Need Help With Addiction?

Drinking and using certain drugs in specific contexts is normalized by society and has become part of American culture. Alcohol is used for celebrating, rejoicing, and having fun, while the occasional partying can be accompanied by drug use.

It is recognized by most that using alcohol in moderation and recreational drugs infrequently is safe and does not negatively impact overall functioning. There are many people who drink alcohol in moderation and use recreational drugs infrequently and are able to sustain a healthy life filled with values, direction, and purpose.

However, 1 in 6 millennials in America will struggle with substance abuse and experience external problems related to their ongoing use. What seemed to be fun and games turns into a painful reality that is far more complex than originally anticipated.

Individuals that are struggling with drinking or drugging may notice that work, family, and friendships suffer tremendously. Serious legal troubles, health issues and unhealthy behaviors can enter the picture as well. It is clear the problems associated with substance abuse extend beyond immediate personal impact. It is typical that mental health symptoms such as anxiety and depression join addiction and can lead to feeling worse and intensify overall suffering.

You may have tried self-discipline, will-power, and self-control to stop using, however, miserably fail and feel defeated, hopeless, and desperate. When alcohol and drugs hijack your life and lead you to lose control of who you are and how you want to live, it is imperative to seek out therapy from someone who specializes in addiction.
