I am a licensed clinical social worker, licensed alcohol and drug counselor and have a sap credential. I have worked in a treatment facility, 27 years in a school district as a substance abuse coordinator and have also worked in a state prison. Through out all these years, I have worked with all populations and all addictions. There is not one approach. I tend to be eclectic. I am passionate about helping people and offer an environment that is supportive in implementing pathways to healing.

Carolyn AlRoy, Psy.D.

Licensed Psychologist

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.

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.

Addiction Counselor

Walter Masterson, LCSW

Psychotherapy and Counseling

Within driving distance of Elmsford

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.

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.

Addiction issues are wide and varied. Be it alcohol or drug abuse, gambling, food, sexualizing or the internet, substance and situational addictions can consume our lives. Part of the difficulty is understanding one's journey through the continuum of addiction...trying to understand where that shift materialized from indulgence to over-indulgence to true addiction. Besides a behavioral approach we need to understand why we entered this cycle of dependency. Once we begin to take our lives back we are on the road to independence and self regard, the two best weapons that protect us from returning to our addictive cycle.

Addiction Counselor

Mitchell Milch, LCSW

Psychotherapist/Couples Counselor

Within driving distance of Elmsford

An excellent way to understand addiction is that it is a problem of self-regulation. This might be a problem of self-discipline, resilience, self-soothing, attention, etc. Many folks use drugs of choice to provide functions they feel helpless to do for themselves. The therapeutic alliance becomes the provider of regulatory capacities not internalized early in life. A safe and secure attachment permits the patient to cultivate a healthy dependency on the therapist without re-living the fears of judgments and abandonments that interfered with them depending on caregivers who may or may not have been able to model and instruct what was needed.

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.

Cyber and video game addictions or abuse are a relative recent phenomena. This is a issue that effects youth and adults. It can cause loss of sleep, social isolation and result in neglecting basic and important responsibilities. Through psychotherapy we will explore the need for the escape, what is the secondary gain, as well as working on tools to help change the behaviors that have become routine and habit.

Addiction Counselor

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

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.

Psychotherapist / Licensed Clinical Social Worker

When a person is struggling with addiction, misusing alcohol or substances, they are not well mentally, physically, or spiritually. A person does not have to drink (or use) every day to have a problem. To begin recovery, one must first admit there is a problem, and then be willing to make changes and accept help. People CAN and do recover and improve their lives if recovery is made their number one priority....when it comes to sobriety, "half measures avail (us) nothing" - or at least not enough to fully recover. My addiction treatment approach is Integrative: this means that along w/ individual therapy, we integrate other therapeutic healing modalities and supports for an optimal outcome.
