Help for older adults and their families with concerns about alcohol and/or other drugs
Age-related difficulties such as coping with retirement, declining health, the loss of a loved one, depression, or simply feeling lonely are common problems that many older adults experience. Sometimes these struggles can lead to increased use of alcohol or other drugs. At the Older Adult Recovery Center (OARC), we specialize in helping older adults who may be concerned about their use of alcohol, addictive medications, or other drugs.
Heavy use of alcohol or addictive pills can start anytime in life, including our later years, and can lead to personality and mood changes, family problems, and health concerns. Sometimes heavy use can lead to dependency, which can be particularly devastating for older adults who are more fragile and less tolerant of these chemicals. For older adults, getting help can often make a big difference for themselves and their families.
