I am not an addictions counselor, per se, but I am amazed how many people with addiction problems I've been able to help over the years. Why? People get into addiction problems because they are trying to meet legitimate needs in an illegitimate way. What are those legitimate needs? For most with addiction problems our relationships are hurting and we use our addiction to escape that hurt. What if we actually healed in our relationships? As people's relationships improve, their dependency on their addiction lessens. Maybe this time we can actually lick this addiction once and for all! I'm the relationship guy. I help relationships thrive. Let me help you with yours.
