NEWS & EVENTS
At Blue Rock, we want you to thrive. When you are struggling with addiction or compulsive behaviors, overall health can take a back seat. It is also important to find pro-social, healthy behaviors that will replace unhealthy compulsive behaviors.
LINKS TO A BETTER LIFE
- Although we offer services to address the different components to get you there, we are also offering some links for you to explore the components based on your interests.
- Since everyone is different, we have tried to include both research-based sites as well as sites that will help you get motivated to engage in activities and better health.
- Those who ultimately experienced life crises such as relationship problems, loss of a job, or arrest because of their sexual compulsivity later realized that their friends and extended family were still there to support them.
- Through strong mental health, physical wellbeing, and social support Blue Rock will guide each client into a healthy integrated life.
