An addict once told me it's not quitting the drugs that is hard it's staying off the drugs that's hard. Relationships and a life focus have set many people free from the confusing and sick world of drugs. It is a journey you can not walk alone and is a courage's victorious journey for anyone who dares to be set free from the bondage of drugs. I have seen many people set free from drugs. You can be next

You know you should stop, but the pull is irresistible. Addiction to a substance or a behavior is very powerful and can lead us to sacrifice the people and things we love for “just one more hit”. We use the addictive substance to temporarily suspend our more disturbing feelings, but it doesn’t last. The good news is, relief and change are possible. Using a transtheoretical model for addictions, I invite you into a caring, non-judgmental space to explore the root causes of your addiction and reclaim your life.

No one in life plans on having a struggle with an addiction. I have found in my life - that it is often a quest for happiness and security that someone can become entangled in an addiction. What begins as a way of numbing or avoiding painful feelings and seeking a way to feel better becomes a habit and at times - a way of life and one of the only ways to cope with life. I wonder about addictions being the great deceiver. What we hope will help - the magic to make all well - becomes what destroys so much. Naming the problem - is really such an important and courageous step towards healing. It is so important to find support in moving forward and away from an addiction.

Trying quit, but just can't? Dr. Don Russell knows that quitting a bad habit or addiction doesn't come without skill, and support. Dr. Russell uses a scientifically proven revolutionary approach to curb the urge, and change the thoughts and feelings that drive the addiction. "I never thought I could get rid of this" is a comment Dr. Russell often hears as people begin to experience of being free of the urge and the habit. Best of all this doesn't come through willpower alone. It comes from cutting edge therapy in a safe, supportive enviroment.

Addictions of any kind rob not just the one with the addiction but make victims of all who are a part of that person's life. Addictive behaviour runs deep and requires discernment and expertise to fully reconcile its harmful effects emotionally, physically, spiritually, mentally and relationally. But, it is surely worth the work to root it out and bring peace and freedom for all.

Our relationship with any process or substance (drugs/alcohol, pornography, shopping, work, gaming, gambling, social media) becomes unhealthy when it affects our lives in negative ways. Be it increasing distance/conflict in our relationships or creating financial/legal/health/career consequences, the result is a disconnect from our own true values and desires. I work with clients to develop curiosity-appreciating how the addiction, originating as an attempt to solve a problem (trauma, mental illness, stress), has now become the problem. Framing it as such, we can begin to work with dependence with greater perspective and compassion, shifting from ambivalent powerless to resilient action.

Addictions are a way of coping with deep, unrelenting emotional pain. You may be self-medicating to avoid the painful thoughts and feelings often arising out of traumatic childhood experiences. Whether the addiction is to alcohol, drugs, pornography, sex, shopping or gambling the purpose is the same. You are desperately attempting to avoid debilitating emotional pain. Therapy can help you identify and resolve the underlying negative emotions that trigger your addiction. You can learn to control your urges and initiate alternate, healthy responses. You can feel physically and mentally healthier. You can develop a positive sense of self, and re-establish loving relationships.

Counsellor Therapist

In R3C 0G3 - Nearby to West Kildonan.

I work with addictions from a transtheoretical model of therapy. This approach is a model that embraces intentional change; client's decide what change they want to embrace. I focus on the decision making of the individual client, along with assessing an individual's readiness to act on a new healthier behaviour. I also explore and provide strategies for change, or processes for change. This guides my clients through the various stages of change. This is done in a client centered manner, essentially empowering my client's to embrace life in a new, healthy, and fulfilling way.

In R3C 3Z5 - Nearby to West Kildonan.

Not all addictions can be treated the same way, because we are all wired differently in our behaviours. Yet, as humans, there are core humanistic traits that are part of our makeup; that is, we are rewarded by endorphins - that feel-good chemical that stimulates our brain and changes us physiologically. We cannot underestimate the power of the mind. Many of us do not feel we have the capability to will our way out of a certain behaviour - while others feel they do have the 'will-power'. I help my clients stop the crippling cycle of behaviours that have overtaken their lives, and replace these with 'feel good' behaviours, simply by giving them the strength and will to succeed.

In R2G 1L1 - Nearby to West Kildonan.

Recovery from addiction is one of the most difficult things to achieve. Relapse is a real thing, but sadly it is often viewed as a moral failure. The first thing an addict needs is to genuinely sense their counsellor has unconditional positive regard. We want to stop the shame and guilt at our office door. None of us are perfect, so let's join hands and travel together. We will proceed by creating a tailor-made plan that will help you grow out from under the power of addiction and into a new sense of self-betterment.

It saddens me that often people struggling with addiction receive such judgement. I recognize that every single one of us can easily fall into the cycle of addiction, whether it be alcohol, drugs, gambling, work, sex or a multitude of other options. I like to begin from a place of addressing the issue of shame, and then help clients become more self-aware of their feelings and thoughts. I then help them learn to manage life in a more healthy manner - slowly. I believe that every addict has some form of past hurts and wounding that I would love to help them work through, so that they can live a full and vibrant life.

Individual, Couple, and Family Therapist

In R3L 0N9 - Nearby to West Kildonan.

I can help you understand your relationship to addiction(s), move towards readiness for change, and develop and implement a recovery plan (which may include additional supports, such as recovery groups or residential treatment). From a place of compassion and non-judgement, I understand addiction in terms of its impact on the brain, recognizing that as addictive behaviour increases, it can be very hard for someone to change without outside help. As Gabor Mate teaches, addiction is a response to pain, whether that be trauma, anxiety, a need for connection, or other source of distress. I will support you in the healing path to recovering from addiction.

Sometimes we are aware of what we are doing but have no control to stop. I believe the most effective changes begin by gradual changes.

In R2H 1Z8 - Nearby to West Kildonan.

Addiction comes in two forms: substance addiction and behaviour addiction. Most people are familiar with substance addiction. This occurs when drugs or alcohol are consumed in greater quantities than planned, and when this consumption becomes harmful to the person using and those around them. Some common behaviour addictions come in the form of food, shopping, gambling, exercise, pornography, and sex. If you believe that you are living with addiction, or if the addiction of a loved one is affecting your quality of life, get yourself some professional help.
