Release the chains of addiction that bind you! With counseling, we can help you find motivation in quitting your addiction, maintain sobriety and create new ways to enjoy life again. We treat all kinds of addictions: Alcohol, opiates (Oxycontin, vicodin, heroin, etc), gambling, internet sex, shopping and food. Not all additions require absolute abstinence. In the cases of non-opiate addictions, harm reduction therapy is our go to. Whereas Alcoholics Anonymous has ONLY 2% success rate, Harm Reduction Therapy takes a different approach - it recognizes that life time absence is impossible for 98% of people. Instead of banning everything, we reduce the harm done by those substances!

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, Certified Family Life Educator

Addiction is more than a behavioral problem. Dysfunctional brain circuitry changes are associated with the disease of addiction, impacting all realms of life: physical, psychological, emotional, and social. In addition to medical care, counseling is critical for recovery, relapse prevention, and re-creation of personal balance. Counseling will assist in addressing the psychological and social factors associated with relapse. Recovery and balance must integrate effectively adapting to typical life stress, environmental or situational triggers, and social networks. Counseling can help with other problems that contribute to addiction such as family, work, depression, or grief.

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.

Rebecca Esser, MA, NBCC, LPC.

Clinical Therapist

501 6th Ave. Suite 8, Rochelle, Illinois

Do the chains of addiction leave you feeling lonely and depressed? If so - there's a reason - and there's hope. Addiction is a disease in the brain, and it can happen to anyone. I work with clients to understand and change the disease of addiction. Clients will learn to identify their underlying issues, emotions, and triggers through harm reduction and motivational counseling. You'll develop new coping skills , learn the art of mindfulness and develop alternative ways of handling their thoughts, feelings and emotions, without slipping back into addiction.

Addiction Counselor

Dan Blair, LMFT, LCPC, NCPC

Marriage Counselor

600 Dakota St., Crystal Lake, Illinois

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.

Addiction Counselor

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

333 N. Randall Road, Suite 20, St. Charles, Illinois

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.
