Overall, I treat addiction much like I would treat any other crisis. I would do addiction assessment to make sure I'm the right person to treat you. I'd identify triggers, what makes you more likely to repeat the addictive behavior. I can work with substance use and sex addiction. My general belief is that addiction is a way that people avoid dealing with other people and their problems. It can be a learned behavior. In order to stop doing the offensive behavior, it is important to focus on what you do want to do. This is the process of recovery, and I will do my best to facilitate this.

Sometimes consuming drugs, food, alcohol, sex, among other things soothe anxiety or satisfy emotional hunger. However, when the roots of the anxiety and emptiness are not addressed, consumption and use have a fleeting effect, leaving you at a loss and in need of consuming or using more, and the cycle continues. As a therapist, I will help you look at the roots of your addiction: together we will do the hard work of searching underneath layers of denial and understand the wounds and pain that lie at the core of your addition. There is no magical wand that would make addictions disappears, but there is caring understanding that will help you find new ways of dealing with wounds and pain.

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.

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.

Ericksonian hypnosis is considered to be one of the most effective forms of hypnotherapy today. Named after arguably the greatest psychotherapist in history, it is a very specific form of hypnosis and differs from other types of hypnosis in that it is rooted in the use of metaphor and storytelling, as opposed to only direct suggestion. As an Ericksonian hypnotist, I have successfully treated people in the following areas: smoking addiction, insomnia, trichotillomania (hair pulling) and weight loss. Hypnosis sessions typically last 2-3 hours long.

The purpose of Addiction Counseling is to help the client identify for him or herself if there is an addiction present. If this is the case, a variety of cognitive behavioral techniques are utilized as well as mindfulness exercises to help with focusing and how to cope with difficult emotions in healthy ways to become abstinent. In addition, there is a focus on stengths, and what the client has done in the past to abstain from using the substance of choice. Thus, the client can try and implement at least some of these techniques again and stay away from triggers and past negative behaviors that led to relapse. There is also focus on self-esteem building and how to prevent relapse in the future once the client is abstinent.

Holistic Psychologist, Author, Focalizer

In 10003 - Nearby to Palisades Park.

I have come to know addictions are initially attempts at self-medication for a troubled soul. Initially, the addictive activity relieves the pain when there didn’t seem to be another option or resource. This pain relief becomes an addiction when a person develops an inner compulsion (unnoticed at first), which begins to negatively impact other areas of life. By this point, an insidious denial creeps in to protect the addiction and the chaos, both inner and outer, now runs your life. For the addiction recovery, one shoe does not fit all. Our focus in working together is to relieve present suffering and pave the way for the most graceful movement possible toward abstinence or harm reduction.

While I am not a CASAC, I have worked with numerous men and women as they address their struggles with alcohol, drugs, sex, etc. Support is such a powerful part of coming to grips with any addiction. You need to feel that you are not alone. In addition to a therapy environment, I do believe it is important to engage in a group dedicated to the particular challenge at hand. So important to not feel that you are in this alone.

Addiction Counselor

Craig Beck, ABNLP, ABHYP, DhP

Alcohol Addiction Therapist & Mentor

In 11105 - Nearby to Palisades Park.

Stop Drinking Expert offers an alternative to embarrassing twelve step group meetings, expensive inpatient treatment centers and ineffective willpower. Our approach to treating alcohol addiction is to start with the subconscious conditioning that has gradually built up around the drug. Often addicts are only told that they have an alcohol use disorder and must never drink again. The problem with this abrupt form of 'treatment' is the client remains psychologically anchored to using alcohol as a coping mechanism and as a tool to help alleviate negative emotional states. The Stop Drinking Expert method helps the problem drinker to understand what is driving their need to drink.
