“How do I know if I have an addiction?”

This is an important question. Unfortunately, there is no simple laboratory test that you can have done to determine if you are experiencing symptoms of addiction. But you can ask yourself some questions. If some of the answers to these questions are yes, it can indicate that addiction is a possibility. If the answers to several of these questions are yes, it may be a strong possibility. If you are unsure contact me today for free confidential phone consultation or schedule your first appointment. I know it is a big step, but I am here for you and I understand!
