Addiction Counselor

My approach to treatment for addiction is within the context of a disordered attachment history. Unaddressed childhood trauma, neglect and dysfunctional caregiving often manifest in forms including addiction, depression, domestic violence, and homelessness. Use of a substance becomes a means to cope with the fear, rage, and worthlessness experienced within adverse childhood experiences. Effective treatment for addiction must address the underlying emotional components and restore a sense of trust and self worth.

Addiction is a mental health condition and I treat addiction by a multi-pronged process predominately from a Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) model. I help my clients understand the reasons they use a substance or engage in an addictive behavior, teach them skills regulate their emotions and tolerance distress that might otherwise lead them to engage in their addiction, and address any underlying issues that contribute to their addiction. I also help clients with with concerns about their substance use or compulsive behavior to avoid developing addictions.

In order to recover from compulsive disorders or substance abuse and addiction, a person must stop their dysfunctional behavior. While recovery may be that simple, it is certainly not easy. Substance abuse is at least a psychological habit and may also be a physiological one as well. People often use and abuse substances in an attempt to address an internal disturbance or upset, and mask feelings of inadequacy or other issues. Nevertheless, with a commitment to the process of recovery, and a willingness to take an honest look at oneself, it is amazing the progress people can make. I take a very direct, but supportive approach in helping individuals to make their lives more manageable.

I help my clients become aware of how they protect against their feelings. These are called addictions We can use anything as an addiction if our intention is to avoid our feelings or to use something to make us feel worthy. I can help you manage the loneliness, helplessness and heartbreak that you may be avoiding with your addictions. Once you know you can handle your feelings then you no longer have to protect against them and can let go of your addiction.

Using a Harm Reduction approach to treatment of addictions has proven to be an effective model for intervention with a wide range of substance and behavioral addictions. A Harm Reduction approach helps the addict formulate goals and structures behaviors around their attainment. Goals are set by the individual and treatment is supportive, collaborative, and goal-oriented.

Addiction Counselor

Saranya Tracey, M.A., psychotherapist,

Saranya M. Tracey, MA, Clinical Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of Monroe

Ms. Tracey's approach to addiction to alcohol, drugs, sex, unhealthy or even abusive relationships, etc., is to first get clean through rehab or AA meetings. Ms. Tracey then treats the underlying cause of addictions which usually have to do with some kind of hidden belief that you are not good enough. Unearthing root causes that lead to behaviors where you come to depend of any number of addictions will help you to eliminate self-destructive dependencies that numb your feelings but also make you feel as though you are not really living. Often you are operating from a false self that you are unaware of. Ms. helps you to live in the true self where happiness abides.
