Addiction is ruthless. And it can feel as though there's no way out of its relentless grip. Our team at Restoring Lives Counseling know that this doesn’t have to be the case. Many sources have said that “drug overdoses are now the leading cause of death among Americans under 50.” Ritchie Farrell of the Huffpost says, “4,367 Americans die every month from an accidental overdose of heroin. That’s right, 144 people will die today from an accidental overdose of opioids.”
And I don’t think any of us can deny the effect drugs have on our communities: poverty, homelessness, higher dependence on welfare, higher incarceration rates, productivity loss, medical costs, to name a few. Addiction can be deadly. But you don't have to be one of the ones who falls prey to its lies, seductions and deceptions.
Here at Restoring Lives Counseling we take addiction seriously. Personally, most of us know what it’s like to either be addicted or love someone who is. We want to help lower the number of addiction casualties Colorado faces everyday. Please don’t hesitate to ask/mention/discuss addiction with us. If we can’t help you, we will happily aide you in finding someone who can. Of course, some of us here at Restoring Lives Counseling are trained in addiction treatment, but if you need more intense, addiction treatment you can call one of the numbers below:
