Addiction Counselor

My approach to treatment for addiction is within the context of a disordered attachment history. Unaddressed childhood trauma, neglect and dysfunctional caregiving often manifest in forms including addiction, depression, domestic violence, and homelessness. Use of a substance becomes a means to cope with the fear, rage, and worthlessness experienced within adverse childhood experiences. Effective treatment for addiction must address the underlying emotional components and restore a sense of trust and self worth.

Although not an addictions counselor, I help clients who struggle with others in their lives that struggle with an addiction. I often instruct clients on way to identify unhealthy vs. healthy boundaries in relating to their addicted loved one. I teach clients about codependency and specific techniques on handling the "traps" of being close to someone with an addiction. If help clients determine if they have an addiction and give them resources on best treatment options. Family therapy helps client families better relate to one another and deal with addiction in a more healthy way.

Addiction Counselor

Walter Matweychuk, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

Within driving distance of Bensalem

I show people who are misusing substances that overcoming an addiction is quite possible. I emphasize work and practice at coping skills. I first help the individual to judge only their self-defeating behavior but never to put themselves down as a person for being addicted. This helps reduce guilt, shame, anxiety and denial. We focus on developing coping skills to handle problems and change behavior. I show the individual how to develop emotional and behavioral control even when life is difficult and stressful. I teach how to increase frustration tolerance. I lay out a specific plan for coping with temptation. I build and maintain motivation for staying with the recovery process.

Problems with mood altering chemicals (e.g., alcohol, heroin) or behaviors (e.g., gambling, sex) are still not well understood by scientists. Explanations for compulsive use which claim the cause is a disease or brain disorder lack supporting evidence. Counseling an individual with such problems requires taking into consideration a wide variety of contributing environmental, biological, psychological (e.g., mental health problems) factors. Treatment is typically tailored to the client and will usually involve addressing motivational factors, the client's goals, and educating the family on how they can exert a reinforcing and supportive role in the client's resolution of their problem(s).
