Addictions are not problems, they are bad solutions. We always need to find the underlying problems and find effective solutions for them before we can let go of the stop-gap solution - whether the addiction is to a substance, a person, or an activity such as sex or gambling. There is always fear and pain underlying the addiction. We must learn to accept these feelings in order to free ourselves.

Addictions are created by things that make us feel better. I gets completed because some things we get addicted to change our brains and now we need that thing just to feel normal. The problem is that addictions tie us down and inhibit the ability to connect to the pain the made the addiction seem like a viable option in the first place. Reconnecting with this heals and frees us from the addiction. Visit my website at www.prairieowlpsychology.ca from more details. I have successfully worked with people from a variety of backgrounds to treat a variety of addiction issues and look forward to working with you.

Often, an individual's relationship with substance use such as drugs alcohol or will change over time. For example, the person might’ve initially used it only once a while in a month as to get away from his/ her stress and have some pleasurable time, but very soon it become an everyday necessity for the user. Did your relationship with your substance use change from the time that you started to now? Do you still use for the same reasons, or have those reasons changed? Have you done the bad things under the influence of substances that you wouldn’t have done if you haven't consumed? Feel free to contact to learn how counseling can help you.

There are many kinds of addictions that a client may seek counselling for. Addictions hurt everyone and the person affected may be in total denial. Addictions occur in 2 forms, behavioral and physical. When addicted clients seek treatment they will experience increased self-esteem as they find success in reducing or eliminating addictive behaviors.

Facing the causes and consequences of alcoholism/addiction isn’t easy; in fact, therapy will test your motivation to stay sober. I consider alcoholism/addiction therapy to be a collaborative process that focuses on encouraging the client’s sense of internal motivation; teaching the client how to identify destructive behaviors and replace them with positive, self-affirming actions; educating clients on relapse prevention strategies; and strengthening relationships through partners or family counseling.

Addictions leave people with much shame and feeling out of control. Often addictions are a result of underlying anxiety that people are trying to self medicate. When we learn to deal with fear, worry, and self doubt change can happen. Often people have never learned how to deal with their insecurities or talked about their internal struggles. This leaves people feeling isolated which feeds shame. Reaching out to others is the first step in untangling yourself from the grip of addiction.

Historically, addiction has been viewed as either a medical disease or a moral failing. I use a trauma informed approach that represents a more current view of addictions. The idea is that whatever the addiction (substances, gambling, sex, food, shopping, etc), the addiction is something that makes us feel better. Or to put it another way, when we feel bad we do something to make us feel better. With this in mind, treating an addiction is less about "curing" the addiction, rather it is about finding out why we feel bad and more positive ways to feel better. An addiction isn't a moral failing, it is an attempt to feel better. I'd like to help you find healthier ways to feel better.
