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

The duality of bipolar depression whenpajred with toxic substance alcohol or narcotic or niccotine and/or caffeine or caffeinad be verages is so detrimental to our growth as students, it causes a dead!y spiritual, and painfully tedious death. Christian thinking which reduces Frivolity and cuts the cost of psychotropic drugs by half eliminates the middleman, and is effective.. .

I like to work with clients, including adolescents, to help them on their journey to wellness as they overcome addictions. In addition to substance and alcohol addictions, I also like to work with clients who have addictions that are rooted in technology, such as addictions to video games, online chat rooms, video chatting, social media sites, and sexting.

The compulsion to repeat destructive habits brings shame, damages relationships, and controls our ability to live freely. It is possible to learn new coping, change habits and rewire your brain through a combination of personal work, hypnosis, and mindfulness. Freedom from self defeating and outdated coping habits is possible when you participate in a healing theraputic relationship. This is what I offer.

For some people addictions and compulsions are just a way to get rid of bad feelings. The problem is that the bad feelings always come back. Compulsive and addictive behaviors - like obsessive and compulsive disorder, gambling, sexual addictions, eating disorders, cutting, etc. - can work very much like alcohol and substance abuse. They are ways of controlling strong emotional reactions of anxiety, anger, sadness, loneliness or guilt. I use 90-minute and 3-HOUR SESSIONS to identify and fully resolve the roots of your emotional reactions so that they no longer trigger the urge to self-medicate.

Like most people, therapist have their own set of addictions, and I must admit, I would probably classify myself as a "coffee addict." However, when addictions interfere with life including work, employment, and close relationships, there may be something more that needs to be addressed such as family history or patterns of addiction via therapy. I work with clients to help them establish different lifestyle choices, and how one lifestyle change can bring about a healthy "domino" effect in other aspects of their life.

When a person is struggling with addiction, misusing alcohol or substances, they are not well mentally, physically, or spiritually. A person does not have to drink (or use) every day to have a problem. To begin recovery, one must first admit there is a problem, and then be willing to make changes and accept help. People CAN and do recover and improve their lives if recovery is made their number one priority....when it comes to sobriety, "half measures avail (us) nothing" - or at least not enough to fully recover. My addiction treatment approach is Integrative: this means that along w/ individual therapy, we integrate other therapeutic healing modalities and supports for an optimal outcome.

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.

My work with addictions is a highly compassionate approach, exploring with the client what the stressors or conditions have been which has led to addictive behaviors. These behaviors often affect the entire family. Getting to know the various aspects, thoughts and feelings of the client which are being affected by addiction can lead to healing and a restoration of health and balance.

I began my career in the treatment of alcohol and drug addiction, and believe that addictions primarily express difficulties people have in tolerating strong emotions. This is a fundamental issue, and the use of substances often masks it and instead becomes the primary focus of living. I will help you to explore how your "love affair" with your substance of choice brings you anxiety relief in the short term and defeats your interest and ability to grow and develop in the long term. We will also discuss the value of 12 step programs. Learn more about my practice at www.ThriveTherapydoc.com.

Addiction is the symptom of a bigger problem. What is the bigger problem that leads one to the addiction? That is where therapy comes in. Addiction is complicated but it is what lead you there that is really the problem and is really what the person needs to work on to grow and change into a better person. I have seen people struggle with this over and over. When you can really look at what keeps a person stuck in addiction, and change that piece with them, is when you see success!

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.
