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!!!

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.

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.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Certified EMDR Therapist

Within driving distance of North Wales

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.

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).

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.

Addiction Counselor

Walter Matweychuk, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

Within driving distance of North Wales

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.

People now seek help for drinking or drug concerns before it's worse. You can address if a drinking pattern has become unhealthy or when the need to use to relieve stress, boredom, a transition or loss, or manage anxiety has become a habit. Perhaps, you've tried to stop or cut down. Yet, the vortex pulls you back in despite your efforts. Drinking and/or drug use effects individuals struggling with addiction as well as their partners, parents, and family members. I use a supportive, empowering, non judgmental approach to my work with substance use disorders or risky drinking and in helping their loved ones.
