Facing an Addiction?
Addiction has many different faces. Perhaps you or someone in your life has struggled with alcohol, opiates, or prescription meds. Maybe you are a person who has tried using marijuana or other substances. We live in a culture that feeds our need to feel good and look good. Body image concerns often lead to food addictions and move into eating disorders. With smartphones and the internet, a person has access to pornography in microseconds. These can lead to destructive sexual addictions.
At Agape, Addiction is recognized as a stumbling block in an individual’s life path. Stumbling but not fallen. Temporary not permanent. It’s a chance for our Licensed Clinical Addictions Counselors to come alongside and offer a hand up and steer you to recovery and freedom.
“I have absolutely no pleasure in the stimulants in which I sometimes so madly indulge. It has not been in the pursuit of pleasure that I have periled life and reputation and reason. It has been the desperate attempt to escape from torturing memories, from a sense of insupportable loneliness and a dread of some strange impending doom.”
―Edgar Allan Poe
