Substance Use

Have you ever wondered if your substance use is problematic? Using alcohol and drugs to help cope with pain, discomfort, trauma, loss, depression, anxiety, and more is very common. Yet more people than not that use substances of any kind report using substances in excess at least once in their lives.

We are here to help you examine this relationship, decrease your use to a level that is more supportive of your health and well-being, learn healthier coping strategies, decrease risk for relapse, and connect with positive support.
