DRUG/ALCOHOL DEPENDENCY

Addiction is more than a physical dependence on drugs or alcohol. Even after detox, inpatient, and/or outpatient treatment when your body is no longer hooked, you’re at high risk for relapse. Certain psychological and social factors can be powerful triggers that lead to relapse:

  • Stress, especially sudden life stresses

  • Cues in the environment, like visiting a neighborhood

  • Social networks, like spending time with friends who continue to use 

Counseling helps you escape cravings and learn to manage what life throws at you without drugs or alcohol. Promoting recovery includes:

  • Maintenance Therapy

  • Contingency Management Therapy

  • Motivational Interviewing

  • Couples and Family Therapy
