Helping with The Dangers and Consequences of Substance Abuse
Alcohol abuse is a disease, and is a hard and vicious cycle to make a departure from. Alcohol and drug abuse is not a simple path to embark on. Individuals who are abusing a substance may not realize it is abuse at first.
There are many health problems and long term health effects that emerge from the abuse of drugs and alcohol. Substance abuse problems pave a gateway to withdrawal symptoms. Our office offers substance abuse and mental health services.
Substance use disorders and mental health disorders are a prevalent issue for a large demographic in the United states. Mental illness can be exacerbated by substance abuse, and can also lead to substance or alcohol-induced mental health problems.
Treatment facilities offer an array of substance abuse and mental health services. The national institute on drug abuse has information on addiction science and information on substance abuse treatment. Illegal substances and legal substances are damaging to the public health of citizens worldwide.
People with substance misuse complications have treatment options, fortunately our office is here to help. Abuse of drugs and alcohol does not only affect the user, it also affects friends and family surrounding them.

We offer a number of therapeutic services for those who use and abuse drugs. Prolonged sobriety comes with understanding how it is affecting your friends and family negatively.
Many addicts are daunted by reaching out and seeking help. Sometimes this gets to the point where the state mandates rehabilitation in extreme cases. Addiction is not a choice, this is a common misconception in the United states. Addiction is a disease and a sickness that many people struggle with everyday.
Acknowledging addiction is hard and can be daunting at times, but is a way for addicts to begin their path to sobriety. Sobriety is not an easy path to go down and takes a lot of work, support, and time. Resources such as Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous are groups that prove to addicts that they are not alone in their struggles.
Regardless of where the addict is located, there will always be support groups and professionals who want to aid the path to sobriety. We have licensed drug and alcohol counselors within our organization to help.
Illicit drugs, prescription drugs, or any drug misuse can create an unhealthy dependency on using. We strive to provide a safe and secure place to help you or any loved one overcome any challenge. More than 50 million people across the U.S. struggle with drug addiction. More than 50 million have faced situations where they felt like their life relied on substance.
In the case of prolonged alcohol struggle, our office provides exceptional intervention services. If you cannot bear watching your friend or family member struggle with substance abuse, intervention is a great option.
The Johnson intervention model is an approach in which family members and friends of the addict voice how their addiction has affected them. This is a very personal model because addiction is not only taxing on the addict themselves, but the friends and family around them. For addicts this model includes family members, friends, and colleagues.
Friends and family expressing how their loved ones’ addiction is affecting their personal life can give the struggling addict insight. The systemic intervention model is different, yet also effective. This model digs deep into psychological relationships, and as such, is a more prolonged intervention model.
Our office puts distinct emphasis on listening to people and allowing them to express themselves. We give suggestions based on that self expression and want to help in any way possible. Even as a high school student in Darien, people would open up to Robert DiRoma Jr. about their struggles.
We listen and connect with patients on a day to day basis and give professional advice on addiction. Our group offers counseling in a safe, secure, judgement free environment. Our staff is also available for speaking engagements at schools, conferences, or health related events.
Apart from appointments with my office, there are myriad amounts of resources you can seek out for counseling. Since the COVID-19 pandemic and political turmoil, there has been a spike in alcohol abuse and dependence in the United States.
The consequences of consuming alcohol for a prolonged period of time can lead to serious health problems, diseases, and death. Our goal is to give you an avenue to express and share your personal struggles while feeling comfortable and accepted.
With these rapidly changing times, many disregard the opiate crisis in the United States. Opiates have profoundly negative effects on a person and are very addictive. There is great importance in finding the right kind of addiction counseling that is fitting.
When someone is in need of addiction counseling, it is imperative that they have endless support from the community around them. Many see addiction as a wrong doing, however, it is a sickness. Every sickness needs to be treated for a long period of time.
Addiction counseling is one of the most important steps to overcoming your addiction and can be hard to manage. There are several steps that one needs to take before acknowledging that counseling is needed. We focus on getting you long term help rather than short term help.
As stated previously, addiction counseling is the most significant part in overcoming addiction. Most addicts enter drug rehabilitation centers to get sober or join groups such as AA or NA. Those groups are extremely beneficial to overcoming addiction.
Alcoholics and Narcotics anonymous is also helpful in the long run. Surrounding yourself with people who are going through similar issues that you are is highly beneficial. You are not alone in your journey.
Group settings are particularly beneficial due to the cycle-like nature of them. You start by going into the group environment, and then hear the stories of others. By going back time and time again you are not only making yourself stronger but the others around you stronger.
With experience in helping individuals with treatment, we strive to create a safe haven for you to share your truth and struggles.
