Addiction Care & Recovery

Alcohol and Drug Addiction Treatment in Sarasota, FL

Alcohol and drug addiction treatment is something that’s becoming increasingly visible within our community, shining a light on the importance of being able to understand, pinpoint and treat substance abuse. Addiction, also called substance use disorder, is a chronic disease known to affect the brain and behavior. People with addiction crave and compulsively seek out drugs, alcohol, and other substances or behaviors despite the risk of damaging relationships, losing jobs, or causing legal problems.

At Solstice Health & Wellness, our team is dedicated to helping those struggling with addiction to alcohol, drugs, and other addictive disorders lead healthier, richer lives.

We know how difficult it is to struggle with alcohol and drug addiction. In fact, according to the surgeon general, nearly 21 million Americans struggle with a substance use disorder, which means that about 1 in 7 American adults will deal with an addiction during their lifetime. If you are struggling with an addiction to alcohol, cocaine, heroin, prescription opioids, nicotine, cannabis, or other substance, know that we are here to help. Ask yourself: Is addiction affecting your personal, social, and professional life?
