One is too many and a thousand is not enough... Addiction is our culture/society's way of dealing with the 'true desires of our hearts'. Stop beating yourself up, I am willing to bet that what started your addiction is not your fault. What matters now is us looking for the ways we can help you come into 'the fullness of life' that you are looking for!

My preferred method of working with addictions is to have clients become involved in a 12-step program in conjunction with receiving psychological services aimed at healing the emotional factors that drive the addiction. In the case of alcohol and drug use, attendance at a detox centre often needs to occur before significant progress can occur in therapy.

As devastating as an addiction may be, you can always overcome it. Accepting where you are in your own journey and committing to an intentional path towards health and well-being is all it takes to start your healing. Through the process of therapy, you will learn effective strategies that can empower you to change your detrimental addictive behaviours.

When addiction becomes a barrier to achieving your goals, it can be helpful to talk to someone to get yourself back on track. By working together on the thoughts, feelings, and behaviours that make addiction hard to shake, you stand a better chance than by going it alone. We will talk about the things you do want rather than spending too much time on the negative things you don't. Don't let addiction get in the way of your success.

I often find that people who get caught up in addictions are having problems with either anxiety or depression and the substance they have been addicted to is their way to "self medicate". In such cases its important to look beyond the addiction and consider how they will cope without the substance. If you rush to take away something that has been used as a "medication" you could leave a person worse off than before they quit.

I use a collaborative strength based approach to deal with the topic of addiction both individually and with couples or family counselling. Motivational interviewing techniques help to move forward in managing the addiction. Clients will gain a better understanding of how addiction impacts the various areas of their lives and learn to incorporate healthy strategies to fight the pull of addiction.
