The purpose of Addiction Counseling is to help the client identify for him or herself if there is an addiction present. If this is the case, a variety of cognitive behavioral techniques are utilized as well as mindfulness exercises to help with focusing and how to cope with difficult emotions in healthy ways to become abstinent. In addition, there is a focus on stengths, and what the client has done in the past to abstain from using the substance of choice. Thus, the client can try and implement at least some of these techniques again and stay away from triggers and past negative behaviors that led to relapse. There is also focus on self-esteem building and how to prevent relapse in the future once the client is abstinent.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist & Registered Psychotherapist

Clifton, New Jersey 07011 | 833-444-4049

Addiction brings pain and chaos individuals, couples and families. I see addictions as poor and destructive coping mechanisms and work with individuals and couples to interrupt the behavior and work to process the pain underlying the behavior. I am very familiar with 12 step programs and CSAT work that help individuals and couples make sense out of the addiction. I also work within a complementary framework of attachment and the importance of strong close inter-dependent, not co-dependent relationships with the most important people in one's life, family. Call me for a consult about your particular needs and situation.

An excellent way to understand addiction is that it is a problem of self-regulation. This might be a problem of self-discipline, resilience, self-soothing, attention, etc. Many folks use drugs of choice to provide functions they feel helpless to do for themselves. The therapeutic alliance becomes the provider of regulatory capacities not internalized early in life. A safe and secure attachment permits the patient to cultivate a healthy dependency on the therapist without re-living the fears of judgments and abandonments that interfered with them depending on caregivers who may or may not have been able to model and instruct what was needed.

If you are struggling with addiction, you know it is no simple feat to quit. Beyond the physical dependence that you may be fighting, there are all kinds of psychological factors that come into play. At the Lukin Center, we use cognitive behavioral therapy and emotionally focused therapy to target the many contextual factors that keep one dependent on a substance. We work to address cravings and triggers, ambivalence towards quitting, and other underlying emotional issues that may have led to drug use in the first place. You are not alone. If you want help quitting, our expert therapists can provide a supportive and accepting environment to take that first step.

Addictions of all kinds, drugs, alcohol, food, shopping, sex and gambling, are used as maladative ways of coping and trying to find some joy and happiness in life. Unsatisfying relationships, career choices, financial issues and lack of meaning can exacerbate addictive behaviors. Although addictions, especially drug, alcohol and tobacco, are notoriously hard to treat and relapse is common, there are still many effective treatments for addictions and many people have overcome their addictions permanently.

This is an area of treatment where I have seen many miracles. Successfully moving beyond substance dependence and abuse is not a matter of will power and character. Paradoxically, being strong willed and independent can work against recovery; addictions are very 'sticky' and five decades of research and experience confirms that attempting to keep them in check without help does not work. Twelve step programs (AA, NA, CA, etc) are the ‘gold standard’ of recovery, and are tried and true methods of achieving lasting abstinence. I possess a strong 12 Step program background, but know that not everybody can walk into a meeting and feel at home. Come for a consultation and see what is possible.

Overall, I treat addiction much like I would treat any other crisis. I would do addiction assessment to make sure I'm the right person to treat you. I'd identify triggers, what makes you more likely to repeat the addictive behavior. I can work with substance use and sex addiction. My general belief is that addiction is a way that people avoid dealing with other people and their problems. It can be a learned behavior. In order to stop doing the offensive behavior, it is important to focus on what you do want to do. This is the process of recovery, and I will do my best to facilitate this.

As a recovering person myself, I have a firsthand knowledge of the power of addiction and the joys of sobriety. I enjoy working with other people who have the courage to face their addiction, understand what is driving it and who are willing to commit to living a sober life. Living sober is a challenging task, and is best accomplished through education, exploration of triggers and alternative coping strategies, and the support of others who encourage your recovery.

12 Step programs, while seemingly ubiquitous, are not based on cognitive behavioral therapy. Our work together uses actual psychological approaches based on evidence to help you get you back in the driver's seat and not your addiction. You are a person, not an addict. You might HAVE an addiction, and we'll work on that- but you're a totally flawed person, just like the rest of us. If extra support is needed, we recommend SMART RECOVERY groups, not any addictions work based on religion or asking for help from a "higher power".

Stop Drinking Expert offers an alternative to embarrassing twelve step group meetings, expensive inpatient treatment centers and ineffective willpower. Our approach to treating alcohol addiction is to start with the subconscious conditioning that has gradually built up around the drug. Often addicts are only told that they have an alcohol use disorder and must never drink again. The problem with this abrupt form of 'treatment' is the client remains psychologically anchored to using alcohol as a coping mechanism and as a tool to help alleviate negative emotional states. The Stop Drinking Expert method helps the problem drinker to understand what is driving their need to drink.

44 East 12 Street, New York, New York 10003 | 212-242-5052

I have come to know addictions are initially attempts at self-medication for a troubled soul. Initially, the addictive activity relieves the pain when there didn’t seem to be another option or resource. This pain relief becomes an addiction when a person develops an inner compulsion (unnoticed at first), which begins to negatively impact other areas of life. By this point, an insidious denial creeps in to protect the addiction and the chaos, both inner and outer, now runs your life. For the addiction recovery, one shoe does not fit all. Our focus in working together is to relieve present suffering and pave the way for the most graceful movement possible toward abstinence or harm reduction.

You went after work to hang out with friends. You had some drinks or you got high. Everything was fine in the beginning until you noticed that just stopping was no longer easy. I believe that people can reduce or completely stop. The choice is yours to make. There are consequences to working me; you may decide you don't need to be high or drunk to enjoy yourself.

There are all kinds of addictions, from substance abuse to internet pornography. In each case, the bottom line is that a person is dealing with feelings of depression, anger or anxiety in a destructive way. They drink, gamble or look at pornography whenever they feel stress, but do not face the feelings that are causing the stress and work through them. I encourage addicts to make use of 12-step programs in combination with psychotherapy. When they stop denying and commit themselves to both, they quickly make progress.

Addictions are a very painful form of emotional and physical suffering that can lead people into having profound feelings of shame and guilt and an unyielding sense of inadequacy and failure. The individual may have tried innumerable times on their own to stop the compulsive and driven pressures occurring in their addictions only to find discouragement and feelings of failure when addictive behaviors relentlessly continue. One often finds that relationships and jobs may deteriorate or even be lost from the preoccupation with the addiction, and legal problems may occur. If you or a loved one finds they are suffering from an addiction, please seek addiction therapy.
