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.

Addictions are hard to accept. Is it a problem? Is it manageable? Hard questions and hard answers. I encourage you to not face it alone. Ultimately, an addiction has to be replaced by relationship, a connection to something bigger and better. If a substance (or a behavior) is starting to take more than it gives, options for recovery are not as scary as you might think.

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.
