Addiction Counseling – Therapists and Counselors in Greenville, SC
Who is affected by addiction?
People who are addicted to drugs often do not believe that they have a problem with substance abuse. They can’t see the problems that their drug use has caused, nor do they don’t feel like they are sick or out-of-control. As a result, they generally do not seek help for their drug addiction. Others recognize that they have a drug problem, but feel so overwhelmed by the circumstances in their lives that they cannot see a way to break free from their addiction.
Can addiction be treated?
Many people ask if drug addiction can be treated. The answer is “Yes!” Addiction can be treated. The length and style of therapy varies, but many people find that counseling for addiction helps them fight the urge to use drugs and even reclaim control of their lives. Regardless of whether you have abused substances for a short period of time or you have an extensive history battling substance abuse, therapy can help you understand addiction, recognize its effect on you and your loved ones, and develop a plan to help you get (and stay) clean. You don’t need to hit rock bottom to begin treatment for addiction. You can get help today!
How is drug addiction treated?
Drug addiction can be treated with medication, but medication alone cannot keep someone from using. It simply helps a person fight the urge to use drugs long enough for the substance to leave the body. Once addictive substances are no longer present in the body, therapy for substance abuse can be a valuable part of recovery, providing assistance with developing a new way of living, learning how to avoid situations that lead to temptation, creating a new way of thinking, and finding new ways to respond to the pressures of life.
