Compulsive Behavior and Substance Use can be tied to trauma and affect anyone regardless of their background. Our counselors work with you to explore the underlying issues that may have led you to use substances or develop compulsive coping mechanisms. When you are ready, we can work towards eliminating substance use altogether. We recognize that not everyone is ready to stop using substances, but progress can still be made. We don't want you to feel shame about using substances as a coping mechanism. Instead, we can collaborate to minimize the negative effects that substance use may have on your life.
