Have you ever thought, “I’m not going to drink tonight” and find yourself drinking despite the promise you made to yourself? Have you ever tried to manage the number of drinks you have and after one, you don’t seem to care if you drink several more?
If you have asked yourself these questions, you may also be asking if you have a problem? Whether you are just contemplating you use, considering making changes, needing to talk to someone about options, or already changing your substance use behavior, you do not have to do this alone.
Addiction is a disease. One’s looses the ability to manage when or how much of a substance they use, and stopping seems impossible. Sadly, this disease often convinces its victim that he or she does not need help. It can also convinces the family that trying to help is futile. However, people before and after you find solutions. You can too.
I have worked with people struggling with substance abuse. As a drug and alcohol counselor, program director of detox and residential treatment facilities, and therapist, I have helped people to recover and find a way out.
I provide individual counseling, couples work, and support families who have loved ones experiencing addiction. Call for a free phone consultation to determine what might work for you and your loved ones.
