Addictive behaviours take shape in many aspects of our lives. Often we associate addictions with drugs and alcohol, however, many other activities can be viewed as addictive in nature. These activities include addictions to computer games, golfing and sports, hunting, gambling, sex, yard-work, exercising, etc. Addictive behaviours affect our lives and the lives of our friends, spouse, partner, children and our work peers.
Our counselling sessions will assist you with analyzing the behaviours of concern, identifying the reasons for these behaviours, then creating and implementing techniques and stratgies that will decrease the addictive behaviours and replace them with appropriate activities

Our addiction clinicians have varied and extensive experience in the area of alcohol and addictions. Not only are they versed in the nature and cycle of addiction, they recognize that addiction often starts as a way of distracting from pain, trauma, depression and anxiety. They seek to heal the underlying causes of addiction, the triggers and use scientifically validated methods of treating those causes. They seek to empower their clients by assisting them in developing more adaptive tools to deal with those triggers.
