There is no one cause for addiction and it must be approached from a biopsychosocial perspective. I can offer answers to questions concerning substance abuse (alcohol and drugs) and related topics such as depression and anxiety. I will not answer questions concerning medical opinion or diagnosis.
I currently work as a substance abuse counselor and I have extensive experience from counseling in an outpatient setting as well as counseling in an opiate maintenance therapy (methadone), residential, aftercare and DOC Reentry.
