Alcohol's Negative Effect on Women's Lives Susanville CA

Alcohol abuse, dependence, and addiction are health matters about which little is said and much of what is believed is wrong. Because of this, it is easy to start down treatment paths that result in more frustration than relief. It is, however, possible to work one’s way out of the alcohol induced fog, to assist another in doing so, and to redirect life to new and productive goals.
