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.

Letting go of active addiction is the first step towards living a life based in reality and truth. The cessation of substances is not the end goal, having peace in one's life is. Coming to terms with the wreckage of addiction can be a daunting prospect. However, fully embracing the problems at hand and moving forward in sobriety towards a contentment never thought possible can be exhilarating process with the right help. Give yourself these opportunities and with a true commitment the problems of active addiction can be behind you one day at a time. My addiction services are personal and progressive not institutional as most services have become.

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.

The problems of addiction, anxiety, depression and low self-esteem are normal responses to painful life experiences. I combine traditional client-centered and gestalt therapy approaches with mindfulness meditation practices to help you recover from: addiction; PTSD; depression; trauma; anxiety; sexual, emotional and physical abuse; and low self-esteem. 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

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 firstname.lastname@example.org or call 877-606-6161.

Substance abuse and dependence can impact every aspect of person's life. A major issue with individuals who struggle with substance dependence is maintaining the motivation to change. I help people manage substance abuse issues by teaching relapse prevention skills and utilizing motivational enhancement techniques. I also teach clients how to manage substance abuse urges.

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.

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.

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.
