Although substance abuse issues are primarily recognized as addictions, I am aware of the many other forms of addiction, such as gambling, sex, and internet. My philosophy is that any form of addiciton is simply a way for the individual to cope with their stressors. I would encourage the use of positive coping techniques; I would not be judgmental in any way. I believe that seeking assistance is a show of strength.

Doing something despite its harmful effects on you is addiction. Craving or having a strong desire to do this behavior (when you try not to) is called withdrawal. You know if this describes your relationship to a substance (drugs, alcohol, food), or an activity (sex, gambling, internet). You can't hide behind so-called denial. You know. You fact that you searched for the word "addiction" (that's how you found me), tells you that you know. If you are searching because you have a friend or love one that you suspect has a problem, you have a choice to make. Will you hide your suspicions or will you tell them to get some help? I know addictions. Whatever your reason for reading this, I can help you decide what you want to do.

12 step programs are great - for some people. Whether you're 'working a program' or not I will help you understand and overcome your addictive behaviors, whatever they might be. I believe that reducing the amount of harm caused by addiction is a worthy goal in and of itself, so I don't expect you to be 'cured' of your addictive behaviors when you come to me for counseling. My mission is to meet you wherever you are in your process - as long as you have a desire to reduce your risk and improve the quality of your life.

I have worked wirh hundreds of substance abusers in the past, and I work with people who are abstinent and involved in a program such as AA or NA. Many times the substance abusers have an underlying psychiatric disorder and may be "self medicating" and I will make appropriate referrals for medication.All of the substance abusers that I have worked with have an underlying trauma or depression or unresolved grief.

Addiction is a catch-all term for a complex behavioral disorder. The most obvious symptom is that addicts reach a point where they cannot control their own actions. Even when they can see the harm, they continue the compulsive behavior. The inability to stop, more than any other attribute, marks addiction. For this reason, addiction was first described as a failure of will power. We now know this is incorrect. Addiction is a real disease with psychological, genetic, and psychosocial aspects. It is not a character flaw or a failure of morality. There are actual changes that occur in the brains of addicts and treatments for addiction must address the biology behind the behavior. Some of the sympt....

Dene Stamas, MA, LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

Within Driving Distance of Melrose Park, IL

I have been treating people with addictions since 1972. I start with the first session to identify what are the issues and to determine if detox is necessary and if an inpatient program would be beneficial. Generally if the person doesn't need inpatient treatment, I will see them on an outpatient basis twice a week. I will take a drinking/drug history and help identify what the course of action would be. I will also will talk with any significant person which may help in this person's recovery. I do offer interventions for the family to help the addict seriously look at their addiction and possible treatment strategies.

Who are you and who do you want to be? Accepting that addiction is real is the first step, deciding to make a change is the next. Addiction is not a simple thing but after working at Gateway Foundation for several years I can help you to determine the next steps to becoming a person who has an awareness of what triggers you to use, how to deal with that trigger in other ways, how to calm yourself, deal with relationships and the world around you from a strengths-based perspective and gain the self-respect and energy you need to make a fresh start. Often guided imagery, music and art can be helpful in finding self-compassion.
