Silver Maple Recovery offers effective, evidence-based substance abuse treatment to individuals and families in an atmosphere of compassion and respect. If you or someone you love is struggling with alcohol or drugs, there is hope.
Are alcohol or drugs no longer the solution? The progression of addiction is insidious. It is often hidden to the individual but painfully evident to those around them. The defining characteristic of addiction is continued use despite escalating harm to the individual and their loved ones.
Addiction distances the using person from family, values, interests, and their true character. The “ease and comfort” once provided by using devolves into a profound source of shame and powerlessness, compounded by the inexplicable return to continued use. Despite these realities, contemplating a life without drugs or alcohol is often inconceivable to the using person, illustrating the baffling nature of addiction.
