Addiction Counselor

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

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.

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.

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.

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.

Our approach to working with clients that struggle with substance abuse is one of Harm Reduction around current use. We believe that the focusing on healthy living, building support networks, and processing through issues that feed addiction help clients gain control over their lives and their substance use. We do not believe in reprimending my clients for failing to remain sober or working from an abstinence only model. If abstinence models have not worked for you, We am here to help in a new way. We are available for a free 15 minute phone consultation to determine whether counseling with us is right for you - to schedule, email info@nassauwellness.com or call/text (516) 387-5143.

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 Counselor

Gerald Schoenewolf, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychoanalyst

There are all kinds of addictions, from substance abuse to internet pornography. In each case, the bottom line is that a person is dealing with feelings of depression, anger or anxiety in a destructive way. They drink, gamble or look at pornography whenever they feel stress, but do not face the feelings that are causing the stress and work through them. I encourage addicts to make use of 12-step programs in combination with psychotherapy. When they stop denying and commit themselves to both, they quickly make progress.

Licensed Psychologist

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.

Substance Use Disorder is a new diagnosis that incoroprates both abuse and dependency on substances. Someone who struggles with a substance use disorder will likely be taking more of a substance in order to get the same effect, have strong cravings, spend a lot of time and money trying to get it, have difficulty stopping, and develop a tolerance. Our goal is to find ways to decrease the desire to act on the urges, find values and live by the values you choose, and help you find more enjoyment from life without substances.

Twelve-step programs are extraordinarily helpful. They help addicts to understand their addictive behaviors and to develop long-term coping strategies. For over twenty years, in conjunction with Twelve-step programs, I have helped addicts to understand and work through the deep emotional feelings they experience in the recovery process. I work with both gay and straight people. Please visit my website lhorowitz.com for more information.

Addiction Counselor

Gaetano Salvadore, CHLC, CSPC

Certified Life Coach, Certified Sports Psychology Coach & Certified Hypnotist

Within driving distance of Westfield

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.
