Addiction is a catch-all term for a complex behavioral disorder. The most obvious symptom is that addicts reach a point where they cannot control their own actions. Even when they can see the harm, they continue the compulsive behavior. The inability to stop, more than any other attribute, marks addiction. For this reason, addiction was first described as a failure of will power. We now know this is incorrect. Addiction is a real disease with psychological, genetic, and psychosocial aspects. It is not a character flaw or a failure of morality. There are actual changes that occur in the brains of addicts and treatments for addiction must address the biology behind the behavior. Some of the sympt....

Doing something despite its harmful effects on you is addiction. Craving or having a strong desire to do this behavior (when you try not to) is called withdrawal. You know if this describes your relationship to a substance (drugs, alcohol, food), or an activity (sex, gambling, internet). You can't hide behind so-called denial. You know. You fact that you searched for the word "addiction" (that's how you found me), tells you that you know. If you are searching because you have a friend or love one that you suspect has a problem, you have a choice to make. Will you hide your suspicions or will you tell them to get some help? I know addictions. Whatever your reason for reading this, I can help you decide what you want to do.

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.

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 Counselor

Sheldon Isenberg, LCSW, BCD

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Board Certified Diplomate

I primarily work with couples who come to me where one partner is in some form of addictions counseling or has completed hospitalization for an addiction. Some couples come after years of recovery or because of a relapse situation which endangers their relationship together. And some clients come to see me to avoid seeing a professional addictions counselor since I'm not. My experience is that if they are truly addicted they'll see such a professional on my recommendation after having counseled with me. I have a range of referral sources in the addictions community.

Although substance abuse issues are primarily recognized as addictions, I am aware of the many other forms of addiction, such as gambling, sex, and internet. My philosophy is that any form of addiciton is simply a way for the individual to cope with their stressors. I would encourage the use of positive coping techniques; I would not be judgmental in any way. I believe that seeking assistance is a show of strength.

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.

Do the chains of addiction leave you feeling lonely and depressed? If so - there's a reason - and there's hope. Addiction is a disease in the brain, and it can happen to anyone. I work with clients to understand and change the disease of addiction. Clients will learn to identify their underlying issues, emotions, and triggers through harm reduction and motivational counseling. You'll develop new coping skills , learn the art of mindfulness and develop alternative ways of handling their thoughts, feelings and emotions, without slipping back into addiction.
