Many believe that the addict is the only one affected by substance abuse and would benefit from treatment. The truth is that the family members of addicts suffer just as much as the addict themselves and can also benefit from treatment, i.e. counseling/therapy to help them learn more about addiction and how to help their loved one while they themselves heal. For more information on how I can help you and your family heal, call me at (754) 999-0716 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
