Alliance Counseling Center, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

1422 Main Street, Hellertown, Pennsylvania 18055

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!!!

Problems with mood altering chemicals (e.g., alcohol, heroin) or behaviors (e.g., gambling, sex) are still not well understood by scientists. Explanations for compulsive use which claim the cause is a disease or brain disorder lack supporting evidence. Counseling an individual with such problems requires taking into consideration a wide variety of contributing environmental, biological, psychological (e.g., mental health problems) factors. Treatment is typically tailored to the client and will usually involve addressing motivational factors, the client's goals, and educating the family on how they can exert a reinforcing and supportive role in the client's resolution of their problem(s).

Although not an addictions counselor, I help clients who struggle with others in their lives that struggle with an addiction. I often instruct clients on way to identify unhealthy vs. healthy boundaries in relating to their addicted loved one. I teach clients about codependency and specific techniques on handling the "traps" of being close to someone with an addiction. If help clients determine if they have an addiction and give them resources on best treatment options. Family therapy helps client families better relate to one another and deal with addiction in a more healthy way.

Addiction is way of escaping from life, escaping from yourself, escaping from pain. The addict is a slave to his or her addiction. Whatever the problem is you are escaping from gets worse and more complicated. Often the addict losses his/her sense of self and self esteem, relationships are damaged, and other losses occur. The addict tends to becomes self centered in their addiction and hurts people close to him/her. The addict may become less present with self & other. Recovery involves first & foremost getting sober and working to stay sober. It also means coming to terms with the pain that you are fleeing from and repairing the damage done. I work with drug, alcohol, sex and love addiction
