You may be asking yourself, “How did I get to this point?”
You never intended for this to get out of hand. Maybe you started using drugs or alcohol socially because it was what people did. Or maybe you’ve been around it for as long as you can remember, and it seems that there’s never been a time when it wasn’t around in one way or another. Whether you smoke, drink, or use prescription drugs to get through the day, it isn’t working for you anymore. Substance abuse counseling is available to help you figure out what happened so that you have the clarity to move forward when you’re ready.
You’ve been hearing it from the people in your life for a while now.
You need to slow down, it’s getting in the way of work or relationships. You might not be able to see how your substance use is holding you back, but the people you love have distanced themselves because of it. Using alcohol or marijuana might be a way of coping with dissatisfaction at work, home, or in relationships, but now you’re ready to try turning it around and getting back on track.
Perhaps you worry that your teen is using alcohol or marijuana and how it’s affecting their education and health.
Abuse and addictions are serious issues, and you want better for your child than this. Yet no matter what you say, they just won’t let you in. A therapist who is trained in substance abuse counseling can work with your teen, collaboratively, to start creating the future they want. The counselor can also help them figure out better ways of coping with stress, trauma, or the challenges that brought them to use the substance in the first place.
