Are You Or Someone You Know Battling Drug Or Alcohol Addiction? Colonial Clinic Is Here To Help

Posted: Updated:
KHQ.COM - Substance Abuse and Alcohol Addiction does not discriminate. Everyone knows someone whether it's a family member, close friend, or friend of a friend who has been affected in some way by substance abuse or alcoholism. Perhaps you are the one battling an addiction.

No matter who it is, one of the most important things to recognize to start the process of recovery, is that drug addiction and alcoholism are brain diseases.
 
It is a common misunderstanding that people who abuse drugs simply lack morals and willpower and that they could stop abusing drugs if they would simply make the choice to change their behavior.

The truth though, is that drug addiction is a complicated disease that chemically changes the way a person's brain functions causing them to compulsively use drugs despite the harmful and life threatening affects that come with that.
 
Quitting is hard, and in order for a person to recover it not only takes an incredible amount of support and understanding from their family and friends, it can also require professional help.
 
Colonial Clinic is a chemical dependency treatment center right here in Spokane that was founded in 1985 and has since helped tens of thousands of people recover from substance abuse by using a very unique program you really won't find at most treatment centers.

Colonial Clinic uses a closed group therapy structure which provides a much higher level of security and privacy for people going through treatment. Every six weeks, Colonial Clinic begins a new group and once that group starts, no one new is allowed to join it. The people who start treatment together, stay in treatment together. This allows people to actually become close to each other, trust each other and becomes friends with each other, knowing they are going through the same thing. 

Colonial Clinic also has a great treatment and counseling program for the family members of the person battling the addiction. This allows the family to better learn how to support and encourage the abuser and also allows them to personally seek help for ways the addiction may have affected them emotionally.
 
Almost all of the counselors at Colonial Clinic are recovering addicts themselves. They understand how hard it is to overcome an addiction and they are passionate about helping others achieve recovery.

Call Colonial Clinic today to schedule a free consultation or an affordable evaluation for you or your loved one at 509-327-9831 or visit their website at: www.ColonialClinic.com

Colonial Clinic is located at: 910 N. Washington Suite 11 Spokane, WA 99201.
