We are all addicts in some form or another. Yet whether it is to coffee, heroin, the internet, or food, addiction is always reaching for the wrong thing. The beloved object is only an attempt to fill a void that is calling for something else, and that's why it never quite satisfies us. Withdrawing the energy from the object is never easy, for it means suffering a lack of control. 12 step programs help because they provide not only structure, but human relationships. Psychotherapy is even more helpful for it not only provides those same things, but also helps one find what the addiction is a stand in for. This answer is always individual, and always both deeply personal and healing

One is too many and a thousand is not enough... Addiction is our culture/society's way of dealing with the 'true desires of our hearts'. Stop beating yourself up, I am willing to bet that what started your addiction is not your fault. What matters now is us looking for the ways we can help you come into 'the fullness of life' that you are looking for!

If you are struggling with an addiction or have starting to collect some clean or sober time, you may notice that you have a lot of feelings that hit you. In the past, you may have covered these feelings up with your drug or addictive behavior but now that you are clean, the feelings are sitting in you begging to be dealt with. I can help you face these feelings and thoughts head on. In doing so, you will learn to deal with your feelings without turning to your addictive behavior. The benefit here is the ability to feel the entire range of feelings from deep sadness and anger to genuine happiness.

No one intentionally becomes addicted. It starts innocently enough, when we turning to something outside ourselves to have fun and feel better. And for a while, it works. Until it doesn’t. Whether it's drugs, alcohol, gambling, shopping, sex, pornography, internet use or something else – without realizing it, we can lose control. And when we do, we start to lose who we are - in our mind, body, spirit, relationships and career. In my work, I help people to understand their addiction, to begin to regain control and to start to heal the pain underlying it all. It begins with acknowledging that we need help. If you are ready, give me a call. Maybe together, we can find a way through.

I have experience and training in substance and process (behavioural) addiction. I draw on EMDR to help reduce the urges that result from specific triggers related to the addition.

Addiction Therapist

Sharolyn Sloat, PhD, CPBC #1666

Psychologist (Registered with CPBC)

453 Head Street, West Bay Marina, Victoria, BC V9A 5S1

Dr. Sloat treats addiction using non-12 Step methods (including CBT), and while she welcomes people struggling with any stage of addiction, she specializes in working with those who are post-rehabilitation. It is important to understand why one becomes addicted in the first place, and it's important to establish new and healthy patterns that edge out the addictive ones such that relapse is less likely. During treatment Dr. Sloat touches upon the actual addictions, but mostly she focuses on the underlying reasons and factors that perpetuate them. If left untreated, addiction becomes "hard-wired" in, and Dr. Sloat helps people "re-wire" their lives.
