Living with a substance issue is all-consuming.

If you’re struggling with substance use, we understand how isolating and overwhelming it can be. It feels like no one truly understands what you are going through and that there’s no way out. You feel like you can never get ahead, in your relationships, work, or personal responsibilities. You wake up feeling crummy, swearing that you will do better next time. Yet the cycle continues. Every day feels like an uphill battle. But amidst the turmoil, there is hope. You don’t have to rely on substances to feel “good,” or even just to feel “normal.”

It’s never too late to take the first steps towards building the life that you have always wanted.

What is A Substance Use Disorder?

A substance use disorder (SUD) goes beyond simply regretting having one too many drinks. A substance Use Disorder (SUD) is the official term for those who have trouble controlling their use of drugs or alcohol. You might be spending a lot of time, energy, and money using or recovering from the effects of substances. You might notice that your substance use is affecting your relationships with others, your ability to fulfill your responsibilities, or negatively impacting your health. You might need more and more of the substance to get the same effect, and you might spend a substantial amount of time recovering after using a substance. If you’re dealing with a SUD, you might be feeling stressed, ashamed, guilty, or like you need to keep it a secret from others. You might find yourself lying to your friends and loved ones about how much or how often you are using. It can also be tough to resist the urge to use. Maybe you even tell yourself that you “won’t drink that much tonight,” but inevitably it seems like you overdo it and lose control. Even if you use a substance “only on the weekends,” or “only in social situations,” you may still meet the criteria for a substance use disorder.

Let us provide you with the assistance and insights necessary to regain control and navigate life’s ups and downs without feeling like you have to rely on something else to get you through. Our team of professionals is here to help, regardless of the type of substance use issue you’re facing – whether it involves excessive alcohol consumption, misuse of prescription drugs, illicit substances, over-the-counter medications, or any other form of substance-related challenge. You are not alone and we can help guide you on a path forward.

You don’t have to handle it alone.

How do I know if I struggle with substance use?

There’s often confusion about what qualifies as a SUD. You don’t have to drink or use every day to have one. Regular binge drinking, or occasional but heavy use of another substance, might signal symptoms of a SUD. Severe withdrawal symptoms aren’t always necessary either; even a hangover constitutes alcohol withdrawal, for example. The difference between healthy and unhealthy substance use lies in its impact on your life. If a substance has a significant negative impact on your life; you may need support to regain control.

Here are some common signs that substance use is becoming a problem or may indicate the presence of Substance Use Disorder (SUD):

In Substance Use Counseling, we uncover the root of the issue and provide practical strategies to help you regain control over substance use.

How substance use treatment can help

This disorder is a spectrum—there is no one-size-fits-all treatment plan. That is why treatment will always begin with an assessment meeting to discuss what you are struggling with, how you feel, your day-to-day stressors and concerns, and what your goals are.

We will always meet you where you’re at, and your plan will be specifically tailored to your needs. Your individual plan could consist of learning strategies for how to manage triggers, strengthening relationships with those around you, and building a fulfilling and meaningful life outside of substance use.

Substance Use Treatment can help you:

Substance use treatment can help you regain control over your life. It provides the tools and support you need to break free from the grip of addiction and make empowered choices that align with your values and goals. You’ll no longer feel like substances dictate your actions and decisions.
Addiction can strain or even destroy relationships with loved ones. Treatment offers the opportunity to repair and rebuild these connections. Through therapy and support, you can mend broken trust, communicate more effectively, and foster healthier relationships built on understanding, empathy, and mutual respect.

Substance use treatment equips you with healthy coping mechanisms to navigate life’s challenges without turning to drugs or alcohol. You’ll learn effective ways to manage stress, cope with difficult emotions, and handle triggers without resorting to substance use. These skills empower you to face life’s ups and downs with resilience and confidence.

Substance use can take a toll on your physical health, leading to a range of medical issues. Treatment addresses not only the addiction but also the associated health concerns. You’ll receive medical care, nutritional support, and lifestyle guidance to restore and optimize your physical well-being, promoting healing and vitality.
Addiction often coexists with mental health disorders such as depression, anxiety, or trauma. Substance use treatment offers integrated care to address both addiction and underlying mental health issues. You’ll receive therapy, counseling, and psychiatric support tailored to your unique needs, fostering emotional healing and stability.
Addiction can overshadow your sense of purpose and dampen your enthusiasm for life. Treatment helps you reconnect with your passions, interests, and aspirations. You’ll explore your values, set meaningful goals, and rediscover the joys of sober living. With newfound clarity and purpose, you can pursue a fulfilling and meaningful life beyond addiction.

You’ve come to the right place.

A co-occurring disorder is a secondary disorder that is present at the same time as another. Oftentimes, those who struggle with substance use will have a co-occurring disorder such as depression, anxiety, or PTSD. In order to effectively treat substance use issues, it is important to address any co-occurring psychological factors that are contributing to the presence of SUD.
Our clinicians are committed to ongoing evaluation and feedback from the client. If the client and clinician decide that a higher level of care is necessary, the clinician will help facilitate that. We have many wonderful resources in the community that we can connect you with.
Confidentiality is of the utmost importance to us when working with clients individually. A family member would be contacted only in an emergency situation or at the request of the client.
