Concerned about alcohol or drug use, and maybe abuse? Whether you are looking for yourself or a loved one there is help. Following are the signs and symptoms you should look for when drinking or using has gone from being a solution to a problem.  Cirque Lodge can help you find the resources for your treatment needs.


According to the American Psychiatric Association, people with addiction “have an intense focus on using a certain substance(s), such as alcohol or drugs, to the point that it takes over their life”.  The result is that career, family, and physical well-being suffer start to suffer.

Addiction does not discriminate.  According to a survey conducted in 2016 by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), 23.5 million Americans had a substance disorder in the past year.  In 2017 more Americans died from opiate overdoses than in the entire Vietnam War!

People wonder why the chaos and wreckage caused by addiction is not enough to compel one to stop using or drinking.  Unfortunately, pre-existing factors such as genetic traits and metal health illness, as well changes in brain chemistry through the use of alcohol and drugs make it nearly impossible for addicts to change their behavior without the help of trained professionals and their therapeutic interventions.

Addiction often begins as recreational experimentation, or an attempt to cope with a challenging situation.  In some, just a genetic predisposition to addiction combined with environmental exposure to alcohol or drugs leads to the vicious cycle of addiction.


The longer the problem is allowed to continue, the more deep-rooted it seems to become.  It’s important that an effective and complete treatment program is chosen.  Often, one type of treatment modality such as medication assisted therapy, or cognitive therapy is not enough to completely conquer our compulsions.  Cirque Lodge incorporates many different therapeutic modalities to fit each individual.

At Cirque Lodge, our dual- diagnostic treatment program includes:

In addtition to these methods of treatment, we also offer:
