Change to Recovery from Alcoholism and Drug Addiction Aberdeen SD

Alcohol and drugs are not the problems; they are what people use to numb the internal pain, thus helping oneself cope. These issues have both physical and psychological components—anything from anemia, hypoglycemia, or a sluggish thyroid to attention deficient disorder, brain-wave pattern imbalances, or deep emotional pain—Depression, Anxiety, Panic, OCD, Anger, Sadness, Fear.
