We are all addicts in some form or another. Yet whether it is to coffee, heroin, the internet, or food, addiction is always reaching for the wrong thing. The beloved object is only an attempt to fill a void that is calling for something else, and that's why it never quite satisfies us. Withdrawing the energy from the object is never easy, for it means suffering a lack of control. 12 step programs help because they provide not only structure, but human relationships. Psychotherapy is even more helpful for it not only provides those same things, but also helps one find what the addiction is a stand in for. This answer is always individual, and always both deeply personal and healing

Addiction and compulsive behaviors can make us feel powerless regardless of whether the problem is with drugs, alcohol, food, gambling, shopping or other problematic behaviors or substances. My approach to managing addiction and addictive compulsive behavior is to create a safe space to explore the problem, assess the impact in your life, provide information and create a plan appropriate to you and your individual needs.

I believe that overcoming addiction is one of the greatest personal challenges that there is. Often when I first meet with clients they express feelings of hopelessness and despair making it difficult for them to reach out. I provide a non-judgmental, confidential space to explore this. In working together we can identify triggers for addictive behaviours and how to manage this. My goal is to help clients understand their addictive process and provide them with the support and tools that they need to stay in recovery.

Addiction Counsellor

Sharolyn Sloat, PhD, CPBC #1666

Psychologist (Registered with CPBC)

In V9A 5S1 - Nearby to Metchosin.

Dr. Sloat treats addiction using non-12 Step methods (including CBT), and while she welcomes people struggling with any stage of addiction, she specializes in working with those who are post-rehabilitation. It is important to understand why one becomes addicted in the first place, and it's important to establish new and healthy patterns that edge out the addictive ones such that relapse is less likely. During treatment Dr. Sloat touches upon the actual addictions, but mostly she focuses on the underlying reasons and factors that perpetuate them. If left untreated, addiction becomes "hard-wired" in, and Dr. Sloat helps people "re-wire" their lives.

Living with an addiction can become second nature like breathing. It is not easy to disentangle from a destructive, ingrained habit that reduces your ability to engage in living life to the full. What will life look like without this addiction; what possibilities will open up for you? Together, we will envision what life could be like down to the last detail, and then take concrete, committed steps to move you in that direction. I will meet you where you are at every step of the way.

There are many forms of addiction, usually defined as the need to perform certain behaviours, even at the cost to relationships, finances and quality of life. These can be compulsive need to drink, take substances, sexual behaviours, violent behaviours, shopping, computer usage etc. I usually work with cognitive therapy to find the underlying need that the addiction is satisfying, look at the belief systems that keep the behaviour going, and work to replace the behaviour with new and healthier behaviours.

If you are struggling with an addiction or have starting to collect some clean or sober time, you may notice that you have a lot of feelings that hit you. In the past, you may have covered these feelings up with your drug or addictive behavior but now that you are clean, the feelings are sitting in you begging to be dealt with. I can help you face these feelings and thoughts head on. In doing so, you will learn to deal with your feelings without turning to your addictive behavior. The benefit here is the ability to feel the entire range of feelings from deep sadness and anger to genuine happiness.
