Treatment for people and families seeking to find sobriety from drugs and alcohol.
ARE YOU OR IS SOMEONE YOU KNOW AFFECTED BY A DEPENDENCY ON ALCOHOL OR DRUGS?
Stress, peer pressure, relationship difficulties, anxiety and depression can influence someone to use substances. Often people do so believing it will help them deal better with things or in an attempt not to feel or think about their problems for a while. The truth is, problems are exacerbated by the use of alcohol and drugs and remain until the issues are addressed sober.
The specific cause of alcohol abuse and/or chemical dependency is unknown. Yet, we know genetic factors play a role as does environment influences. We now understand that “just stopping” is much more difficult than once believed. Dependency is a disease. Dependency negatively affects a person's ability to function day to day. Once the addictive process begins, it builds on itself and its going to affect the user and everyone around them.
You may already understand this and are seeking relief for yourself or a loved one. I can help. For more than 20 years I have worked with individuals and families experiencing the effects of alcohol and chemical dependency. Trust me, until the issue is addressed honestly and with vigor, lives and families will be in peril.
Alcohol and chemical dependency counseling works best when coordinated between the abuser, family members and loved ones, an experienced therapist and a medical specialist. I work closely with a physician specializing in addictionology, the study of addiction.
