Learn all you need to know about drug and addiction counselling with this e-book.
Any addiction is of serious concern. No-one begins to take drugs or drink too much with the intention of becoming addicted or to develop serious health problems. But prolonged drug or alcohol use can have a serious impact upon a person’s health, both physically and psychologically. Addiction can undermine and even destroy interpersonal relationships and family networks. It can destroy careers and have a deleterious effect upon a person’s wealth. If a person becomes addicted to drugs and alcohol, then drug and addiction counselling is often required to help them overcome their addiction because the impulse to continue using is so strong.
This e-book will demonstrate ways of counselling for people who are drug and alcohol addicted. Weather it be yourself or someone you care about.
