Has a past solution to a problem of depression, anxiety, boredom and other issues turned into a problem? Have you had enough of having too much? We treat alcohol abuse, prescription drug abuse, and other drugs of abuse in a private, confidential setting. Substance abuse problems are marked not just by the quantity and frequency of consumption but mostly by controllability and consequences. In other words, if you drink or use drugs just a few times per year you’re clearly not addicted or physically dependent. But if you notice that when you use you have a hard time stopping and/or you get into trouble such as getting arrested for DUI or getting into a marital argument then you have a problem. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) defines substance use disorders as those in which the recurrent use of alcohol and/or drugs causes clinically significant impairment, including health problems, disability, and failure to meet major responsibilities at work, school, or home.
It takes strength to seek help and admitting that there’s a problem is the first step towards health. If you or a loved one struggle with these issues we can help. Counseling addresses the stigma, shame, and vulnerabilities associated with substance abuse. Your therapist will make every effort to assist you in understanding and changing your habit loops so you can regain control of your life.
