It’s the disease of chemical dependence.

     Perhaps you’re a young parent, seeking preventative information. Perhaps you’re concerned about (or frustrated by) a neighbor or co-worker. If your world is directly impacted by someone else’s use of substances, or even compulsions such as gambling, shopping, computer gaming, or intimacy-seeking, then the series "Someone Else's Substance Use" can reshape your future and your emotional health.

     Make no mistake: Alcohol is a DRUG. Nicotine is a DRUG. There is no such thing as alcohol OR drugs . . . it's alcohol or OTHER drugs. The brain does not distinguish between legal or prescription or illicit. A drug is a Drug is a DRUG to the brain.

      Not everyone will be a good fit for this intense education. At your first visit, we'll determine whether or not this approach is compatible with your needs. Then, if we agree that you're in a safe space to take this on, we'll get you registered for the course, which is 5 Private Modules, 50 minutes each.

     This one-to-one, confidential course consistently generates healing in the lives of participants. You will be equipped with state-of-the-science information, and real-life solutions. Please note: These are not Counseling Sessions; this is coursework, although Module 5 is personalized. We strongly suggest scheduling Counseling in conjunction with the Course. From an emotional standpoint, S.U.D.* is highly "contagious". (*S.U.D.: Substance Use Disorder.)

     Your action on this has started…CONGRATULATIONS. Find out just how “not alone” you are. Call me today at (231) 259-5649. We probably have a lot in common.
