Balancing Boundaries with Compassion

Why Traditional Parenting Methods Don't Work with Addiction

Doug R., New York
The knowledge we gained on how to deal with our son’s addiction during our meetings with Ginny was and remains irreplaceable. Ginny listened to us and helped us to communicate love, compassion and boundaries with our son. She made sure we took care of ourselves. She helped us reach the point where we were able to trust the process. Ginny is so professional, passionate, knowledgeable, calm and truly terrific. ”

Ginny helped save my family...

Ginny Mills Ginny Mills and her staff are extremely caring and helpful. They know what it is like to feel lost, scared, and not know where to turn for help for addiction. They look at each situation, what the immediate needs are, and develop a plan.... Ginny helped save my family and gave us hope again.”
