Dependence on alcohol and drugs is our most serious national public health problem. It is prevalent among rich and poor, in all regions of the country, and all ethnic and social groups. Millions of Americans misuse or are dependent on alcohol or drugs. Most of them have families that suffer the consequences, often serious, of living with this illness.
If there is alcohol or drug dependence in your family, remember you are not alone. Most individuals who abuse alcohol and drugs have jobs and are productive members of society, creating a false hope in the family that, "It's not that bad."
The problem is that addiction tends to worsen over time, both hurting the addicted person and all the family members. It is especially damaging to young children and adolescents. People with this illness really may believe that they drink normally or that "everyone" takes drugs. These false beliefs are called denial; this denial is part of the illness.

“Coming into this program I was very skeptical. I thought how could some book, help me change the way I am. After first two weeks I really felt like I had started to change the way I looked at my life and my demons, both in the past and the present. This book honestly has brought out feelings and emotions I thought I had trapped forever. Following the steps has not only made me more honest but it has also helped me trust others. The counselor does a great job making people feel comfortable in a group environment. They don’t judge and I look up to them. The treatment programs can help anyone who wants to change.”
“I have really benefited from Northwest Recovery Centers, not only because the workbooks really make me think about my past behaviors and mindsets and the problems these have caused, but also the dynamic of the group is extremely supportive and helpful in facing the past problems and behaviors and encouraging positive changes in everyone’s lives”
“Over the past six months that I’ve been in the treatment programs at Northwest Recovery Centers, I have noticed an immensely positive change in my behavior. The treatment programs took me step by step, showing me how to be honest with others and most importantly myself. The counselors do a great job of leading the class and helping people when they really need it. I would always come in early to discuss issues I had with the step work and their door was always open. I’ve learned how to care about myself and I’ve gained tools to help me become a better person, the person I’ve always wanted to be. This program has taught me how to be sober and happy, even if I’ve messed up. We are all human and we make mistakes the treatment programs has shown me how to move forward and for that I am thankful.”
