As a Specialist licensed in Addictions, I am very well experienced and versed in this area. Addictions not only effect the addict, but all of those around him or her. This is truly a "family disease" or "problem" if you may prefer. I strongly believe that mentally-well and emotionally stable people do not simply become "addicts." There is always something underneath the addiction that causes one to rely on a substance, behavior or activity to "feel better" and "deal" with that underlying issue. In doing so, the addict's healthy coping mechanisms deteriorate and they "forget" how to use them. Recovery must include abstinence, educated loved ones and re-building those coping skills.

Addiction is an all consuming disease that effects all areas of your life, emotional, social, physical, relational, economic, legal and spiritual. The 12 step recovery programs are not always enough to reach sobriety as there are often underlying issues. By recovering from addictions you can get your life back, reconnect to broken relationships and gain health as well as healthy self esteem. In addition, therapy will provide tools for relapse prevention, stress management, life coping skills and relationship development.. You can live your life alcohol and drug free with serenity and health.

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).
