Sanford House staff are trained to help you identify your strengths and create a personalized substance abuse treatment plan.

Learning how to identify when you or a loved one needs substance abuse help is the first step towards healing and a new life in recovery.
Symptoms of Alcoholism & Drug Addiction
If you use alcohol and/or drugs to cope with difficulties and avoid feeling bad, addiction can creep up on you. Not all drinkers or drug users become addicts, but as your tolerance increases, your risk is greater. It is important to examine the signs of alcoholism and signs of addiction.
Does Your Loved One Need Help?
Offering care, love and concern, without preaching, arguing, blaming or making a woman feel guilty are crucial aspects of learning how to give appropriate and healthy support. It is important not to expect the person to stop or cut down use without help as promises without assistance do not work. New coping skills are needed to overcome addiction, and the sooner the addiction is treated, the better.

My time at Sanford has served as the foundation for rebuilding the life I systematically destroyed during my active drinking. I am so thankful to the Sanford family for the new start you gave me...”
