People who experience addiction deserve to be treated with respect and compassion! This can be difficult in the face of many of the things that the addict can do while in active addiction, and the many problems that result. Recovery from addiction is not a solo process, it requires a supportive environment including a trusted ally, family, and community support.

I see any addictive behavior as a faulty coping strategy. People try all sorts of things in attempt to make themselves feel more comfortable, less anxious, or happier. We are all doing the best we can with what we have available to us at the time, and sometimes our "best" doesn't really help. In fact, it often causes harm to ourselves and others. I help clients understand the root causes of their addictive behavior, and how to meet their needs on a deeper level in healthy ways rather than destructive ways.

I have co-run an addiction program serving people with alcohol and drug problems. I have often found that people are self medicating when they are using drugs, covering other problems such as anxiety or depression. In these cases both the addiction and underlying problems need to be addressed. I specialize in relapse prevention. Living one day at a time is what we all need to be doing.

Addiction is problem of the brain itself, as much as it is a problem of the mind. Once one crosses the threshold from bad habit to addiction, the urge to satisfy that addiction often overtakes and supersedes all other concerns of the individual. My approach to treating addiction includes helping the individual work through the underlying problems that led to the addiction as well as teaching the individual how to manage and ultimately overcome the addictive behaviors.

You will be more successful at abstinence, and a healthier lifestyle, if we can teach you alternate ways to take care of yourself and feel good. Substance use must be replaced with something positive - and abstinence does not qualify as that. Thus, we work hard to help you discover ways in which you can attain greater serenity, fulfillment, and self appreciation, even as we work on eliminating the destructive patterns.
