    Helping Patients & Families Overcome Addiction Together

    When one person is suffering from addiction, the whole family suffers along with them. These families tend to have limited resources, leaving them unsure of where to turn or how to help their addicted loved one. At Sunspire Health Hilton Head, we firmly believe family therapy is a key part of addiction treatment. Family therapy can improve communication among family members and rebuild relationships. But those aren’t the only benefits.

Okay, the weeds are usually pretty ugly, but regardless of looks many pets take this opportunity to graze on this new found growth. This can be extremely dangerous as many spring time plants - including rhododendron and azaleas - are highly toxic to pets and can be fatal. If you are ever in doubt, please reference this comprehensive list of plants.

    Spring is here, and that likely means your family is about to be spending a lot of time outside on the soccer and baseball fields, at the park, and on the beach.  Spring brings beautiful weather, and with it, a variety of allergens.  In the south, tree pollen season is roughly February through May, with pollens from oak, cedar, and pecan trees being the worst allergy triggers. Over-the-counter (OTC) oral antihistamines are a popular choice for allergy sufferers.
