Has your life become unmanageable? Have your goals and dreams gotten lost in the daily routine? Do you seek direction and balance to help decrease the negative affects of stress? You and I will work together to treat the addiction that used to make you happy and now is causing more pain than comfort.
I have extensive experience working with adolescents and their families providing education, prevention and substance abuse services. Our brains and bodies are different in certain stages of life and may be affected by trauma, the introduction of chemicals, and other significant events.
Addiction is not a moral failing, it is a disease that needs treatment from a specialist. Addiction cannot be controlled by sheer willpower and it won't go away on it's own. Our compassion and non-judgemental understanding of this disease will assure you get the treatment you deserve.
