Welcome to Caldwell Counseling Center
Individual Counseling – Family Counseling – Teletherapy – Evaluations –Interventions
Are you struggling with substance use or abuse of some kind? Has it risen to a level of interference in your day to day activities or has it become the day today activity? Are you wondering what your life could look like without the use of alcohol and other drugs or if that is even possible? Are you drinking or using and seeing signs of it headed in a potentially bad direction? Sober Curious?
Substance use or abuse also known as Substance Use Disorder (SUD) has three specifiers of use that are mild, moderate, or severe use. Regardless of where you fall on this spectrum getting the help you need to get back to, or maybe find for the first time, a healthy balance in your life can be challenging. SUD is a shame-based disease that many people do not understand as it affects a person’s behavior unlike anything else. Anxiety, depression, grief and loss generally accompany a SUD as well as relationship and other behavioral issues.
Addiction and the behaviors that occur as a result do not and cannot define the whole person. We are much more than addiction or recovery, we are human beings…complicated, wonderful, imperfect, human beings, with many intricate parts working together that include biological, psychological, social, and spiritual pieces. Addiction can negatively affect each one of these areas of our lives causing even more anxiety and stress. Caldwell Counseling Center will work with you to help you discover your pathway to recovery!
The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) asks the question:
Can addiction be treated successfully?
“Yes, addiction is a treatable disorder. Research on the science of addiction and the treatment of substance use disorders has led to the development of research-based methods that help people to stop using drugs and resume productive lives, also known as being in recovery.” (NIDA, 2019)
