Let me take this opportunity to formally welcome you to our outpatient program. We are a small outpatient agency addressing alcohol and substance abuse problems. Alcohol and other drug abuse problems strike 1 out of 4 Americans in many different ways; we recognize drug addiction and alcoholism as a treatable disease. It is a disease that is primary. In other words it is not a symptom of a problem – it is the problem.
We recognize this disease as a family illness and deal with family and relationship issues while in our counseling program.
It is important for you to know that we strongly support the use of self-help programs; particularly, Narcotics Anonymous, Alcoholics Anonymous and Al-Anon (for spouse/partners).
