Addictions

Addiction is a chronic disease that destroys individuals and devastates families.  It also impacts society on all levels: employment, education, and government.

At LifeWork we take a multi-modal approach to treating addiction.  Certified addictions counselors are adept in formulating treatment plans that help individuals trapped in addiction find solutions that work.  A combination of psycho-education, cognitive-behavioral, and  group modalities give individuals tools that aid their recovery.

Family counseling provides support and education to loved ones so they can modify their roles in a manner that breaks the addictive cycle and supports recovery.

Multi-modal therapy

  • Individual counseling
  • Group counseling
  • Psycho-education
  • Family support

LifeWork now offers intervention services to assist families who want to help a loved one trapped in addiction get the help they need.
