Identifying a Drug Problem
Everyone needs help! Almost any of us can get into a position where we do not recognize our own problems and sometimes are just not able to admit we need help. If we are lucky, we have friends and/or family who are willing to call attention to the issue, and to motivate us to get the treatment and help we need. In addition to being addicted to drugs or alcohol, many of us suffer from related behaviors or moods:
• • Depression and anxiety
• • Withdrawal from family and friends
• • Poor performance at work or school
• • Borrowing or stealing money
• • Personality Change
• • Long, unexplained absences
• • Being arrested/in trouble with the law
• • Anger, violence or irrational behavior
• • Dramatic changes in physical appearance such as weight loss or gain, tooth decay, skin problems or hair loss
Drug Addiction and Abuse Treatment Help
Counseling gives the individual a chance to explore the root causes of their problem, and better understand the “triggers” that led to drug abuse and addiction. Individual, group or other specialized forms of counseling and therapy are provided at Turning Point Counseling & Recovery Treatment Center. This is where the true work of recovery takes place, as the addict gets to the reasons behind their addiction. Once those reasons are addressed, the addict can learn to manage their triggers and truly progress in recovery.
Finally, aftercare programs help the individual make a smooth transition back into life after treatment. This may include placement at a sober living facility, drug testing, continued meetings with your behavioral health counselor at Turning Point Counseling & Recovery Treatment Center on a one-on-one basis, or other regularly scheduled outpatient groups or coaching support.
