Licensed Clinical Social Worker

I help my clients become aware of how they protect against their feelings. These are called addictions We can use anything as an addiction if our intention is to avoid our feelings or to use something to make us feel worthy. I can help you manage the loneliness, helplessness and heartbreak that you may be avoiding with your addictions. Once you know you can handle your feelings then you no longer have to protect against them and can let go of your addiction.

Using a Harm Reduction approach to treatment of addictions has proven to be an effective model for intervention with a wide range of substance and behavioral addictions. A Harm Reduction approach helps the addict formulate goals and structures behaviors around their attainment. Goals are set by the individual and treatment is supportive, collaborative, and goal-oriented.

The problems of addiction, anxiety, depression and low self-esteem are normal responses to painful life experiences.

I will help you integrate your spiritual beliefs into your recovery process so that you may tap into resources that are generally not incorporated within traditional psychotherapy. I will provide you with a fully accepting and non-judgmental environment that will give you the opportunity to identify, process and adaptively heal your emotiona

Jim Mastrich, Ed.D., L.C.A.D.C.

Psychologist, Clinical Alcohol & Drug Counselor

4475 Route 27, Kingston, New Jersey 08528

In order to recover from compulsive disorders or substance abuse and addiction, a person must stop their dysfunctional behavior. While recovery may be that simple, it is certainly not easy. Substance abuse is at least a psychological habit and may also be a physiological one as well. People often use and abuse substances in an attempt to address an internal disturbance or upset, and mask feelings of inadequacy or other issues. Nevertheless, with a commitment to the process of recovery, and a willingness to take an honest look at oneself, it is amazing the progress people can make. I take a very direct, but supportive approach in helping individuals to make their lives more manageable.

There are several effective approaches to addiction: The 12 Step, A.A. style, abstinence approach, as well as Harm Reduction and others. If you're reading this, you may suspect you have a problem. That's the first step. To take the next step, call me.

Walter Masterson, LCSW

Psychotherapy and Counseling

200 Rector Place, 23L, New York, New York 10280

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.

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.

We have the solution utilizing a new cutting edge neuroscience-centered brain rebalancing system. Contact or call 877-606-6161.

Saranya Tracey, M.A.

Psychotherapist, clinical, transformation depth psycholigy

Wall Twp, New Jersey 07719

Ms. Tracey's approach to addiction to alcohol, drugs, sex, unhealthy or even abusive relationships, etc., is to first get clean through rehab or AA meetings. Ms. Tracey then treats the underlying cause of addictions which usually have to do with some kind of hidden belief that you are not good enough. Unearthing root causes that lead to behaviors where you come to depend of any number of addictions will help you to eliminate self-destructive dependencies that numb your feelings but also make you feel as though you are not really living. Often you are operating from a false self that you are unaware of. Ms. helps you to live in the true self where happiness abides.

Licensed Professional Counselor

Addiction is an all consuming disease that effects all areas of your life, emotional, social, physical, relational, economic, legal and spiritual. The 12 step recovery programs are not always enough to reach sobriety as there are often underlying issues. By recovering from addictions you can get your life back, reconnect to broken relationships and gain health as well as healthy self esteem. In addition, therapy will provide tools for relapse prevention, stress management, life coping skills and relationship development.. You can live your life alcohol and drug free with serenity and health.

Gerald Schoenewolf, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychoanalyst

207 East 15th Street, New York, New York 10003

There are all kinds of addictions, from substance abuse to internet pornography. In each case, the bottom line is that a person is dealing with feelings of depression, anger or anxiety in a destructive way. They drink, gamble or look at pornography whenever they feel stress, but do not face the feelings that are causing the stress and work through them. I encourage addicts to make use of 12-step programs in combination with psychotherapy. When they stop denying and commit themselves to both, they quickly make progress.

Heidi Seifert, LCSW-R, MA

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

85 Fifth Avenue, New York, New York 10003

You went after work to hang out with friends. You had some drinks or you got high. Everything was fine in the beginning until you noticed that just stopping was no longer easy. I believe that people can reduce or completely stop. The choice is yours to make. There are consequences to working me; you may decide you don't need to be high or drunk to enjoy yourself.

Lois Horowitz, Ph.D, LCSW


London Terrace Gardens/ Chelsea/ West 23rd Street, New York, New York 10011

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 for more information.

Cathy Roberts, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

101 Park St, Montclair, New Jersey 07042

As a recovering person myself, I have a firsthand knowledge of the power of addiction and the joys of sobriety. I enjoy working with other people who have the courage to face their addiction, understand what is driving it and who are willing to commit to living a sober life. Living sober is a challenging task, and is best accomplished through education, exploration of triggers and alternative coping strategies, and the support of others who encourage your recovery.

Carolyn AlRoy, Psy.D.

Licensed Psychologist

19 West 34th St., Penthouse, New York, New York 10001

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.

Joan Warren, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

280 Madison Avenue Suite 208, New York City, New York 10016

Moshe Ratson, MBA, MS MFT, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

260 Madison Avenue #8023, New York, New York 10016

In time, what starts out as an innocent social activity becomes a habit and then gradually crosses over into a physiological and psychological addiction causing havoc in your life. Sobriety is not easy, but it is possible with right treatment and commitment. spiral2grow, located in New York City, has the professional staff that meets the clients where they are emotionally and at their stage of the healing process to lead them to transformation, freedom and inner peace.

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.
