You Can Place Your Addiction in Remission

When I was deeply addicted to drugs and alcohol, the endless cycle of reckless behavior, brief glimpses of hope, and despair when it all started again were all I could see.

Whatever addiction you or a loved one are fighting, I know what you’re suffering through, and I can help.

After successful recovery, I've helped countless addicts and their families move toward happier lives. Now, I use my gentle, invitational style Addiction Counseling Program and Interventions to ease addicts into recovery.

You didn’t land on this page by accident. There’s a new day waiting for you and your family, and I’m here to help you find it.

Dr. Joseph Kirkpatrick

Metro Atlanta Addiction Specialist

and Professional Interventionist

The first step is always the hardest, but you’re only a click away. Let’s reclaim your life together.

“My personal recovery journey began several decades ago when my family loved me enough to intervene on my addiction. To this day I see their actions as the kindest thing they could've done for me. Their efforts not only saved my life, but awakened a deep desire to help others end the addiction cycle for themselves and their families.”

–Joseph Kirkpatrick, PhD, LPC

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a licensed addiction specialist?

A licensed addiction specialist is a trained mental health professional, who helps people overcome their struggles with drugs and alcohol or their addictions to sex, pornography, or any other habit that is negatively impacting their lives.

Do I have to check into rehab?

Not necessarily. Addiction treatments look different for everyone. We’ll work together to create a personalized plan to get your life where you want it to be. That may involve some time in an addiction treatment center, or it may simply involve addiction counseling.

No! Millions of people have found new lives after addiction. I’ve helped addicts recover for decades, and I’m confident we can find a solution for you, even if you’ve struggled with your addiction for years.

What is the first step of drug addiction treatment?
