Miles Salisbury, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Addictions usually begin to take life when the substance or behavior of choice we choose to use most often becomes compulsive. It begins to have a mind of its own. It becomes unconscious to you and takes over. When we compulsively seek these substances or behaviors (eating, sexuality, gambling, and many others) to relieve pain, check out or numb out, or find oblivion, we are addicted to them. Most often these are not bad in and of themselves, but when we become addicted to them and they begin to interfere with our lives on some or all levels we are at risk for many undesireable consequences. I will help you to interrupt the pattern and the power to find release.

Deborah Orandon, MS, LPC, NCC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Happy Valley

I work with clients who are seeking help because they are ready to, or have recently, quit the addictive behavior or substance they have had an addictive relationship with and are seeking to dive into deep self examination and life change. The depth work that I facilitate uses a combination of techniques catered to the individual needs and interests of the client. We work to understand in new ways the needs the addiction was seeking to meet and help the inner pain that the addiction was trying to ameliorate. We address the lifestyle, environmental, work/educational, relationship and inner-relationship changes that the individual needs to make to support abstinence/sobriety, growth & joy.

Do you feel out of control? Do you need more of a substance, person, or experience just to feel good? Is the rest of your life suffering because of it? Addiction can take many forms – from drugs and alcohol, to food, sex, relationships, even exercise. You might have a sense that something is off balance or tried to stop many times, and maybe even feel shame because of it. Your own honesty and reaching out for support is the best thing you can do for yourself. The point is not just to stop whatever has taken over your life, but to find out why it is there in the first place. This is how you can discover the real reward and sustainable healing potential within whatever addiction you are facing

Addiction Counselor

David Anderson, MA, LPC, NCC

LPC (Licensed Professional Counselor)

Within driving distance of Happy Valley

I have functioned as an addiction counselor for a Portland hospital as well as acted as the Senior Therapist at a local addiction recovery facility. I hold group sessions for people suffering with addiction issues. I see addiction as a comorbidity issue; therefore, I work with people's strengths rather than dwelling on their weakened state. I am a believer in moving forward and not dwelling on the past and it takes strength in accomplishing that.

Ross Cohen, MA, LPC, LLC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Whether you’re struggling with alcohol, drugs, or some type of compulsive behavior (e.g., sex, relationships, eating, spending) you know how painful and difficult it can be to feel out of control. Fortunately, there is a lot that you can do to reverse this pattern. Processing trauma, shifting your belief system, and developing new skills and behaviors create a pathway to increased empowerment. I find Dr. Robert Miller’s Feeling-State Addiction Protocol, which uses EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing), to be very effective for working with addictive and compulsive behaviors. Imagine how it could feel if you – not the addictive behavior – were in charge of your life!

Licensed Professional Counselor

I am a fan of 12 step recovery methods whether your issue is food, drugs or alcohol. It is a time-tested system that will help you address issues of denial, level of powerlessness and helplessness that may be at the root of your addiction. I am confident of this: You can be free from your addiction, if you really want to be. You will have to decide what/who is most important to you and take action.

Addiction Counselor

Karen Nam, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker (L#5719)

Within driving distance of Happy Valley

I am passionate about helping individuals embrace recovery and find freedom. I have my own recovery story and have experienced addiction issues up close. In my view, addictive behavior is often related to trauma or loss and develops as an adaptive strategy to cope with difficult or negative affective states and feelings. Healing, in part, involves learning new skills. I specialize in trauma/loss & addiction issues and assert that they are often closely linked. I am also a believer in the 12 Steps whether it be AA, NA, OA, or ACA etc. The transformation that can come from working the Steps is often profound.

Addiction Counselor

Jacqueline Ilana Bradford, MA LMFT (intern) NCC

Marriage Couples and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Happy Valley

I use a Dialectical approach to abstinence. The use of DBT (dialectic behavior therapy). This therapeutic approach involves reading a DBT book, and homework. The client must commit to abstaining from the use of drugs, and alcohol and commit to working toward a life of total abstinence. A non-judgmental approach is taken should a relapse occur, with problem solving techniques to reduce the dangers of continued substance abuse.

Kicking the prescription drug abuse habit -- or any other addiction -- is a major accomplishment. But for most people with opioid addiction, detox is only the beginning of a long-term battle against craving and relapse. Counseling is an essential part of drug abuse treatment for many people. Cognitive behavioral therapy, family counseling, and other therapy approaches can help people recovering from opioid addiction stay clean. Psychotherapy can also treat the other mental health conditions that often contribute to prescription drug abuse.

Addiction brings along with it a host of internal, emotional battles. Depression, anxiety, self-loathing and shame are merely a few of the challenges we face when struggling with an addiction. Your addiction doesn't have to define you. I will help you uncover the cause(s) of your substance abuse, and work with you to develop the awareness and tools necessary to work towards sobriety. Equally as important to your recovery, if a relapse occurs, I'll be here to support you.

In my work with addiction, it is important for me to treat my client with dignity and respect. I communicate in a non-shaming way that creates a safe space for clients to explore their triggers and create new alternatives. I believe that recovery is not just about quitting a behavior, but engaging in healthy behavior. I work with the individual struggling as well as significant others.
