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).

Addiction is a brain disease that requires treatment to offer the best results in achieving long term recovery. I have over 15 years of experience treating individuals and supporting their efforts in seeking and maintaining long term recovery. Addiction often co occurs with other mood and anxiety disorders and individuals can significantly benefit from ongoing therapy to support abstinence and recovery.
