Addiction and Self Recovery Franklinton LA

I’m not speaking of any particular addiction, as we all have one or two in our lives. However, for sake of discussion, the primary addictions that people fall to when they find that their lives are faltering are alcohol and drugs. Of course, these usually come into play once their addictions to depression and negative situations overtake their lives and they feel as though they have no where left to turn.

I’m not speaking of any particular addiction, as we all have one or two in our lives.
