Addiction is a mental health condition and I treat addiction by a multi-pronged process predominately from a Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) model. I help my clients understand the reasons they use a substance or engage in an addictive behavior, teach them skills regulate their emotions and tolerance distress that might otherwise lead them to engage in their addiction, and address any underlying issues that contribute to their addiction. I also help clients with with concerns about their substance use or compulsive behavior to avoid developing addictions.

Addiction is a debilitating condition that typically interferes with everyday function. In theory, anything pleasurable can be addictive. Examples include drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, sex, gambling, gaming, etc. Addiction takes place when you build tolerance to the effects of a pleasurable activity. In turn, you will have to increase the amount used to achieve the same effect, but then weaning off becomes increasingly difficult, and hence, you are said to be addicted.
