FORT WORTH, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 05/07/13 -- Today, millions of Americans are struggling with addiction to alcohol, illicit and prescription drugs and other process addictions such as food, sex and gambling. The new website, Addiction Hope, helps those struggling with addiction find reliable information on hope, healing and recovery. Extensive information including resources, articles, recovery tools and treatment options are provided for those in need, their families, friends and treatment providers.
Jacquelyn Ekern LPC, the site's originator, also founded Eating Disorder Hope in 2005, which has served as a trusted resource for those struggling with eating disorders and related issues, as well as their families, friends and treatment providers. In 2012, Eating Disorder Hope was voted one of the 18 best eating disorders blogs on the web.
"I decided to launch Addiction Hope after experiencing many years of inquiries for addiction help by visitors to the sister site, Eating Disorder Hope," said Ekern. "Many individuals that visited our site were also struggling with a co-occurring disorder including addiction to alcohol, drugs and other process addictions such as food, gambling, sex, and shopping."
Addiction Hope's goal is to end addictive behavior, help those suffering develop healthier coping skills and live a value-driven life of health and well-being.
"We believe recovery is possible for those willing to engage in the profound physical, emotional and spiritual work necessary to give up the addiction and forge a new way of living," adds Ekern.
Ekern believes in holistic recovery that addresses all the destructive patterns of behaviors engaged in by the individual with an addiction. She recognized it would be helpful to have a website that deals foremost with addiction for those that suffer with addiction as a primary concern.
Addiction Hope also includes resources, recovery tools and articles on alcoholism, drug addiction, prescription drug abuse, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), trauma, mood disorders and eating disorders.
