Alcohol and Drug Dependence Counseling
People respond to stress in a number of ways, and drugs or alcohol are an all too common way of dealing with it. Many people use these substances to escape, but over time they actually leave you feeling even more trapped. Alcohol or drug dependence can jeopardize your relationships, your career, your mental health, and even your life. And it is incredibly difficult to reverse dependence without the help of a professional who can provide insight about the nature of alcohol or drug dependence and connect you with the right tools for recovery.
