Substance Addiction creates a lot of drama for people. And it comes with a good amount of denial. So it's critical that I meet my clients where they are. Teens and adults often process this territory differently so it's important that I've worked with both and understand their particular needs. Soon, we identify the consequences clients have suffered as a result of their drinking/drug use. And we talk about how their belief system changes their ability to see the truth about drugs and alcohol. Using psycho-educational strategies, I help clients make choices and begin to heal their addiction.

In my general practice, I employ many of the same approaches and strategies as the famed "12-Step" program. I have worked with drug and alcohol addicts who are able to function at school and work. I do not work with serious drug or alcohol addictions as I am not so qualified. However, I work with families of functional and non-functional addicts.

Addictions are definitely a family disease. I'm addressing the most prevalent additions facing us today. (Alcoholism and Other Substance Abuse) Heroine is popular again, meth, cocaine......There's no doubt that these addictions have a biological & psychological element to them . It can't be fixed with mere will-power! The family needs recovery too. They need to learn how to not be co-dependent to the addict nor enable their addiction. There're different stages of change.The Counselor needs to meet the client "where they are at". The client needs to be at the readiness stage of change. Motivational Interviewing & changing the Paradigm Shift to recovery are the 2 best tx. approaches we have.

Addictions are hard to accept. Is it a problem? Is it manageable? Hard questions and hard answers. I encourage you to not face it alone. Ultimately, an addiction has to be replaced by relationship, a connection to something bigger and better. If a substance (or a behavior) is starting to take more than it gives, options for recovery are not as scary as you might think.

I work with what is called process addictions including food, gambling, work, sexual, and relationship addictions. My hope is to help the person become healthy and understand the need that is leading to the addiction and constructive ways to meet those needs.

Often people become addicted to drugs, alcohol, gambling, the internet, spending and/or sex to help them feel better or cope with life. These people sometimes do not recognize that they are trying to escape or "self-medicate" from their difficulties or their addiction is a symptom of depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, or ADHD for example. The first steps to successful treatment is admitting that you have an addiction problem and that you need help. It is not uncommon for me to see people who enter into therapy at the request of a loved one. Family or couples therapy may also be necessary to break the cycle of co-dependency.

Additions can often be understood as an effort to numb the pain resulting in one’s failure in their relationship with the self. Feeling unable to experience adequate levels of self-esteem can reflect difficulty in loving and caring for yourself or accepting love from others. Feeling vulnerable and exposed can reflect difficulties in feeling able to protect yourself resulting from difficulties with setting effective boundaries, while losing yourself in the face of other’s beliefs can reflect difficulties with identifying and sharing who you know yourself to be. These and other symptoms can lead you to seeking to numb yourself from the pain of feeling overwhelmed. Reconnect with yourself.

Addiction comes in many shapes and sizes. Often when one stops one addition, it starts up somewhere else. Once sobriety has been achieved, then the individual can begin the work on developmental issues, relationships and codependency. Addiction may never be "cured", but, the client can practice recovery for the rest of their lives without all the deleterious effects of addiction.

Unlike what we commonly believe, addiction is not a chronic brain disease. Rather, it’s a symptom of compulsions — compulsions that help us escape from dealing with our underlying emotional issues. If their underlying issues are not addressed, the addicts will be back through the revolving door, with addiction resurfacing in another form. Please note: what addicts truly seek is not a drink, a substance or a gaming fix itself. The drink or the gaming fix is merely a displacement of something else they really seek. Something interpersonal. The key to therapy lies in coaching them to use proactive actions to address their underlying feelings more directly, instead of running away from them

Although substance abuse issues are primarily recognized as addictions, I am aware of the many other forms of addiction, such as gambling, sex, and internet. My philosophy is that any form of addiciton is simply a way for the individual to cope with their stressors. I would encourage the use of positive coping techniques; I would not be judgmental in any way. I believe that seeking assistance is a show of strength.

Addiction to any substance or behavior can have hugh consequences. Admitting that ones life is out of control is the first step to a successful recovery from any addiction. Learning new coping skills like mindfulness, emotional regulation, interpersonal effectiveness and distress tolerance will equip the client with life long skills that will allow them to live a more fulfilled life. Many times addicts are not running toward something they are running from something. Uncovering what that is might be another key to a solid recovery.
