Many people use alcohol and drugs to self-medicate and cope with problems.  When the coping mechanism becomes part of the problem, it is time to make a change.  An individualized plan is needed to help each person succeed whether it is for abstinence or simply self-control in social situations.

I am also a U.S. Department of Transportation Substance Abuse Professional who can work with commercial transportation workers who are federally mandated to seek treatment for substance use.
