Addiction Counselor

Rev. Christopher Smith, LCAC, LMHC, LMFT

Helping you find wholeness...

Within driving distance of Woodbridge

The present focus of my practice is not on addictions, although that is part of my training and previous emphases (including dual diagnoses) and I maintain currency as a licensed clinical addictions counselor. If you are seeking individual treatment for addictions (especially if connected to other issues), I would welcome talking about this with you to help determine if I would be the right person for you to work with. My general approach is from a systems approach combined with pastoral counseling. Assistance can also be offered for those who are seeking to deepen the spiritual dimension of their recovery. I look forward to your journey to wholeness and peace.

If you are struggling with addiction, you know it is no simple feat to quit. Beyond the physical dependence that you may be fighting, there are all kinds of psychological factors that come into play. At the Lukin Center, we use cognitive behavioral therapy and emotionally focused therapy to target the many contextual factors that keep one dependent on a substance. We work to address cravings and triggers, ambivalence towards quitting, and other underlying emotional issues that may have led to drug use in the first place. You are not alone. If you want help quitting, our expert therapists can provide a supportive and accepting environment to take that first step.

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.

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 Counselor

Walter Masterson, LCSW

Psychotherapy and Counseling

Within driving distance of Woodbridge

This is an area of treatment where I have seen many miracles. Successfully moving beyond substance dependence and abuse is not a matter of will power and character. Paradoxically, being strong willed and independent can work against recovery; addictions are very 'sticky' and five decades of research and experience confirms that attempting to keep them in check without help does not work. Twelve step programs (AA, NA, CA, etc) are the ‘gold standard’ of recovery, and are tried and true methods of achieving lasting abstinence. I possess a strong 12 Step program background, but know that not everybody can walk into a meeting and feel at home. Come for a consultation and see what is possible.

While my specialty is not in addiction treatment, turning toward substances or habits that create distance or provide exits from relationships is a behavior that I treat in individual, couple and family therapy. We will explore the underlying reasons, the positives and negatives of addictive behavior and our work will help you gain control and make choices that will repair connection to others.

Addiction Counselor

Gerald Schoenewolf, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychoanalyst

Within driving distance of Woodbridge

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.

Addiction Counselor

Carolyn AlRoy, Psy.D.

Licensed Psychologist

Within driving distance of Woodbridge

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.

While most treatment approaches to addiction include 12 step programs, rehabs, and now sober living houses, Grey Matters International, Inc. provides a wildly successful alternative to traditional models of addiction treatment----that keeps the brain in mind. That is, talking to the conscious brain while the primal brain is deciding things even before you are consciously aware? Well, that is the problem to solve in addiction. We have the solution utilizing a new cutting edge neuroscience-centered brain rebalancing system. Contact kevin@kevinflemingphd.com or call 877-606-6161.

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

Patricia Schneider, Dr., Ph. D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Woodbridge

I address prior psychoactive substance dependence addictions, sexual addictions, bulimia nervosa, pathological gambling, internet addiction, nicotine addiction, compulsive shopping or buying. Inherent to this is targeting mood, anxiety, and any accompanying Attention Deficit Disorders, as deficits in affect and self-regulatory functioning usually precede and increase the development of the aforementioned addictions. We will explore your tendency to engage in pleasure-producing behavior characterized by impaired control and continuation despite harmful consequences with the aim of eliminating the addiction and substituting it/them with healthy endeavors and feelings.
