazepines

There are two types of opioids: prescription drugs and illicit substances. Prescription drugs are used for pain management, while illicit substances are used recreationally.

Opioids block the pain receptors in the brain. This stops the body from feeling pain. Prescription opioids are common after surgeries or serious injuries. However, opioid use and overdose is a growing problem in the United States. This is because opioids can be addictive and dangerous.

Bnzodiazepines, or benzos, are a group of prescription drugs. This category of substances treats conditions like seizures, anxiety, insomnia, alcohol withdrawal, muscle spasms and other health conditions. Benzos can become addictive when people use them against a doctor’s prescription or obtain them illicitly. The substance is also addictive when a person takes the prescription as prescribed and finds it difficult after their prescription ends.

  • Klonopin

    • The brand name of the drug clonazepam is Klonopin®. People may develop a dependency on this opioid while using their prescribed dosage from a doctor or by illicitly obtaining the substance. 

  • Valium®

    • Valium® is a prescription drug taken for anxiety or muscle spasms, but it’s also commonly misused and potentially addictive. People may misuse this substance by taking it to help deal with stress or sleeping problems. 

  • Xanax®

    • Xanax® is a common prescription medication. It has a strong sedative effect and is common in treating conditions like anxiety and panic disorders. Xanax® has many risks like seizures, memory problems, dizziness, nausea and shortness of breath. 

Anxiety pills


Cannabinoids describe all of the substances that derive from the cannabis Sativa plant. Cannabis sativa plants have various types of cannabinoids, but the two common ones are THC and CBD.

People use substances that derive from the plant and synthetic substances to replicate the effects of the natural cannabinoids. These substances have addictive properties and side effects that can harm a person with regular use.

  • Marijuana
    • This substance alters the function of your brain and limits your sense and problem-solving abilities. People may experience health effects from using marijuana like vomiting, difficulty breathing, delusions, paranoia or psychosis.

  • Synthetic Marijuana

    • Also known as “spice” or “K2.” This drug is similar to marijuana but is made in a lab.

Dissociative substances are psychedelic drugs that alter a person’s sensory abilities and cause them to feel a detachment from their environment. These substances can cause the brain to create auditory or visual distortions and produce other dangerous effects, like memory loss, body tremors, numbness, anxiety and altered motor function. 

Dissociatives can be dangerous when taken at any dosage. People must seek treatment for addictions to this type of substance to prevent further negative impacts on their overall health.

  • Ketamine

    • Ketamine is known for its hallucinogenic and dissociative properties. Ketamine has addictive properties and other effects that can impact a person’s body and brain.  Ketamine addiction involves health risks like amnesia, seizure, and high blood pressure.

  • PCP (Angel Dust)

    • This substance can cause hallucinations and other feelings that remove people from their environment. The substance is known for causing people to exhibit psychosis and other aggressive behaviors. Since this substance alters the function of the brain, it can quickly become addictive.

SUD General Info

What is Substance Use Disorder (SUD)?


The DSM 5 recognizes substance-related disorders resulting from the use of 10 separate classes of drugs: alcohol; caffeine; cannabis; hallucinogens (phencyclidine or similarly acting arylcyclohexylamines, and other hallucinogens, such as LSD); inhalants; opioids; sedatives, hypnotics, or anxiolytics; stimulants (including amphetamine-type substances, cocaine, and other stimulants); tobacco; and other or unknown substances.


Therefore, while some major groupings of psychoactive substances are specifically identified, the use of other or unknown substances can also form the basis of a substance-related or addictive disorder.

Substance use disorders

DSM 5 Criteria

  1. Taking the substance in larger amounts or for longer than you're meant to.

  2. Wanting to cut down or stop using the substance but not managing to.

  3. Spending a lot of time getting, using, or recovering from use of the substance.

  4. Cravings and urges to use the substance.

  5. Not managing to do what you should at work, home, or school because of substance use.

  6. Continuing to use, even when it causes problems in relationships.

  7. Giving up important social, occupational, or recreational activities because of substance use.

  8. Using substances again and again, even when it puts you in danger.

  9. Continuing to use, even when you know you have a physical or psychological problem that could have been caused or made worse by the substance.

  10. Needing more of the substance to get the effect you want (tolerance).

  11. Development of withdrawal symptoms, which can be relieved by taking more of the substance.
