Substance Abuse & Addiction

One of the hardest things for any of us to admit is that we’re struggling with substance abuse. Admitting you have a problem managing cravings for a particular substance or substances may feel shameful or embarrassing.

The message we get from others is often that substance abuse is a character flaw instead of a genetic tendency and/or a means of coping.  Using strategies that have proven to be effective, therapy can help you change the way you respond to your addictive impulses (and even reduce them) so that you may live a healthier, more fulfilling life.
