Substance abuse is consuming. Many people mistakenly believe it’s the result of bad choices or circumstantial decisions, but in fact, it’s a disease—one that needs to be understood, managed and overcome in the same way you would any other disease. At Apple Valley Counseling Services, LLC, we work hard to provide Yakima, WA residents the addiction counseling they need to understand their condition and find the strength to overcome it.
We believe anyone is capable of sobriety—you just need the information, support and resources to find it and hold onto it. If you or a loved one is suffering from drug abuse or addiction, reach out to us today to learn more about our counseling options.
Drug Abuse Counseling
Understanding addiction is the first step to overcoming it. Many people realize they have a substance abuse problem and know they should stop, but it’s simply not within their ability to overcome their disease—because they don’t realize how it affects them.
Through drug abuse counseling, we approach addiction from a medical standpoint, as the disease it is. We’ll help you understand your mental components of addiction, including how chemical dependency changes the brain and plays on our weaknesses. We’ll also discuss the physical aspects of dependency and help you combat temptation, withdrawal and impulse. Our approach to drug abuse counseling isn’t solely to promote abstinence, but to educate Yakima, WA residents so they feel empowered in their fight to overcome chemical dependencies.
Our drug abuse counseling programs are meant to give you the tools and support you need to achieve and maintain sobriety. We also advocate that you attend 12-step programs and engage with community support groups whenever possible. There’s no match for the power of peer support.
Drug Addiction Disassociation
You are more than your vice. No matter what substances you struggle with or what your relationship with them is, we offer addiction counseling that encourages complete disassociation with the substances in your life. This method gives you a choice: the choice to be sober.
Disassociation counseling separates you from your vice. It teaches you about how chemical dependency alters your thinking and changes the way you act, and what you can do to separate yourself as a person from the substances that control you. Through this method, you’re able to see two important variables: yourself and your vice. Choosing sobriety means choosing yourself and leaving your vice behind.
Let us help you realize your potential to overcome the substance dependency and regain control over the person you want to be, to lead the life you want to live.
Break Free From Addiction
Apple Valley Counseling Services, LLC believes in the power of perseverance. Let us help you break free from addiction and overcome your vice, so you can live a life free of dependencies. Through informative counseling and powerful disassociation techniques, we’ll help you find the strength to leave substances behind for good.
