Everyone is addicted to something because everyone experiences pain and has to find a way to soothe that pain. However, sometimes the solution to our pain becomes more painful than the pain itself. That is when the spiral of addiction begins and the need for outside help begins. The journey to sobriety is not just about self-control. It is about challenging the pain in your life and healing that pain so that your drug of choice is no longer needed. Once that happens, we will put in place the necessary support to keep the chains of addiction from enslaving you again.

We can easily become mastered by many things. when this mastery becomes habitual, repetitious and difficult if not impossible to control...regardless of the consequences...then we may have an addiction problem. Addiction treatment may be difficult but it can be very successful and rewarding. Through individual work, education and support you can be free of what has you bound.

Steve Brownrigg has developed his unique and truly "evidence based" approach to the treatment of Addictions and Substance Use Disorders. It involves guided, deep assessment of what clients have been trying to gain through the use of substances, and then devising replacement strategies that work better in their lives. Steve also encourages and facilitates 12-Step involvement to enhance the learning process. Treatment also involves learning new coping skills, creating new behaviors and adding supportive relationships in their lives. If necessary, Trauma Resolution is a frequent last phase of therapy. Unresolved Trauma is a frequent cause of repeated failure to maintain quality recovery.

Many people experience difficulty controlling their sexual impulses or compulsions, to a point that enjoyable and normal healthy behaviors become excessive, recurring, out of control, intense and distressing. Often these behaviors may interfere with their relationships, their careers or other parts of their lives and are often associated with anxiety, embarrassment, and shame. Compulsive sexual behavior can affect both men and women, and people of any sexual orientation. This behavior is marked by sexual impulses and/or compulsions that feel overwhelming and out of control, and often leads individuals to engage in risky and dangerous activities.

Addiction finds a foothold in our lives most easily when we are trying to avoid dealing with something difficult. It could be an avoidance of dealing with stress from work, an avoidance of processing a tragedy in our lives, or an avoidance of intimacy in relationships. In counseling, we can expect to talk about specific ways to deal with addiction, such as avoiding triggers, having a back-up plan, etc., and we can also expect to discuss what the role of this addiction is in your life, and what it is helping you to avoid. It is only through dealing with those difficult situations in life in a direct, healthy way that addiction can be replaced with something real.
