Clients facing substance abuse issues benefit from a therapeutic relationship in which they feel truly heard and accepted. Trust is the foundation of any therapy but particularly in cases when clients’ addiction histories have caused them to become alienated from many of the people in their lives. It’s important to focus on their strengths, and to celebrate the small changes because as self esteem grows clients with addiction become more motivated, and empowered to take positive action. Understanding the effects of substance use on the reward system of the brain expands clients tool kit to decrease impulsivity, promote delayed gratification, and connect with values that drive positive change

Addiction can affect anyone and although it is a behavioural pattern which is often triggered because of the release of dopamine in the reward center of our brain. Addiction is used to describe behavior that is compulsive and obsessive. As a licensed drug and alchoho counsellor I have worked with youth and adults with alcohol and drug addiction, and also in some cases with their loved ones.

I use a type of therapy called EMDR for addiction. This stands for Eye Movement Desensitizing and Reprocessing. Originally used for PTSD, it is very effective against addictions. It is a short term therapy that can be extremely effective in very little time. We identify triggers or urges that emerge just before one uses and we reprocess them so they are no longer triggering!
