I'm guessing you've landed on this website for one of two reasons.
1. You're trying to get your drug or alcohol use under control, or
2. You're trying to find a way to help someone else get their drug or alcohol use under control.
Either way, drugs or alcohol (or some other compulsive behavior) are causing way too many problems for you and your family! It's consuming your thoughts and interfering with your life, your family, and most of your happiness.
You're generally a good person, who works hard, values your relationships, and you have historically been a fairly responsible person, but somewhere along the way, things have taken a turn for the worse.
Drugs or alcohol might not be causing problems every day, but on occasion the "you know what" hits the fan!
Afterward, you find yourself stuck in the same old arguments, making promises (or threats) that you mean at the time, but ultimately don't stick.
You're beyond frustrated.
You're sick of arguing about it.
You just want out of this trap!
You've tried to conquer the issue by yourself, and sure, you've had some success but nothing long term.
The problem just keeps coming back and it seems to be getting worse. If it weren't for this one issue, life would actually be pretty good.
You'd be able to focus on more important issues like the people closest to you, your life, and your future. Which is why you've decided things have to change!
Maybe you happened across this site because Google sent you here, but most likely you found us because you've been watching our videos or because you were referred by someone you trust. You've heard Hope For Families is the best when it comes to helping people (and their families) struggling with drug or alcohol problems.

Counselors spend time examining the past, looking for solutions to emotional concerns, and seeking a diagnosis required by insurance companies.
Coaches help clients work on their goals for the future and create a new life path.
Consultants are experts who are called on for professional or technical advice or opinions.
There is some overlap for sure.
You might be wondering, which type of service you need.
If you're looking for some quick expert advice about your situation, I suggest scheduling a consultation session.
If you're looking for strategic help on a more regular basis, I suggest coaching.
If you're looking to really dig deep into your past because you want to uncover underlying problems, then counseling may be what you're looking for. Hope For Families still offers counseling services, but only for local (South Carolina) clients.
Due to licensure restrictions, we don't offer counseling for anyone who lives outside of South Carolina.
However, we have several online programs designed to help you no matter where you live! We also offer 1:1 virtual consultations and coaching.
Hope For Families does not file insurance.
If you receive counseling services with us (in-state clients only) we can provide you with a coded receipt that you can turn in to your insurance company to get reimbursement if your insurance allows for out-of-network coverage.
Insurance does not cover coaching or consultation sessions.
People generally know Hope For Families as being the place to go for any type of substance abuse problem, but that's not all we do.
But, we untangle all types of complex family dynamics.
For example, we often see parents and teens who feel like they're stuck in a never-ending argument (even if it's not about drugs or alcohol). And, we help couples resolve long-standing issues that are threatening the relationship.
Basically, we help people who are locked in counterproductive patterns of thinking, behaving, or relating?
All that being said, we don't take on every case. We are committed to only taking on individuals and families we feel are the exact right fit for us. We're typically not the right place for minor issues, or for someone who just wants to think things through. We are the place to go when you've already tried other things, and you really need to break out of a dysfunctional pattern.
