Clients are helped to become consciously aware of how the addiction has taken control of their lives. Using their own abilities, the client develops coping skills to work through the realities of life without depending on alcohol or drugs. We explore the underlining emotions suppressed by alcohol or drugs. The client begins to regain control of their life.

Letting go of an addiction is hard work – but living with addiction isn't really living, is it? Our cravings and obsessions can run our lives. But how to take charge again? I believe that addiction serves an important purpose. In some way, it allows you to survive and cope with stressors, helps you to calm down, or wake up, or feel better, at least for awhile. We will work to understand the why of your addiction - what deep longing the addictive behavior is trying to fill so desperately, but unsuccessfully. You can learn healthier ways to comfort yourself, ways that bring you closer to people you love, instead of distancing them. You will take back the power to run your own life!!!
