This is an area of treatment where I have seen many miracles. Successfully moving beyond substance dependence and abuse is not a matter of will power and character. Paradoxically, being strong willed and independent can work against recovery; addictions are very 'sticky' and five decades of research and experience confirms that attempting to keep them in check without help does not work. Twelve step programs (AA, NA, CA, etc) are the ‘gold standard’ of recovery, and are tried and true methods of achieving lasting abstinence. I possess a strong 12 Step program background, but know that not everybody can walk into a meeting and feel at home. Come for a consultation and see what is possible.

Overall, I treat addiction much like I would treat any other crisis. I would do addiction assessment to make sure I'm the right person to treat you. I'd identify triggers, what makes you more likely to repeat the addictive behavior. I can work with substance use and sex addiction. My general belief is that addiction is a way that people avoid dealing with other people and their problems. It can be a learned behavior. In order to stop doing the offensive behavior, it is important to focus on what you do want to do. This is the process of recovery, and I will do my best to facilitate this.

While most treatment approaches to addiction include 12 step programs, rehabs, and now sober living houses, Grey Matters International, Inc. provides a wildly successful alternative to traditional models of addiction treatment----that keeps the brain in mind. That is, talking to the conscious brain while the primal brain is deciding things even before you are consciously aware? Well, that is the problem to solve in addiction. We have the solution utilizing a new cutting edge neuroscience-centered brain rebalancing system. Contact email@example.com or call 877-606-6161.

What addiction are you struggling with? Alcohol, drugs, sex? It doesn't matter what form it takes, it matters what it is doing to your life. If it has gotten out of control, that your addiction seems to be running your life and narrowing your options, psychotherapy with me could be the help you need. If you could fix it by thinking and figuring it out, you would have done that by now. So why not call me and set up a time to meet?

Addiction issues are wide and varied. Be it alcohol or drug abuse, gambling, food, sexualizing or the internet, substance and situational addictions can consume our lives. Part of the difficulty is understanding one's journey through the continuum of addiction...trying to understand where that shift materialized from indulgence to over-indulgence to true addiction. Besides a behavioral approach we need to understand why we entered this cycle of dependency. Once we begin to take our lives back we are on the road to independence and self regard, the two best weapons that protect us from returning to our addictive cycle.

Have you been struggling with one or more substances like alcohol or drugs? Do you feel like the substance is in control rather than you? Perhaps you have an activity interest that has taken over your life, like shopping, gambling, or pornography. Maybe you’re a workaholic. If you’re truly happy in that pursuit and don’t care how it affects your health or your loved ones, you may not need my help. If, on the other hand, your addiction has become a compulsion which is causing you significant interpersonal, family,or personal grief, I can help you conquer it. I’ve been doing so with others like you for over 25 years and almost all patients have referred a loved one or friend for my help.

Twelve-step programs are extraordinarily helpful. They help addicts to understand their addictive behaviors and to develop long-term coping strategies. For over twenty years, in conjunction with Twelve-step programs, I have helped addicts to understand and work through the deep emotional feelings they experience in the recovery process. I work with both gay and straight people. Please visit my website lhorowitz.com for more information.

When you realize that the behavior that you are engaging in is no longer something that is working for you, then therapy can provide you with the safety and non-judgmental support to explore alternatives to that behavior. As a clinician with over 25 years of experience I can provide you with the confidence and understanding necessary for you to begin to make the changes in behavior that you seek.

Addiction can be scary. It can make us feel out of control. It can threaten our relationships and interfere with our work. When it does, we can become anxious, ashamed, angry, and guilt ridden. Feeling this way can make addictive behaviors even more likely-- an endless cycle. There are effective treatments to help you break this cycle. Please call us and let us help you learn more about how you can take control of your addiction, change these negative feelings, and regain your life. Guilt, anxiety, anger, and addiction don't have to be a part of your life any longer. Let us know if we can help you begin to lead the life you want.

Helping you find wholeness...
124 East 40th Street, Ste 404, New York, New York 10016
The present focus of my practice is not on addictions, although that is part of my training and previous emphases (including dual diagnoses) and I maintain currency as a licensed clinical addictions counselor. If you are seeking individual treatment for addictions (especially if connected to other issues), I would welcome talking about this with you to help determine if I would be the right person for you to work with. My general approach is from a systems approach combined with pastoral counseling. Assistance can also be offered for those who are seeking to deepen the spiritual dimension of their recovery. I look forward to your journey to wholeness and peace.
