It’s quite common for patients to enter treatment with the belief that they can later resume occasional periods of substance use or that their problem with drugs or alcohol isn’t really as bad as others have made it out to be. Counselors at CommonHealth provide support for addicts both in crisis and in long-term recovery from addiction.

We realize a great deal of trust must be established between yourself and your counselor when you seek the services of any Kentucky counseling center.
