My approach to treating addiction incorporates aspects of motivational interviewing. The hardest part in breaking an addiction is acknowledging that you have an addiction and committing to rehabilitation. I differ from other rehabilitation programs like alcoholics anonymous, in that I believe that clients can practice selective sobriety, and that they should not replace their addiction with another addiction of group meetings.

Nancy D Young, Ph.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

I've worked in inpatient chemical dependency, researched the use of videotaped feedback in alcoholism treatment, & taught a university graduate course in Substance Disorders & Treatment. While active addiction is generally best treated inpatient, outpatient counseling can be an indispensable support both preparing for and after initial recovery, preferably in conjunction with a strong 12-step program, for relapse prevention and for learning a new concept of self and building the skills and tools needed for sober daily living, such as boredom-avoidance, assertiveness, and relationship building and maintenance.

Most often, nothing becomes an issue until it starts to interfere with your own level of functioning. Depending on the level of addiction, may depend on your level of treatment. Outpatient therapy is focused on those who are more stable within their addiction, and are wanting continued accountability and personal growth as their focus. Treatment may be more collaborative at this level (psychiatrist, physician, sponsor) to ensure that progress is continuing. Types of addiction treated in my practice: drug/alcohol use, food/exercise, shopping and co-dependency issues.

Addiction Counselor

Pamela Wilson, Psy.D., MFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist & Psychoanalyst

Within driving distance of Placentia

Addictions are ways people have learned to cope and regulate difficult and painful feelings. My approach is to teach you how to talk about and process the underlying emotions which fuel your addiction, and find alternative ways of coping. No matter what the addiction, it can distract you from important relationships in your life and keep you from being the person you know you can be.

Addiction Counselor

Hui Reccow, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

Addiction has many external forms (i.e. substance, alcohol, sex, gambling, shoplifting, etc.) and in looking at recovery for addiction, one needs to be able to: acknowledge the addiction, be open to a more balanced way of living, be honest with themselves, and be willing to make the appropriate choices to counter-act one's addictive behaviors. In recovery from addiction, it becomes the little things that build and grow into the big ones.

Addiction Counselor

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

I have many times worked in therapy with clients who struggle with addictions, among other issues. I have studied Motivational Interviewing, which is remarkably helpful in addictions work. Clients feel supported and not judged, and are able to find their internal motivations for change. Therapy with me can complement work in separate addiction treatment as well.

Addiction Counselor

Philip R Copeland, LISW, BCD

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of Placentia

I have a great deal of experience with working with person dealing with alcohol and drug addiction and abuse. My approach with these clients I am firm about the need for them to attend either AA or NA and work with the Big Book and the 12 step program. I have also used hypnotherapy and EMDR habit control approach. Working with underlying issues may be appropriate and we look at spouses and family members who may be enabling the person’s addiction. I encourage spouses of persons addicted to attend Alanon and for teen aged children of the addicted person to attend Alateen. If a person is not progressing witht the above interventions, I next would recommend an Intense Out patient Pr

Addiction Counselor

Marijane Ward, Ph.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Placentia

Addictions are a complicated area of work. Often the specific addiction is a symptom for much deeper discontent and shame. Along with the physical body addiction, many times the psycho-emotional issues have been present for a long time. Gaining insight and understanding to these usually very early aspects of oneself can be a useful life long tool in recovery and maintaining that recovery.

Are you preoccupied with the addictive or dysfunctional behavior of a close friend or loved one? Do you worry about controlling his or her behavior? Do you feel compelled to solve his or her problems? Are you always anticipating his or her needs? I would like to help. Recovery from codependency is possible. When you place another person’s health, love and safety before your own, your own needs and desires can become hidden, lost and forgotten. I would like to help you re-connect to yourself and build healthy and intimate relationships.
