I work very well with drug and alcohol addicted individuals. I am in favor of inpatient only to stablize the individual so that they are better able to be receptive to treatment. The more an individual is "medicated" the less the treatment is successful. People act our their hurt and addiction is one avenue that offers an immediate "numbness" to their internal pain. Understanding what they choose to not address is key to their ongoing recovery. They need to stay sober and gain better control over the unresolved "past issues" that create the need for escape. Gaining control over the hurt and helplessness of the past, as well as valuing the self creates a remarkable recovery.

In my work with clients battling addictions I work to help them discover the root causes for their addictive behaviors and find new ways to resolve them. We work collaboratively with their support system to create healthy lifestyle habits and associations, resolve old recurrent pain, set new healthier boundaries in their work and personal relationships, and find new meaning for their lives. When there are setbacks, my clients learn to explore them in a non-judgmental environment designed to help them move forward toward the sober, healthy life and relationships they are seeking.

In this generation, the growth of individuals with addictions is very significant. Addictions originally were isolated to alcohol and drugs. Today’s addictions are understood to also include, food, sex, money, gambling, video, internet, internet games, internet chatrooms, internet pornography and other types of prolonged, repeated and out of control behaviors and actions.

I work with people in all stages of recovery from drugs, alcohol as well as sex addiction. It is common for many people to turn to drugs and/or alcohol as a way to cope with difficult life problems.
