Addictions are commonly viewed as ways of self-soothing, that is, of incorporating a means of avoiding painful feelings. Essentially, patterned substance abuse or compulsive behaviours serve to meet this need in the short term, but are dysfunctional and damaging on the whole, becoming increasingly pervasive and difficult to change with time. Exploration of the feelings behind the addictive behaviour allows for greater understanding, ways to incorporate different routines to replace harmful patterns, and an opportunity to feel what needs to be felt in a safe and non-judgmental environment.

Seeking help for addiction is a huge undertaking. Often we fear the consequences of seeking help. What if our employer finds out, what about our families, friends, loved ones? As a psychologist I protect confidentiality, and seek to help you sort your concerns through compassion without stigma or judgment. I will move towards change at your pace, safety seeking to minimize the harm of substances and behaviors through a harm reduction approach as you seek to organize, make sense, and move towards increased wellness. This wellness might look different from what others might tell you, but together we can help identify what health and wellness will mean for you and being taking the first steps.

Addictions are hard but not hopeless. I my self battled with my own addictions. Along with education I also have understanding at a deeper level due to my personal experience. The substance that you are addicted to is not so much the issue as is the feelings, thoughts, experiences and behaviours. Processing ones story within therapy allows a person to step one foot closer to freedom and hope in a better life. It is a risk to reach out and be vulnerable. The key is to keep picking oneself back up and keep trying.I look forward to hearing your story and journeying with you as you process it.

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.

If you are caught in the chains of addiction and find yourself unable to break free, I can help you. I want to give you the power to walk down the path of recovery and to mend the damage that addiction has created in your life. In therapy we will invest the time and energy to discover what has led to addiction for you, and use proven methods to resolve the sources of addiction.

Dealing with addiction issues starts with an understanding of the purpose the addiction serves in one's life. Simply trying to stop the addictive behaviour will not address or alleviate the root cause of the issue. New, more problematic behaviours will likely result just develop. In order to deal with addictions, healthier options must be recognized and embraced. And to be able to do that, we must first become comfortable with our own selves. We need to be able to be honest about what works and what does not work in our own life.

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.

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.

Equine Assisted Counselling can help clients focus on their health through their relationships with the horses and encourages them to seek out excitement in appropriate ways-- from working with horses. When treating addictions success is often strongly related to the presence of a strong attachment to a safe adult, the ability of that individual to take charge of their circumstances, and the belief of the addicted person that the treatment will be effective. These areas can all be addressed through counselling sessions with the horses.

Addictions come in many forms but are often a secondary issue to an underlying pain. This could be related to a childhood trauma or stem from feeling a lack of love or connection to others. It is important to explore what led us to that addiction and truly think about how we can shift our awareness of this to live an optimal life for ourselves and those around us. Figuring out our addiction is the first stop to achieving your goals and living a more fulfilled and happier life.

David Buhr, M.C.

Registered Psychologist

In T5L 1H7 - Nearby to Nisku.

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.

In T5R 3K2 - Nearby to Nisku.

I have been clean and sober nearly 26 years. I am familiar with 12-step approaches to treating addictions and compulsions, and sympathetic to those who find them uesful. There are, however, many who need help but cannot find it in 12 step programs. I am able to meet many of these where they are, and help them in ways they are able to use. Addiction and compulsions, like all conditions that respond to psychotherapy, are phenomena that are overcome through personal growth.

I have advanced training in the assessment of addictions. In order to have any success with addictions counselling there has to be some level of commitment to deal with the discomfort of giving up or at least reducing the addiction. Family and relationships are core to the success of the counselling. Addictions are powerful coping techniques that don't really work. Dealing with addictions means dealing with the pain and past hurts that have not healed or been properly dealt with. Any successful additions therapy means diving deeply into ones life and the beliefs one has developed over a whole lifetime. Connecting to a deeper spiritual set of values can be a tremendous help and support

When working with clients who have addictions, it is important to understand family history, underlying triggers, and enabling factors to better manage the disease. Addiction treatment with me generally includes psychoeducation, challenging negative thought patterns, coping skill development, and relapse prevention, planning. My goal is to help clients intellectualize their substance use and improve their methods of coping so they can finally regain control over their addictions and their lives. Once clients are able, we may also work on repairing their self-image and relationships with others as these can often be damaged by addictions.

An addiction is something that one reaches for (outside of themselves) on a regular basis to make themselves feel better. When the addiction results in unhealthy behavior that effects ourselves and those around us, it is time for help. One of the methods I use is the Cognitive Behavioral approach, which helps people to learn to think and feel differently in order to over come the need to reach out for something. As well Relapse Prevention and Family of Origin issues are topics often covered.
