Addiction is cunning, baffling and powerful

Substance Abuse Counseling

  One is too many and a thousand isn’t enough-does this sound familiar to you?  Is this your daily life?  The disease of addiction is cunning, baffling and powerful and you might not realize you have a problem.   Do you tell yourself “But I go to work every day”,” I only drink on special occasions, only to find out those special occasions are any day that ends in “Y”, or “I can stop anytime I want do but you NEVER do?”  The Hope and Healing Agency can help you discover how alcohol and other drugs might be affecting your life, your family, and your job.  We do so without judgment or moralizing.  While abstinence is an important goal for many with alcohol problems, we do not insist on it.  We do believe in a strong self help component.  These are not limited to 12 steps groups but can include church groups, prayer groups, Rational Recovery and others.  Call us and come in for a free consultation.
