Addiction Counseling
addiction-counseling.jpg  In need of help for addiction? Wondering what your options are? Have you been in this situation before? The real question is do you want to get help? Of course you do, that's why your looking for addiction counseling. Addiction is not a disease and it is not transmitted from one person to another. Addiction is being unable to control the compulsive urge to drink or use drugs. There is usually some sort of underlying pain or problem that the addicted personis trying to handle, but is incapable of facing. In recovery, getting the person clean from all drug residues is the first step. Finding the root of the problem and helping the addict face the problem is next. 

When addiction counseling is needed, it's best to do some research on your own first and then find a counselor that you feel confident in and comfortable with before you move forward in finding a treatment facility. A knowledgeable counselor will know a lot about drugs and about the different treatment types available and can tell you which ones are good and which ones are not. When you are looking for treatment, make sure to find a facilty that fits your needs and can help you recover from addiction in a natural way without the use of other drugs. The only time a person should ever use medication to get off of drugs is in severe cases when it could be potientally dangerous or fatal if the person withdrew from drugs without medical help. This type of medical detox should never take more than one month. Anything longer is a substitution of one drug for another. 

Once you have found a trustworthy counselor, don't be afraid to ask questions. Asking questions help you find the answers you are looking for in a more timely manner. Counselors are standing by at Narconon Arowhead to help you in any way possible in your search for help. You can call our toll free hotline at 1-800-468-6933 and speak to a certified counselor at any time.
