I have worked wirh hundreds of substance abusers in the past, and I work with people who are abstinent and involved in a program such as AA or NA. Many times the substance abusers have an underlying psychiatric disorder and may be "self medicating" and I will make appropriate referrals for medication.All of the substance abusers that I have worked with have an underlying trauma or depression or unresolved grief.

As a CADC (Certified Alcohol/Drug Counselor) I have experience working with clients dealing with substance abuse history, and focus on obtaining and maintaining sobriety, relapse prevention skills, as well as addressing underlying core issues and spiritual growth from a 12-step perspective, so that effective lifestyle changes are a part of the recovery process. I also work with family members, resentment and codependent traits, to assist the change process and healing in clients' family dynamics as well.

Making the decision to tackle an addiction (substances, sex, gambling, food) is one of the most difficult decisions any of us ever makes. I can help you to examine how your thinking and behavioral patterns may undermine your success in breaking free from an addictive habit and assist you in establishing new, more adaptive ways to work through your addiction. Families who are struggling with an addict are not only critical to the addict's recovery, but most often are behaving in ways that support the addiction. It is important for everyone in a family system to work together to honestly reflect on their role and begin to develop new coping mechanisms to be successful.

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.

Who are you and who do you want to be? Accepting that addiction is real is the first step, deciding to make a change is the next. Addiction is not a simple thing but after working at Gateway Foundation for several years I can help you to determine the next steps to becoming a person who has an awareness of what triggers you to use, how to deal with that trigger in other ways, how to calm yourself, deal with relationships and the world around you from a strengths-based perspective and gain the self-respect and energy you need to make a fresh start. Often guided imagery, music and art can be helpful in finding self-compassion.

I often observe what is called "the human magnet" syndrome...this is when an individual finds themselves in a pattern of being drawn to the same type of person over and over again. The magnetic pull may be to someone who is an addict, impulsive, abusive, neurotic or another destructive relational pattern. We call this pattern, or magnetic pull codependency. I have a soft spot for people who find themselves in this pattern. I also want to tell you that you can get yourself unstuck and unleashed! I would love to coach and counsel you on how to do that! Bringing your best self to the world is your most important lifework! Call me today so I can support you in that sacred journey.

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.

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.

Melissa Sanchez, LCPC, BC-DMT

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, Board Certified Dance/Movement Therapist

I have many years of experience helping those struggling from substance addictions learn the path of sobriety. My approach to addiction treatment is holistic, focusing on regenerating a person's relationship to their body, mind and soul. Without this focus on the entirety of the individual, success in recovery is often limited. I truly believe that addiction robs the human spirit of the ability to accurately think, feel and experience the true world. I work with each person to lift the veil and discover the emotional and psychological pain in need of kindness, discovery and healing in order to begin the life-long journey of sobriety.

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.

When we hear about addictions, substance abuse is generally the type of addition that comes to mind. However, addictions to sex, shopping, porn, internet, video games, work, exercise, and gambling are common examples. Addiction to any of these will have an impact on the way you live your life. My specialized training has been in the treatment of gambling. When I practiced in California, I was a certified provider through the California Problem Gambling Treatment Service Program, California Office of Problem Gambling. My initial training, plus follow up training and experience with individuals with gambling addictions, have helped to increase my effectiveness.
