My Expert Service

I have worked in the field of Addiction Counseling and Treatment for over 25yrs. No one is hopeless. As long as there is breath there is hope. Not only does addiction destroy relationships, marriages, jobs all aspects of one's life, but it wounds the soul of those addicted, and those dear to them. There are biological, psychological, and social reasons that make the addictive cycle so devastating, however, there are advances in treatment and diagnosis that assist in helping anyone to move from the abyss of addiction, to the light and stable ground of recovery.
