At Lifeskills Counseling, our therapists can provide individual, groups, couples and family counseling.
Our treatment specialization includes:
ADOLESCENT DRUG USE
Adolescent drug use is reaching epidemic levels. With drug legalization, many youth have no stigma with the use of drugs. Whether you merely suspect drug or alcohol use in your child, have evidence of experimentation, or have a child with significant dug involvement it is time to seek help.
Often called a gateway drug, marijuana use has become commonplace. Marijuana has grown in potency and addictiveness. You or your child will need help kicking the habit.
Alcohol abuse is widespread and impacts whole families, not just the drinker. If you or a loved one is binge drinking, drinking to the point where it affects others, or has full blown alcoholism, it is time to take action!
PRESCRIPTION DRUG ABUSE
Prescription drug abuse is rampant in the modern world. Many people don’t recognize that they are addicted to prescription pills simply because they have been prescribed by a doctor. But it is very easy to develop an addiction to anxiety medications, pain medications, and muscle relaxers. If you suspect that you or a loved one is abusing prescription drugs, see the prescribing doctor, and let us help you take control back into your li
AMPHETAMINE AND COCAINE ABUSE
Stimulants produce euphoria, alertness, and are highly addictive. Stimulants can be either legal (ADHD medications) or illegal (cocaine, crystal meth). They are fast acting and can be consumed as pills, snorted as powders, smoked in a pipe or injected. When they are abused, stimulants can produce anxiety, insomnia, sexual problems, mood and personality changes, or psychosis. Let’s see if we can help both the addicted person and his/her family.
HEROIN & OPIOID ABUSE
Heroin started out as a wonder drug to help veterans manage pain. It is a refined form of opium or morphine. Heroin and opioids have strong addictive properties. They are especially difficult to treat because of the unpleasant withdrawal symptoms they produce, and because the addiction may have started as a way to manage pain, which returns even worse when the drug is removed. If you or a loved one has a problem with opioids, let’s see if we can help.
Our staff have years of experience in treating addictions and co-occurring issues, contact us or call for more for more information. We will work with you to develop the best treatment plan for you situation, there is hope for you and your loved ones!

Altogether, we will go over the assessment and discuss a plan on how to move forward to tailor to what your needs are.
