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.

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 Counselor

Wendi Dumbroff, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

One area of "addictions" I work with is in the sexual arena. However, I view this from a lens of "out of control sexual behavior," rather than an addiction lens. I see this behavior as a symptom of something deeper in the person's history and what is happening in their life, and together, whether individually, or in the context of couples therapy (or both), we explore this. Understanding what is underneath the sexual behavior, is a step toward being able to manage it differently. Regarding substances, though I am not a specialist in this area, substance use issues emerge with clients who come for other things, so I am comfortable working in this arena, and will make referrals if needed.

Addiction is an all consuming disease that effects all areas of your life, emotional, social, physical, relational, economic, legal and spiritual. The 12 step recovery programs are not always enough to reach sobriety as there are often underlying issues. By recovering from addictions you can get your life back, reconnect to broken relationships and gain health as well as healthy self esteem. In addition, therapy will provide tools for relapse prevention, stress management, life coping skills and relationship development.. You can live your life alcohol and drug free with serenity and health.

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.

As a recovering person myself, I have a firsthand knowledge of the power of addiction and the joys of sobriety. I enjoy working with other people who have the courage to face their addiction, understand what is driving it and who are willing to commit to living a sober life. Living sober is a challenging task, and is best accomplished through education, exploration of triggers and alternative coping strategies, and the support of others who encourage your recovery.
