I have fifteen years of experience working as a professional counselor in the field of addictions. As a recovering addict myself I bring a level of empathy and experience that I believe greatly increases my effectiveness in connecting and working with folks struggling with addiction and with loved ones who struggle to how best to express love and support while they avoid enabling the addiction. Addiction cannot be dealt with alone. It is impossible to calculate the value of seeking experienced help when facing addiction.

Having a complete understanding of the midbrain functions, and how dopamine is manipulated over a period of time, helps the addict understand that the decisions they make during their addiction, are not a reflection of their morality. These behaviors are survival instincts triggered by the mesolimbic system in an attempt to keep the addiction alive. Most addicts don't understand, that they are in the grips of a progressive illness.
