Addiction Counselor

John Gerson, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

Within driving distance of Sleepy Hollow

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.

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.

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

Mitchell Milch, LCSW

Psychotherapist/Couples Counselor

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.

Addiction Counselor

Laura OKeefe, LCSW

Psychotherapist / Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of Sleepy Hollow

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.

Addiction Counselor

Edgard Danielsen, PhD, LP

Licensed Psychoanalyst

Within driving distance of Sleepy Hollow

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 Counselor

Walter Masterson, LCSW

Psychotherapy and Counseling

Within driving distance of Sleepy Hollow

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 Counselor

Jeff Robinson, MSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of Sleepy Hollow

While I am not a CASAC, I have worked with numerous men and women as they address their struggles with alcohol, drugs, sex, etc. Support is such a powerful part of coming to grips with any addiction. You need to feel that you are not alone. In addition to a therapy environment, I do believe it is important to engage in a group dedicated to the particular challenge at hand. So important to not feel that you are in this alone.

Addiction Counselor

Patricia Schneider, Dr., Ph. D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Sleepy Hollow

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.

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.

Recovery from addiction is the primary focus in my practice. Clients can expect to learn not only the principles of addiction recovery but how they work in real life circumstances.
