Lynchburg Addiction Counseling – Substance Abuse Therapy

Can addiction be treated?

Yes, but it’s a difficult process and one that you should not go through alone. Addiction is a chronic disease. Simply not using for a few days won’t cure the disease or change destructive behaviors. For most people, addictions therapy is a long-term process which includes routine checks to help overcome negative and destructive patterns.

How is addiction treated?

There several ways to treat addiction. Since addiction is not limited to drug or alcohol abuse, there are many types of treatment. Treatment options include:

  • Inpatient addiction treatment
  • Outpatient addiction counseling
  • Doctor-prescribed medications to reduce urges associated with addiction
  • Long-term addiction therapy to monitor progress and prevent relapse

A study by the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence suggested that an estimated 20 million Americans age 12 or older have used illegal drugs in the past 30 days. The National Institute on Drug Abuse reports even higher numbers and suggest that only 2.6 million of these Americans actually received treatment for their addiction.

Who is affected by addiction?

The effects of substance abuse and addictive behavior reach far beyond the individual and his or her family. In the United States today, substance abuse costs businesses an estimated $130 billion in lost productivity, more than $20 Million in healthcare, and over $40 Billion in legal costs. It increases the spread of infectious diseases, such as HIV/AIDS and hepatitis C, leads to premature death dues to overdose or other medical complications, increases negative effects on unborn children, and leads to crime, unemployment, and homelessness.

ion while visiting Lynchburg and I was agonizing on how to go forward. Crisis never happens at a convenient time but we were quickly able to get a family counseling meeting with a very respectful and skilled therapist, Regina. In one visit alone, Regina was able to help us see clearly the next steps needed for healthy family dynamics, and although I wish I could bring her back home with me, perhaps our other family members will take advantage of this great blessing available. Thanking God for your help.

y goals and was patient while I transitioned from the shock of the crisis to a point of being able to listen to her useful and practical ideas of how to move forward. She helped me realize the tendency to blame others and helped me to take responsibility for how I contribute to my own discontent. I would highly recommend Kimberly, especially to someone who is ready to make changes in their life.
