Alcoholism and Drug Addiction Stone Mountain GA

Most people don’t want to admit they have a problem with alcoholism or drug addiction. They may be able to control it at times (but not all the time) and this reinforces the idea that they can quit anytime they want. Do you find this to be true for you? If you’ve ever lost jobs, relationships or opportunities because of alcohol or drugs, or been involved with the law because of alcohol or drugs and continue to use in spite of these consequences, it’s likely you have a problem with alcohol and drugs and cannot quit on your own.
