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.

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.

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).
