Licensed Professional Counselor, MA, LPC, CSAT-C
When someone we care for is struggling with addiction (drugs/alcohol, sex, food, etc.), it can become a very unclear path. Pain, guilt, confusion, loss of trust, and communication, all create drastic changes in relationships which can leave us feeling hopeless, fearful, and defeated. Asking for guidance is a sign of strength, not weakness or failure, which ideally brings understanding to all involved. Often multiple addictions co-exist and each requires its own unique understanding and process of recovery.
