The addicted person may not recognize the seriousness of their situation, but eventually both the addict and their loved ones suffer tremendously in a state of helplessness. Many families have been destroyed from addictive behaviour such as substance addiction (drugs/alcohol), gambling, sexual addictions, gaming/internet addictions. A counsellor can help.

I will help you to assess whether a substance or specific behaviour has become problematic. I will work with you to identify the stresses that lead you to the problematic behaviour and help you find healthier ways to address the stress. If together we decide that it would be to your advantage to seek a more specialized treatment program I will help you to find one.

For over 20 years I practiced as a clinical therapist in several addiction settings. Our agency will provide comprehensive addiction assessments, establish clinical goals and then develop individual treatment objectives. In some situations clients require a more intrusive treatment intervention such as residential treatment. Where this is required, we will facilitate these referrals. Our approach to addiction treatment is based on the stages of change model, motivational interviewing and cognitive behavioural therapy. We provide insight education and strategies for triggers and urges. Establishing relapse prevention strategies is a critical component to our addiction counselling model.
