Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Restructuring,.

When we look at addiction we do not look at the  character of the person. Just as a person with heart disease or someone  with cancer, as examples, cannot help that this happened to them. Once  the disease of addiction starts in someone it progresses at it's own  speed and is chronic in nature.

The good news is we can put it in remission as  soon as the person stops using. We do not suggest that you try it on  your own, get help from people who 

are trained to help you.

Many people ask, " what is an addiction?" We feel  the best answer is: When you can no longer predict how much or how long  you are going to use every time you use; and when the person who is  addicted continues to use alcohol or drugs in spite of the harmful  consequences to relationships, socially, body, mind, spirit, and or  financially .

It does no good to blame the addict or alcoholic  and try to figure out why they can't stop. They don't know why either.  What they have, as the Big Book of AA states, is a phenomenon of  craving. Their bodies react differently than most people 

when they  consume drugs or alcohol.

Our goal is to educate the entire family because the whole family

 is wounded by addiction.
