Addiction counseling can help you moderate your substance use. Practice harm reduction or abstinence in a non-judgmental therapy setting in Los Angeles.
Maybe substance use originally helped you feel part of a group or made socializing easier. Or maybe drugs or alcohol helped numb the pain or avoid difficult situations.
Unfortunately, it often doesn’t work and BECOMES the problem because the substance use doesn’t allow you to address the underlying issues of why you started in the first place.
If you’re in that headspace and you’re ready to start taking a look at your relationship to substances, that’s the best time to make a change.
How do you know if you need help with your substance use?
Have friends and family commented on your drinking and/or drug use? Have you noticed that substances are creating new problems for you or making existing issues worse? These can be red flags around your substance use. Some other flags can include difficulty with work, school or interpersonal relationships because of your substance use, a desire to moderate use but difficulty in doing so, a feeling of being out of control with your usage, turning to substances to avoid difficult feelings and needing to use more of the substance for the same effect.
Substance abuse counseling can help you identify if there’s an issue going on for you with drugs and/or alcohol and can help you start addressing your usage.
Substance abuse counseling in Los Angeles may help you take control of your future while being able to get a handle on your past.
