Addiction is a broad based term. When I use it, I include alcohol, drugs, gambling, sex, food, and the internet. These addictions are all characterized by obsessions about use, compulsive acting out, and downward progression in the individuals's life. Treatment begins with the person seeing that they have a problem, which is not always easy. The next step is developing a plan to help the person stop the addiction. Much care has to be taken to address the issues of staying stopped. These include triggers and lifestyle changes. The addict also has to develop or re-engage with support systems. I help someone with all of these steps.

Addiction refers to a state of dependence that an individual can develop on a substance, such as nicotine or alcohol, or on a behavior, such as gambling in order to achieve a desired effect such as euphoria or sedation. The addicted individual usually grows to need more of a given substance or behavior to create the desired effect. This process is called “building tolerance”. The abuse of the substance or behavior leads to a deterioration in the individuals health and functioning. They rationalize their self-destructive behavior in order to justify continued addictive behavior. Capital Counseling treats problem and compulsive disorders using a unique fellowship model of treatment involving group and individual counseling
