I believe in a harm reduction model for addiction. I spent years in a clinic dealing with 50 clients, who were addicted to alcohol, opiates, cocaine, crack, and various prescription medications. Clients and I collaborated in finding the motivation to change. Every addict has entertained the thought of quiting. What we do in session is engage you in "change talk" expand on it, and reinforce it. Once the motivation for change is there, learning more positive reactions to triggers can begin. We will deal with self-esteem issues and possible traumas that may have led to self-medication. 12-Step programs are effective in relapse provention. Remember, you are not alone.

The transition to young adulthood can be an intense time where teens may become overwhelmed by new feelings. Self-medication through drugs or alcohol is often an attempt by sensitive young people to regulate or avoid uncomfortable feelings. Since individuals who are at high risk of becoming addicted often feel emotionally disconnected from the people in their life, my work focuses on helping my clients create more meaningful connections with their family. I also work with young adults who have completed rehab and are interested in finishing the emotional growth process that got derailed while they were using drugs as a teenager.

Any addiction is an attempt to deal with feelings that are unmanageable. The alcoholic turns to alcohol to escape problems at home or at work. The gambler turns to gambling to avoid uncomfortable feelings. The sex addict turns to sex to numb him or herself from other feelings. "Self-medicating" through addiction works in the short turn but always has a price attached to it. Together we can discover the underlying issues surrounding your addiction and work towards a life free of compelling urges you may find difficult to resist. Dr. Gary has been featured numerous times on the Dr. Phil show discussing addition. Type in "Dr. Phil and Dr. Gary Stollman" on youtube and watch his numerous videos.

Getting stuck in the cycle of addiction is a devastating feeling! Finding yourself at a loss for what to do is even more discouraging. I believe that therapy is a solution to the unending cycle of addiction that you may find yourself in. It will help to discover the triggers and reason(s) for the substance use and abuse. Therapy will also help to identify positive and healthy means of coping - through therapy I believe that you will help to get your true self back.

I worked in both an adult inpatient and an adult outpatient substance abuse program as well as with family members. Working with individuals who have gone through detox or an inpatient/ residential program is optimal. The substance user interrupts him or herself from acting independently of the substance-person relationship. This reliance creates a dependency which can be scary and overwhelming once removed. Therapy is a safe place of support to develop and grow through experiences previously avoided. Another dimension are partners and family members who also can benefit from support specifically dealing with how they were impacted, how to respond as differences arise.
