I started out 38 years ago working mainly with addictions. One of my highest success levels is in addictions. Of-course, addiction comes in many styles and forms, but they have a lot in common. Many addictions are a poor attempt to cover up something one is wanting to run or hide from. It does not take long to find that out by just listening to you. Then we go to work resolving that hang-up. I have learned the power of listening, it, in and of itself is a great healer.

Counseling Psychologist

2000 P Street, NW, Suite 200, Washington, District of Columbia 20036 | 410-961-7192

At Counseling Solutions, LLC, I treat substance abuse utilizing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and 12-Step Principles. Individuals who are experiencing life problems due to their alcohol or drug use are appropriate for these types of outpatient, weekly therapy. The substance use may be impairing relationships, job performance, health, or a general sense of well-being. For those who require detoxification due to withdrawal symptoms, it is essential that a period of closely monitored inpatient treatment and/or a period of residential treatment be completed prior to outpatient therapy

Psychologist

2000 P Street NW . Suite 412, washington, The District of Columbia 20036 | 301-641-8406

I work with a variety of addictions - work, food (binge eating), exercise, sex, drugs, and alcohol. My focus is combining compassion with realism. Addictions evolve because of a predisposition combined with a great need. Among other things, this need may be a powerful emptiness, sense of despair, crushing engulfment, desire to feel alive and powerful or a desire to disappear. By addressing the self-destructive behavior, the underlying purpose of the addiction , and the environment which reinforces the addiction, great changes may be made.

Life can present you with difficult situations which are hard to process and move past. These challenges are not on your timeline and affect everything. Having worked in many healthcare settings, I am familiar navigating life-changing events and grief.

While most treatment approaches to addiction include 12 step programs, rehabs, and now sober living houses, Grey Matters International, Inc. provides a wildly successful alternative to traditional models of addiction treatment----that keeps the brain in mind. That is, talking to the conscious brain while the primal brain is deciding things even before you are consciously aware? Well, that is the problem to solve in addiction. We have the solution utilizing a new cutting edge neuroscience-centered brain rebalancing system. Contact kevin@kevinflemingphd.com or call 877-606-6161.

Recovering from addiction requires support, commitment, motivation and time. Committing to sobriety involves changes in how you think about yourself, and how you deal with stress and relationships. I believe treatment should address your specific needs and focus on more than the addiction. Success also depends on addressing the reasons for the addiction. I use a comprehensive and holistic approach that also helps you: enhance your motivation to participate in treatment; develop strategies for coping with cravings; learn skills to avoid and prevent relapse; learn to develop a healthier life-style; and address other health problems such as depression or anxiety. I also provide and recommend additional services such as support groups and group therapy,...(view profile to read more)

Addiction is an intense yearning to again and again experience the effects of repeating a behavior or using a substance. Whether it is alcohol addiction or internet addiction, the loss of control and the constant cravings affect one’s physical health, emotional well-being, and social life. The goal of therapy is to help you break the current routine - to help you develop and practice strategies for impulse control and build a healthy, balanced, productive, and rewarding lifestyle.

Robert Castle, M.S., LCPC, NCC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

Rockville, Maryland 20850 | 410-702-5138

To help you manage addictive behaviors and dependence on any mood altering substances, we will start with reviewing the history of your addictive behavior and the impact it has on your relationships, health, employment, and functioning. Sometimes addictive substances or behaviors have served to mask underlying sources of pain, such as mood instability, anxiety, relationship stressors, or emptiness and loss of meaning. These underlying factors can be addressed in psychotherapy along with learning new resources for managing addictive behaviors, such as educational lectures, family therapy, 12 step groups, and/or referral to a medical doctor for medication that aids your overall recovery.

Are you wondering if your use of alcohol and/or other chemical substances is beginning to take control of your life? Chances are you started drinking or using so that you could cope with life, but now you're finding that it's getting harder and harder to cope. It can be overwhelming to think about quitting and staying quit. I can help you to assess your chemical use and decide what, if any, changes you need to make. I also offer an ear acupuncture treatment that lessens cravings and withdrawal symptoms while also helping to manage depression and anxiety.

8975 Guilford Rd., Suite 170, Columbia, Maryland 21046 | 410-206-8573

I see any addictive behavior as a coping strategy that also causes harm in some way. People try all sorts of things in attempt to make themselves feel more comfortable, less anxious, or happier. We are all doing the best we can with what we have available to us at the time, and sometimes our "best" doesn't really help. In fact, it often causes harm to ourselves and others. I help clients understand the root causes of their addictive behavior, and how to meet their needs on a deeper level in healthy ways rather than destructive ways.

Many people attempt to avoid painful issues by taking pills, powders, or liquids and then waiting for the desired effect - an alteration of their consciousness. There are more positive ways to alter consciousness without turning to alcohol, drugs, food, gambling, sex, television, work, or any other activity that when used to excess, has a destructive impact on your life. Learning to change your mood by healthier more active methods involves some effort and motivation on your part but recovery from addiction is possible. We have experienced substance abuse professionals to help you make the changes you want to make

10632 Little Patuxent Pkwy Suite 313, Columbia, Maryland 21044 | 443-538-1247

I have co-run an addiction program serving people with alcohol and drug problems. I have often found that people are self medicating when they are using drugs, covering other problems such as anxiety or depression. In these cases both the addiction and underlying problems need to be addressed. I specialize in relapse prevention. Living one day at a time is what we all need to be doing.

Deborah Cole, Psy.D.

Licensed Psychologist

8840 Stanford Blvd. , Ste. 4000, Columbia, Maryland 21045 | 410-381-7551

I work with overspending and sexual addiction. Both of these are what are called "process addictions." With spending without much forethought and with sexual behavior regardless of consequences, lives are out of control. With both of these impulse disorders, I recommend 12 step groups as well as individual therapy with me. The groups help the person see their problems as they hear other people's stories and they also give hope and "sponsors." Our treatment helps them find out what needs they are really trying to meet and get in touch with their real feelings rather than "doping"with overspending or with sexually acting out. Note: I do not treat alcoholism or drug addiction.

Ashburn Psychological Services

44110 Ashburn Shopping Plaza, Suite 251, Ashburn, Virginia 20147 | 703-723-2999

Ashburn Psychological Services has therapists and doctors available to assist in your recovery from addiction. Addiction to alcohol, substances, sex and pornography, gambling, computers and media and foods are some of the areas that can be addressed in treatment. A bio-psycho-social model to addiction treatment is widely seen as being a successful approach. With this approach, a client's addiction is understood and treated in the context of his or her biology, psychology and social reality. At times, cognitive-behavior therapy and other counseling approaches are enough to bring about change and improvements, while at other times, medication may be warranted. We are here to help.

Insight Into Action Therapy

44340 Premier Plaza; Suite 230, Ashburn, Virginia 20147 | 703-646-7664

There is a spectrum of substance use. Not all use is addiction. It doesn't always end in "jail, institutions, or death." Our goal is to help you figure out how drugs or alcohol have impacted you and your life. Then we will individualize a treatment plan for you. This may include a combination of individual, family, or group therapy and drug/alcohol testing. It may even include a program of harm reduction called alcohol moderation. Mutual support groups do not work for everyone so we do not require them. Don't let a bad experience with a rigid program stop you from getting help.

virtual therapy, Maryland 21208 | 443-803-3848

In a relaxing and productive session, you will learn how to repattern and take charge of your mind and body. We no longer use labeling words like "addict" or "alcoholic" or "relapse" or "recovery". We don't view it as an incurable disease. We teach you the psycho-social-neuro perspective of addiction. We teach terms like living optimally and re-patterning. We view permanent behavior change as a byproduct of reaching deep levels of neural patterning that change your belief system. Genetics may influence some of us but the answers to heal and live well are the same for everyone no matter who your relatives were! Learn how to live optimally and call today.

Addictions range from alcohol and drugs to internet, money, gambling and many other challenges. Do you find yourself struggling to get back on your feet only to fall right back down on your face even harder than the last fall. You cannot do it alone. Willpower is helpful but it is not enough for many forms of addiction. It is time for you to admit that you need help and support to get to recovery.
