Addiction is way of escaping from life, escaping from yourself, escaping from pain. The addict is a slave to his or her addiction. Whatever the problem is you are escaping from gets worse and more complicated. Often the addict losses his/her sense of self and self esteem, relationships are damaged, and other losses occur. The addict tends to becomes self centered in their addiction and hurts people close to him/her. The addict may become less present with self & other. Recovery involves first & foremost getting sober and working to stay sober. It also means coming to terms with the pain that you are fleeing from and repairing the damage done. I work with drug, alcohol, sex and love addiction

Most counseling sessions are conducted outdoors while walking on the Pennypack, Neshaminy or Core Creek hike & bike trail. Scientists have long known a workout can temporarily boost serotonin levels and improve mood, the latest research shows that exercise can have a deeper and more lasting effect, and thus allows me another avenue in which to provide a unique experience for my clients.

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).

Addiction Counselor

Walter Matweychuk, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

Within driving distance of Darby

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.

Due to widespread stigmas about addiction, individuals struggling with drug or alcohol dependence often suffer alone. Luckily, with my support, that isolation can be eliminated entirely. I have spent many years working with teens and adults in varying stages of addiction and recovery, as well as their families. I use a combination of motivational interviewing, insight oriented therapies and a warm and nonjudgmental environment to support all recovery goals.

Addiction is an insidious disease; substances promise solace. but provide utter wreckage. This is often difficult to see, and even when a person has acceptance of the nature of his or her illness, change can be more than difficult. I provide empathic, direct therapy to clients suffering from drug and alcohol addiction. This is my personal and professional passion, I too was once in your seat. Hope is here.

Avoidance of certain issues and feelings can be a major motivator for an addiction. Exploring what may be driving your addiction as a way of coping can help family members to know the best way to support their loved ones . Having years of experience with treating individuals and families address the issues surrounding addiction, I have seen people successfully address this issue and learn how to live meaningful lives as they entered the process of therapy and as they began building on their recovery supports.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Letting go of an addiction is hard work – but living with addiction isn't really living, is it? Our cravings and obsessions can run our lives. But how to take charge again? I believe that addiction serves an important purpose. In some way, it allows you to survive and cope with stressors, helps you to calm down, or wake up, or feel better, at least for awhile. We will work to understand the why of your addiction - what deep longing the addictive behavior is trying to fill so desperately, but unsuccessfully. You can learn healthier ways to comfort yourself, ways that bring you closer to people you love, instead of distancing them. You will take back the power to run your own life!!!
