Substance Use & Behavioral Recovery Therapy

Harmful behaviors can take various forms and, when uncontrolled, may significantly impact your ability to function in daily life. Engaging in harmful behavior such as misusing legal or illegal substances, uncontrolled gambling, or other unhealthy habits can distort your thinking and decision-making processes, leading to a detachment from your previous way of life. What might seem like a “new normal”, in fact, becomes far from normal.

If you’ve lost interest in activities that once brought you joy, experience strained relationships, push away family and friends who care about you, or find yourself overspending, these could be signs of harmful behavior.

Tri-Star Counseling is dedicated to helping you break free from harmful behavior cycles through positive support and therapeutic treatment. Our goal is to guide you towards a healthier, more fulfilling life and a brighter future. If you recognize these signs, seek the assistance you need now to initiate positive change.
