Is your alcohol or substance abuse starting to affect your relationships with friends or family?
Do you worry about what your substance abuse may be doing to your body?
Has your performance at school or work been suffering from your alcohol or substance abuse?
Has your alcohol or substance usage gotten you in trouble with the law?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you should know you’re not alone – and there is help.
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, while about 22.7 million Americans need treatment for a problem related to drugs or alcohol, only 11% of them are receiving the treatment they need.
One part of the reason for this “treatment gap” is people convincing themselves that their dependency “isn’t that bad,” or that they “don’t deserve” the kind of help they need. In reality, everyone suffering from alcohol and substance abuse is deserving of the care and support to help them better their lives. Nobody deserves to live under the thumb of addiction.
The fact of the matter is that while nobody can turn back the clock, you can and should have a brighter future ahead of you!
For years, I’ve been helping people suffering from alcohol and substance abuse of many levels with evidence-based therapy. I understand how tough alcohol or substance dependency can be to beat because I am passionate about helping people win that battle. You can have a better, happier life, and I’d love to show you the way.
So if any of these sounds like you…
- On most days, the only thing that makes me feel okay is a drink/hit
- I’m usually thinking about when I can get my next drink/hit
- I hide my alcohol/substance use from my friends and/or family
- There are things I want or need that I can’t afford because of my alcohol/substance use
- I don’t know how to stop or lessen my alcohol/substance use
- I’m afraid to stop or lessen my alcohol/substance use
…Then I’m so glad you’re considering reaching out.
I know the struggle you’re fighting isn’t easy, but the good news is there’s no reason you have to fight it alone. While I know alcohol and substance abuse can come with unneeded shame or stigma that may have prevented you from seeking help in the past, it’s never too late to take your first step towards a better tomorrow.
