"ASV programs and services provide an opportunity to any person impacted by addiction tp access affordable addiction treatment options. The core program is delivered in the persons home where they feel safe and their privacy is protected". - Jase Bowman
I speak with many people challenged by addiction to drugs and/or alcohol.
Nearly all of these people report the same phenomena to me, they can stop, they just can’t stay stopped.
When describing the process, or their experience of the cycle of addiction, many ASV clients describe numerous challenges relating to their use of substances. These challenges include legal pressure, mental health issues, physical health issues, isolation, disconnection from family and important others, disconnection from value and meaning, feelings of guilt, shame, frustration, and fear, along with an inability to contribute to life as a meaningful participant.
When you combine a significant event (rock bottom) with the above factors, my first conversation with people goes along the lines of them stating their overall willingness to do whatever it takes to achieve positive change and addiction recovery. The time to strike is now while the person is ready and willing. The ASV intake and assessment process is specifically developed to meet the needs of distressed and vulnerable individuals in a timely manner, providing information and support as required.
