Help for Substance Abuse

Taking the first step is often the hardest step to take; however, opening up about your battle can begin the journey of healing and recovery. Counseling provides a safe and supportive environment to begin facing and overcoming the destruction that addiction has caused in your life.


In therapy, you will learn how to recognize and challenge unhelpful beliefs and thinking patterns contributing to your addiction and self-doubt. You will also be taught how to confront, avoid, and redirect thoughts leading to poor decisions, thereby taking back control from your addiction. Since many relationships are damaged by addictive behaviors, you can also begin the process of healing those relationships. Your time in therapy will challenge you, but with that comes growth and change.
