sm_480In a time when there is abundance of information available on just about every possible subject, we are committed to helping you find the information you can use to be healthy and successful. The one thing that we know for sure is that there are no two humans that are the same. Though, each of us have been uniquely created and have individual experiences, there has been research completed to give a range of what is normal or typical behavior. Deviation from this range of normalcy for a length of time can mean you are at-risk of unhealthy patterns which can lead to illness and lower quality of life. At kp counseling, we are committed to providing the information to help you know where you and your loved ones are at regarding normal tendencies versus at-risk tendencies. This site is intended to be a resource for a variety of topics: depression, anxiety, drug and alcohol, relationships, grief, and many others. It is to provide resources for all age ranges taking into account a variety cultural experiences.When one develops an abusive pattern of substance use and/or compulsive behavior begins to negatively impact balance within ones life, negative change is inevitable. Addiction is a primary, progressive, chronic, and destructive disorder. Damage is unavoidable in several areas: physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual. Getting “high” to feel euphoric is replaced by using to simply feel normal. Priorities in life will unintentionally invert. Using will demand more attention – ones thinking, behavior, and relationships will shift – and what was once important in life will now become less motivating.

A profile for both adolescents and adults will begin to unfold when this occurs. Below is a description of changes in the lives of adolescents and adults that emerge when substance abuse or addictive behavior becomes active in ones life.
