We here at Mind-Ops are clinically trained in Substance Abuse Counseling and have personal experiences that greatly increase the credibility of our clinicians including having long-term sobriety. We understand the pain and anguish that come from excessive substance use… the loss of trust from others… the isolation and feelings of helplessness and desperation… the various losses of people, possessions, and employment… and even thoughts of suicide that sometimes accompany these circumstances. Your situation doesn’t have to get to that point; it can be halted with help from our trained clinicians. We here at Mind-Ops realize that 12-Step programs aren’t for everyone and as such we pull treatment techniques and protocols not only from 12-Step programs but also from Mindfulness-Based Therapies, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapies, Dialectical-Behavioral Therapies, Reality-Based Therapies, Spiritual Therapies, and General Talk-Therapy. Now is the best time to change your relationship to yourself. You have the power to do so and we can help you if you are willing to accept it. Schedule with us today and get on the road to recovery, the road to peace and happiness.
