Addiction is a chronic but treatable disease that involves the compulsive use of a substance or behavior, despite negative social, financial, legal, and other consequences. People can become addicted to substances, such as drugs, alcohol, and food or become addicted to behaviors and processes such as sex, gambling, shopping, and video games. These are just a few examples.
Getting treatment for addiction is extremely important and luckily help is available. We can work with people struggling with addiction in many ways. Often people are struggling with motivation to change or lack of confidence to do so. They may have underlying issues that trigger the addiction. It’s possible that they have a co-occurring issue such as anxiety or depression, which further complicates addiction treatment. we have a Kentucky licensed alcohol and drug counselor as well as other therapists well trained in addiction treatment. Our therapists understand the complexities of addiction and are able to work with the addicted individual as well as the family members that are affected by the addiction, to help restore health and emotional stability to those involved.
In efforts to make sure everyone that needs help can access it, we are now providing telehealth coverage throughout Kentucky for those that don’t have access to care close to their home.
