Where we can help you with your Substance Use
It’s unlikely that you or your loved one will wake up and choose to have substance use or dependency issues. However, it can feel that way with some people, and that’s why it’s important to begin counseling for symptomatic issues before they can become substance dependency issues. It means you’ve taken the first step in identifying that you have a problem that you need some professional help with understanding and resolving.
Left untreated, substance dependency can create long-lasting, and sometimes, irreversible behaviors. Our extremely competent and professional team understands the power of dependency and also the power of recovery.
Identifying yourself or your loved one as having substance use or dependency issue can be difficult, and the best place to start is with a free phone call to Insight Counseling and Wellness. We can help you work out any of the symptoms below, or with others, that may not be listed below.
