When it come to addictions, and particularly substance abuse, it often requires a team approach to helping to deal with addictions that can include a medical team and/or accountability groups. My role would typically be that of helping you understand the role of addictions in your life, and begin to face the difficult issues that you have otherwise been avoiding through addictive behaviours and/or substance abuse. As you heal from your hurt and pain, you will gain true confidence and empowerment as you gain restoration of your soul. If you are ready to face this, I look forward to hearing from you.

We all have patterns that take on a life of their own; drive us toward harm rather than good. Addiction is most usefully understood in this way. It can show up as a substance or behaviour that may merely draw our attention too often or dominate our waking hours. All addiction arises from attempts (conscious or not) to survive otherwise unbearable situations by distracting ourselves from thoughts or feelings that we become deeply afraid to face. Through increased awareness and understanding of what we are running from, building our resilience & developing skills to face those buried experiences, you can become whole again and get back in control of your choices.

Cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) techniques for addictions are used in the form of reinforcement and conditioning as learning processes in the development of addictive behaviours. There are various skills that clients learn to identify and change problem behaviours to reduce or abstain from drug use. This entails monitoring early warning signs for drug or alcohol cravings, identifying high-risk environments and situations associated with substance use, exploring negative consequences of continued substance use, and developing effective strategies for coping with temptations to use and avoiding triggering high-risk environments.

Any addiction engages in a behavior, for which the rewarding effects provide a compelling incentive to repeat the activity, despite the detrimental consequences. Addiction may involve the use of substances such as alcohol, drugs, nicotine, shopping, food, sex or behaviors such as gambling. There is evidence that addictive behaviors share key neurobiological features: They intensely involve brain pathways of reward and reinforcement, which involve the neurotransmitter dopamine. Working on underlying issues and dealing feelings is the best way out.
