Addiction is the continued use of substances or repetitive behaviors despite negative consequences with family, friends, and careers. Addiction can include but is not limited to, alcohol abuse, gambling, pornography, drug abuse, and exercise abuse. Not only are the users affected, but family and friends are also affected. Getting help for addictions is not only for the user. People can become addicted for many different reasons and causes. More often than not, those who are addicted actually have a much deeper situation which has been masked by the substance or behavior.
You no longer have to mask your feelings or situations. Our counselors are professionally trained to help you first work through your addiction, then find the root cause and fix it. Family members also find help with counseling, learning more about their loved one’s addiction and using tool to help themselves and their loved one with the situation. You can begin your journey to a more peaceful and bright future.
