Have you or someone you love developed an addiction? Do you drink to excess? Abuse drugs? Have a behavioral addiction such as gambling, sex and love, shopping, internet?
If you have become dependent on these substances or behaviors, you may find that your desire for them is strong enough and persistent enough that you have problems stopping its use – even when there are harmful consequences. With addiction and substance abuse, changes in a person’s body, mind, and behavior are common. And they are treatable.
A Holistic Approach to Addictions and Substance Abuse
At Embrace Counseling Services, we work to treat you as a whole person, often working in tandem with other intensive outpatient programs, medical professionals, and 12-step groups that specifically deal with your concerns. Clients who come in “dually diagnosed” usually have underlying mental health issues, such as problems with self-esteem, body image, depression, anxiety or other related issues. We can help deal with all of this.
Rather than abusing substances or compulsively turning to addictive behaviors to numb out your emotions, then feeling ashamed, we help you learn to face your fears and anxieties, and to do it sober and mindfully.
If you or someone you care about is struggling with addiction or substance abuse, get help. Call Embrace Counseling Services today at (877) 651-1841.
