Substance Use Disorders

SUBSTANCE USE DISORDERS

Addiction is a chronic condition and is defined by a physical and psychological dependence on alcohol or drugs. It oftentimes involves a pattern of relapse. Substance abuse and dependency affects a persons thinking patterns, emotions, and behaviors.

It is common for people with addictions to be aware of the problem, but struggle with stopping the behavior on their own.  At Landmark Therapy we offer alcohol abuse treatment and substance abuse therapy.  We offer treatment for many addictions.
