Causes and Consequences of Addiction

We believe that alcohol and drug addictions typically are a condition caused by a more involved underlying problem. We help our clients identify, understand and manage the source of the underlying problem before it gets to be life threatening.

Poor behavior choices made under the influence of alcohol or drugs might have consequences that may be a lot worse than expected, which may include some or all of the following:

Loss of finances, loss of friends, loss of job, loss of respect, and humiliation and shame, legal liability, loss of freedom, loss of health, loss of life, and the list goes on.

  • Do you drink alone when you feel angry or sad?
  • Has your drinking or drug use made you late for work?
  • Does your family worry about your drinking or drug use?
