Addictions can get you in alot of trouble. Arguments with your spouse, DWI's with their related costs, hangovers, missed work, neglecting children, etc. All these troubles cause you pain. Let's say 50 units of pain. Staying sober is also painful. There is the pain of life's stress without the sedative effects of alcohol or coping by drugs. There is also the pain associated with resisting the temptation to use. Just because you stopped doesn't mean freinds, family, and work problems disappear. So let's say the pain of staying sober is also 50 units. The pain of addiction will turn to 60, 80 units etc., while the pain of staying sober turns to 40, 20, etc. One exception-the dry drunk.

From personal experience, I have a good idea of how an addiction can cause problems in many areas of a person's life - work, school, family, friends, legal, etc. And I know how difficult it can be to stop an addictive habit, whether it is an addiction to substances, or an "addiction" to a particular type of behavior. Meet with me and see if you agree that I know what I'm talking about and have some good ideas about what you might do to change your habits.

Addiction is a mental health condition and I treat addiction by a multi-pronged process predominately from a Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) model. I help my clients understand the reasons they use a substance or engage in an addictive behavior, teach them skills regulate their emotions and tolerance distress that might otherwise lead them to engage in their addiction, and address any underlying issues that contribute to their addiction.

Addiction Counselor

Mark Strauss, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Pornography is one of the most addictive substances on the planet. Like marijuana it is a gateway activity leading to all kinds of destructive sexual habits. Like cocaine, pornography is itself addictive and destructive to your brain, to your relationships, and to your spirit. I am passionate about helping teenage and adult men find freedom from the guilt, shame, and compulsion of pornography viewing. Initially, it may seem impossible to imagine a life free from pornography, but it is possible and the rewards are incredible.

Addiction Counselor

Theresa Kellam, Ph.D., HSP

Licensed Psychologist

Addiction is usually brought on by trying to avoid emotional pain. Our society teaches us to avoid and be ashamed of our emotions. We become disconnected trying not to feel sad or angry or afraid. If someone asked you right now how you feel, would you be able to answer? Where do you feel the emotion in your body? What color, shape, temperature and texture would it be? Learning to become fascinated with our emotions can help us face them. After all, you can't help how you feel, you can only choose how you behave. Working through emotional pain is the ultimate freedom from addiction.

Addition can keep you from doing what you should be doing. It can keep you from fulfilling your obligations, being productive and living a happy and healthy life. The stress that can come from not being productive and fulfilling obligations just makes things worse. Addiction counseling allows you to explore what you are currently dealing with and develop strategies for improvement.

If you are like me, you've tried multiple times to give up whatever your particular addiction may be. A recovering pornography addict myself, I understand addiction. Having served as the Celebrate Recovery pastor at my church for over six years, I'm intimately familiar with the 12-step model, and affirm its effectiveness. However, there is another piece to the puzzle--the 2% Factor. Together, we will identify what that 2% is you've been holding on to that has helped keep you in the chains of addiction. Together, we will help you find freedom from whatever your hurts, habits, or hang-ups may be.
