Addiction and Self Recovery New Berlin WI

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.

Addiction and Self Recovery

Lots of clients come to me who, while they wanted to come up in life, was actually stuck in a self-destructive addiction.
