Addictions have a life of their own. The brain and body become conditioned to require this substance or behavior in order to feel good. Breaking the habit is relatively easy. Maintaining "sobriety" is tougher. Most people can't keep away from their addition because they benefit from it in some very deep and beneficial way. We need to find a way to fulfill that deep need/benefit, even better than the habit behavior allows. We will also work on an improving your ability to a) tolerate stress, b) postpone gratification, and c) self-comfort in healthy ways.

Addiction Counselor

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

Addiction is a mental health condition and I treat addiction by a multi-pronged process predominately from a Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) model. I help my clients understand the reasons they use a substance or engage in an addictive behavior, teach them skills regulate their emotions and tolerance distress that might otherwise lead them to engage in their addiction, and address any underlying issues that contribute to their addiction. I also help clients with with concerns about their substance use or compulsive behavior to avoid developing addictions.

Are you worried that your teenager might be abusing drugs or alcohol? Does your adolescent seem naïve about the potential harm in using drugs or alcohol before the executive functioning part of their brain is fully developed (this doesn’t happen until mid-twenties)? Psychological and social factors are often powerful stimuli for drug and alcohol use. These factors can create ongoing, nearly irresistible urges to abuse drugs and alcohol. The real reasons for using often hide. I work with teenagers to uncover the real reasons they engage in destructive behavior. Once we put the RIGHT words to what is going on, more appropriate and healthier decisions regarding drugs and alcohol can prevail.
