Substance Abuse and Addiction
You don’t need to wait until you develop a dependency on a mood-altering substance to seek help; any adverse consequence experienced as a result of your use can be reason enough to talk to someone about how to prevent this behavior from escalating. Similarly, you may have recently completed more intensive treatment for addiction and find yourself in need of an outpatient therapist to help you maintain sobriety.
Substance abuse does not happen in a vacuum and there is no one size-fits-all approach to the prevention and treatment of this disease. We will look at all the factors (people, places, things, and most importantly, YOU) to determine the approach that resonates with you and fits your style and personality.
