Thinking about your use of drugs or alcohol, have you ever asked yourself,
“Is this serious enough to seek treatment?”
If you have... it’s time.
The power that simple substances can hold over us is incredible, isn’t it?
Often without even realizing it, you become dependent on those tiny “fixes”—
one more drink, just one extra pill—
to get you through the day.
For most people, the development of a substance abuse problem happens so gradually, they have trouble noticing it—and it’s only when a friend or family member points it out that they realize there might be a serious issue.
Still not sure if seeking treatment is the next step for you?
Take a look through this list, and answer each question honestly:
Is your drinking or use of drugs…
- ... causing disruption in your personal or professional relationships?
- … creating feelings of guilt?
- … disrupting your daily life or routines?
- … interfering with your ability to work (such as coming in hungover or under the influence)?
- … gradually increasing, as you realize you need more to achieve the effect you’re used to?
Answering “yes” to any of the questions above is a very strong indicator that it’s time to ask for help.
We’re not here to judge.
We’re here to help.
If you’re ready to make a change, we’d love for you to come talk to us about the resources we have available for you. In most cases, you’ll be able to sit down with one of our substance abuse counselors the very same day you come in.
We’re not going to force you into a treatment program; we will help you understand the different options you have for recovery, then allow you to make the choice to pursue a treatment path.
Every person’s path is different, but some of the most common substance abuse treatment options our clients find helpful include:
- Medication-assisted therapy, where we can initiate physical detox for you and prescribe medication to reduce its side effects
- Providing a safe, comfortable place to go through detox and withdrawal, with 24-hour monitoring and support
- Residential therapy programs (up to 9 months) for men, women with their young children, and veterans
- Confidential recovery support groups
If you’re worried about the cost of coming in to see us, don’t be.
It’s our goal to offer services to everyone who needs them, and we’ll work with you to make your care affordable and accessible.
Yes, making the choice to address your substance abuse can be hard.
But you can do it.
And we’ll be here for you every step of the way.
Stop by your local Peak office to get started… whenever you’re ready.
