About Substance Abuse
Substance abuse and addictions can take many forms. Most people initially think about addictions to drugs or alcohol – and rightly so since more than 23 million Americans have problems with alcohol or drugs. But addictive behaviors can include gambling, sex, Internet porn, food, compulsive shopping and even cosmetic surgery. At The Life Change Group, we understand the destructive nature that substance abuse and similar addictive disorders can have on families, marriages, children and communities.
While there isn’t a single solution or stepped program to dealing with all addictions, we have found in our more than 15 years of clinical and therapeutic practice that the key to dealing with substance abuse is to first take ownership of the issues and then participate in regular counseling to provide both accountability and a safe place to improve communication with your family and support group. We can help create a path for your journey to recovery.
