While there is definitely a biochemical component to addiction, there is more to it than that. If it was simply biochemical, all that would be needed would be to detox from the substance. Once the physical craving is gone you would know never to try it again. But clearly this is not the case. Addiction is also about self-medicating away difficult emotions. To truly conquer an addiction you must learn to manage your emotions effectively.

William Kelly, Ph.D., NCP, LPC

Psychotherapist/Professional Counselor

5725 Forward Ave, Suite 300, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

My approach to treating addiction is contingent on your abstinence. Once you are in a program so you are not using, my approach is to help you examine your need for the addiction and what purpose it serves in your life. This self-knowledge is helpful in understanding why you may feel controlled by your addiction, what it is defending against, and finding the willpower to remain abstinent.
