Often people become addicted to drugs, alcohol, gambling, the internet, spending and/or sex to help them feel better or cope with life. These people sometimes do not recognize that they are trying to escape or "self-medicate" from their difficulties or their addiction is a symptom of depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, or ADHD for example. The first steps to successful treatment is admitting that you have an addiction problem and that you need help. It is not uncommon for me to see people who enter into therapy at the request of a loved one. Family or couples therapy may also be necessary to break the cycle of co-dependency.

Additions can often be understood as an effort to numb the pain resulting in one’s failure in their relationship with the self. Feeling unable to experience adequate levels of self-esteem can reflect difficulty in loving and caring for yourself or accepting love from others. Feeling vulnerable and exposed can reflect difficulties in feeling able to protect yourself resulting from difficulties with setting effective boundaries, while losing yourself in the face of other’s beliefs can reflect difficulties with identifying and sharing who you know yourself to be. These and other symptoms can lead you to seeking to numb yourself from the pain of feeling overwhelmed. Reconnect with yourself.

Addiction to any substance or behavior can have hugh consequences. Admitting that ones life is out of control is the first step to a successful recovery from any addiction. Learning new coping skills like mindfulness, emotional regulation, interpersonal effectiveness and distress tolerance will equip the client with life long skills that will allow them to live a more fulfilled life. Many times addicts are not running toward something they are running from something. Uncovering what that is might be another key to a solid recovery.

Addiction is more than a behavioral problem. Dysfunctional brain circuitry changes are associated with the disease of addiction, impacting all realms of life: physical, psychological, emotional, and social. In addition to medical care, counseling is critical for recovery, relapse prevention, and re-creation of personal balance. Counseling will assist in addressing the psychological and social factors associated with relapse. Recovery and balance must integrate effectively adapting to typical life stress, environmental or situational triggers, and social networks. Counseling can help with other problems that contribute to addiction such as family, work, depression, or grief.

Addictions often take over a persons life even though behaviors may have been manageable and less frequent at one point in time. We can use counseling sessions to identify why you are using the addictive behavior and how it is harmful in your life as keys to recovery and treatment. We can begin to find healthy alternatives for coping that result in much less stress and damage to your self and those around you. Addictions often take a tool on health, relationships, finances, and happiness and therapy can help restore that with the use of recovery-based treatment approaches.
