Rick Bingham, BA, AADC, CAS, LCDC, Ordained Minister
Life can be complicated. It can be confusing. It can just wear a person out. Sometimes, just an objective listener is all we want, all we need. As a licensed counselor, an ordained minister, and what they call an acu-detox specialist, I can offer you a listening ear, an acupuncture treatment, and a balanced view of how to navigate this thing we call life.
If your experiences with religion have left you filled with guilt and shame, a more balanced and realistic view of spirituality may be helpful to you. I am supportive of abstinence, Moderation Management, S.O.S., S.M.A.R.T., MAT, & all other forms of harm reduction recovery.
The acupuncture, via a method called acu-detox, can increase sleep quality, decrease feelings of stress, enhance your immune system, & give you an over-all sense of well-being. If you are struggling with a craving for a substance, or being challenged with the uncomfortable feelings that occur after a detox, I can help you.
Many times, people say, "I sure wish I had done this earlier." Why wait any longer to feel better. I have never met anyone who wanted to feel bad, or feel hurt. Please take the time to get in touch and schedule an appointment. It may be time for you to feel some relief, to realize just how valuable you are, and always have been, and always will be.
