Addiction

If you or a loved one is experiencing an addiction of any kind, it can become a very serious problem that destroys lives. Professional treatment can help addicts overcome their urges and take back control of their lives.

Some of the most common forms of addiction are alcohol, drugs, gambling, sex, food, shopping, video games, internet, and work. All addictions increase in severity over time and can have harmful consequences unless they are treated.

LCC has significant experience in treating addiction and getting to the root of the problem, eventually building new, healthier coping strategies.
