The field of addiction treatment is ever changing and more and more studies are leaning toward the effectiveness of trauma-informed addictions treatment. If you have a sense that drugs and alcohol have served to help alleviate fear, loss, stress, and emotional pain in your life, then speaking with a trauma-informed therapist may offer you a new perspective regarding the potential for recovery. I've worked with individuals for years who had been in substance abuse treatment multiple times and reported a trauma-informed approach was the most effective treatment, most stating it was the first time they felt a sense they could truly understand the reasons behind their addiction and how to heal.

When you think about addiction you may look to the normal list of alcohol, drugs and gambling. I work with those who find a high from shopping. If you have items in your closet with the tags still attached, hide the items you purchase from loved ones, spend more time and money than you have on items that you do not need and have packages delievered numerous times of the week then you may have a shopping addiction. The other spectrum is that you may not spend all your time shopping but when you do shop, you spend more money than you intended. I have helped numerous client's learn how to be "normal" shoppers. I can help you too.

I work from a biopsychosocial model of addiction. I have clients who have benefited tremendously from a twelve step based abstinence model and those who have found other models that suited them better. I have had clients come into therapy to work on issues related to substance abuse, sexual addiction, co-dependency, eating disorders, compulsive self harm, shoplifting, and other process addictions. I use a trauma informed approach to help them develop a plan of action to decrease these addictive behaviors and learn to live a more mindful self aware lifestyle. Frequently, families cannot get the addicted loved one into treatment. I enjoy working with families to plan ways to intervene.

I do not do addition counseling. It is outside my area of expertise. But I will say that I often see someone is a couple who denies being an alcoholic despite reporting behavior that surely sounds like an addiction. The way I approach this is to ask him to "prove to me" that he or she is not addicted by not drinking for a full week (or two). If they can do this, then I conclude that we are not dealing with an addiction, but rather with something else.
