Counseling for addictions

Counseling for addictions

Treatment is often needed to address drug or alcohol addiction because, quite simply, it's incredibly difficult to successfully quit on your own. You need guidance to understand the reasons for your behavior, to learn alternatives that can help you change your behavior, and to be guided into a new and healthy lifestyle. Going to treatment give you access to professional substance use disorder treatment specialists who are specifically trained in methods that effectively deal with these issues.

Another reason drug and alcohol treatment is important is because it educates you on how to functionally cope with your everyday issues without turning to drugs or alcohol—something incredibly difficult to do on your own

According to the Office of National Drug Control Policy, effective drug treatment should, at the very least, lead to the following outcomes:
● Reduced use of primary drug
● Improve employment functioning
● Improved educational status
● Improved interpersonal relationships
● Improved general health and medical status
● Improved legal status
● Improved mental health status
