About Changed Lives Mental Health And Substance Use Counseling
Changed Lives Substance Abuse Counseling LLC views chemical dependency as an illness that can eventually result in grave consequences. It is a disease that is largely misunderstood and its seriousness is often underestimated. As an illness that affects all life areas, chemical dependence does not appear in isolation. Family members and other significant persons suffer serious consequences and can unknowingly contribute to the progression of the illness.
Chemical dependency is a chronic and progressive illness and does not spontaneously improve without treatment. Changed Lives Substance Abuse Counseling LLC basis for existence on in its philosophical tenet that chemical dependency is both preventable and treatable in the outpatient setting though the client might suffer from withdrawal severe enough to require an initial period of medical stabilization.
