Addictions tend to become the “dirty little secret” that provokes feelings of shame and alienates us from our friends and family. When dealing with addictive behaviours, an important question to ask yourself is: “what am I running from?” Addictions help us numb uncomfortable thoughts and feelings. Until these underlying issues are addressed, anytime we get triggered into certain thoughts and feelings, we will be tempted to turn to the addiction of choice to manage them. Counselling helps identify the issues provoking the addictive behaviours, manage triggers, and provide a framework in which to move from addiction into health.

Steve Jukes, M.Sc. in MFT, R.Psych.

Registered Psychologist

#312, 9707 110 Street (Edmonton Psychological Group), Edmonton, AB T5K 2L9

Addictions are commonly viewed as ways of self-soothing, that is, of incorporating a means of avoiding painful feelings. Essentially, patterned substance abuse or compulsive behaviours serve to meet this need in the short term, but are dysfunctional and damaging on the whole, becoming increasingly pervasive and difficult to change with time. Exploration of the feelings behind the addictive behaviour allows for greater understanding, ways to incorporate different routines to replace harmful patterns, and an opportunity to feel what needs to be felt in a safe and non-judgmental environment.

Addiction Therapist

George Lucki, MPhil, RPsych, FRSA

Addictions are an expression of our psychological vulnerability to harmful substances or patterns of behaviour that create the illusion of happiness while taking away our ability to exercise free and healthy choices that are consistent with who we are as individuals. Counselling helps us overcome addictions and acquire the skills to meet our personal and interpersonal needs in ways that are healthier or authentic.
