Need more help deciding?

Addiction is a complex disease. When a loved one is suffering from addiction, they are unable to stop using a chemical substance or engage in a behavior even if they want or need to. People with addiction can’t control the compulsion to drink, use drugs, eat, gamble or be consumed by any number of other potentially self-defeating actions. Even shopping and playing video games can be addictive. Addiction can wreck relationships, families and communities.

For those who suffer with an addiction, therapy can help. A specially trained counselor can help an addicted person manage their symptoms and succeed in the fight against addiction. In short, a professional therapist can help an addicted person get well. At Thriveworks in Mt. Pleasant, we help people suffering with addiction overcome the disease and live happier, healthier lives. If you’re ready to schedule a session, please call us at 843-606-6223.

My therapist at Thriveworks, Susan, is warm and and relatable. I am a late-diagnosed autistic woman. I am basically now learning what everyone else learned in kindergarten. I have a history of broken marriages and jobs I was invited to leave because I didn't fit in, to put it mildly. She has helped me in so many ways, and I can now see decisions I made that I thought were just what had happened to me. I feel much more capable and hopeful now. I wish I could have met her years ago. I have gone to many therapists over the years, but now I can see how I can feel hopeful about my life and my relationships with my daughters and my grandchildren.
