The relief you seek is inside of you…let’s find it and make it stronger than the problem! You may be fed up with using/abusing substances to cope with other issues (anxiety, depression, post-trauma, etc), feeling a happier life will always be out of your reach or tired of looking in the mirror and seeing shame, guilt, or discontent. You might not even remember a time things didn’t feel this way. You’re ready to relieve yourself of the control substances seem to have over you . You’re ready to regain the confidence in yourself you once had. Most of all, you’re ready to flourish in life rather than just live (survive).
