A temporary fix has lifelong consequences.

When you’re feeling uncomfortable, depressed, or upset, using drugs and alcohol can feel like a relief. They can make it easier to get through the day—but they have long-term consequences that may haunt you for the rest of your life. They can also isolate you from friends and family, lead to poor decision-making and even cause death. If drugs and alcohol feel like your only way out, they’re not—and you’re not alone.

Mental wellness is a way of life.

Mental and emotional wellness isn’t about preventing negative thoughts or feelings—it’s about knowing how to process and respond to them when they arise. This is a skill that takes time to develop. If you’re battling depressive thoughts, struggling with anxiety or just ready for emotional relief, we can help.
