Sound familiar?

If you are in the middle of drug or alcohol abuse and this slippery slope idea describes you and your situation, now might be the perfect time to seek help. If you have a friend or loved one on a slippery slope, it might be a good time to have a discussion with them and let them know that help is available. Many times while in the middle of drug or alcohol abuse, the person knows they are on a slippery slope but has no idea how to get off of it.


The definition of “slippery slope” suggests that it is hard to stop or control the drug or alcohol abuse once it starts and that it just gets worse. This realization is the perfect time to reach out for help for yourself or a loved one. You may also be experiencing unintended consequences of drug abuse from being on the slippery slope too long. Admitting that you have a problem is a good place to start and to get the assistance you need.

If you or a loved one is struggling, please contact us at (337) 456-9111 anytime. We’re here to help.
