Overcoming alcohol addiction

“The chains of habit are generally too small to be felt until they are too strong to be broken.”
– Samuel Johnson

Alcohol addictionAddiction can be devastating. One of the most common forms of addiction, alcohol dependence, causes an estimated 100,000 deaths annually.  Fortunately, there are a number of effective treatments for addiction, including self-help strategies, psychotherapy, medications, technology, and rehabilitation programs.

Audubon Counseling has specialists that work one-on-one with individuals depending on the specific circumstances of their alcohol addiction. It is essential to truly understand the origins of this pattern of abuse.  If you’re an alcoholic, you’re not just drinking because you’re thirsty.  There are driving forces behind these behaviors that counseling can help discover and correct.  In some cases people are medicating themselves due to anxiety, depression, pain, sadness, etc.  It becomes a vice to conceal reality and numb the mind.  Clearly this is not a healthy lifestyle.

At Audubon Counseling, we respect your privacy and schedule sessions that are most convenient for you.  If you or a loved one is battling alcohol addiction, please feel free to contact us to discreetly discuss paths for recovery.  We can help improve your quality of life.
