The decision to get help to control or moderate your use of alcohol or substances, or whether you’ve decided you want to be entirely abstinent, or whether you just want to explore the role that addiction might play in connection to an underlying depression, anxiety, stress, or self-esteem issue, you are being proactive in trying to find someone who can help you. Acknowledging that you need help is never easy, but it’s one of the best things you can do for yourself. Finding the right addiction therapist is just as important as making the decision to get help.

Addiction is the result of an individual attempting to change their emotional state - all addiction involves an individual attempting to self-medicate from an uncomfortable mental state whether that be boredom, lack of meaning, depression, anxiety, or something else. The choice of self medication may be alcohol or another substance, sexual behaviors, or something else. After the self-medication wears off the old mental state returns and the individual may be caught in a repetitive pattern of feeling shame or blame and being caught in an ongoing pattern of lapse and and relapse behaviors. Therapy involves identifying and eliminating triggers that result in lapse and relapse behaviors.
