I began my career in the treatment of alcohol and drug addiction, and believe that addictions primarily express difficulties people have in tolerating strong emotions. This is a fundamental issue, and the use of substances often masks it and instead becomes the primary focus of living. I will help you to explore how your "love affair" with your substance of choice brings you anxiety relief in the short term and defeats your interest and ability to grow and develop in the long term. We will also discuss the value of 12 step programs.

Sexual addiction is painful for both the addict and their partner. It is a process addiction; different from substance addictions like drugs or alcohol. This addiction wreaks havoc in relationships and causes a great deal of fallout (consequences) when it is disclosed to or discovered by the addict's partner. It is painful, even when there was no intention to cause hurt. I specialize in sexual addiction treatment, working with addicts, partners, and couples who want to recover from the effects of this disease. There is great success when people commit themselves to a true and honest recovery.

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.

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.

Walter Masterson, LCSW

Psychotherapy and Counseling

In 10021 - Nearby to Port Chester.

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.

Addiction is a symptom of underlying pain and trauma. It's the need separate and self medicate from this pain and people often use substances and impulsive behaviors to escape. Then the vicious cycle begins of getting attached to a negative behavior, becoming compulsive , craving it, and losing everything because of it. It's a vicious cycle of trying to fill the emptiness. Grasping at a moment of pleasure only reinforces the attachment which continues the suffering. Allow me help you help you break the cycle . But first you must have a willingness to surrender your old behaviors and be open to new ideas and strategies. I am here if you want the help. I hope to see you soon!

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.

Addiction can take many shapes and forms. Addictions to drugs, alcohol, relationships, shopping, gambling, food or sex have become a symptom of a society looking to escape from our pain. Fear of facing these facts can be overwhelming and denying to our addictions will continue to cause pain. Finally facing our addictions is not something that we have to do alone.

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.
