Have you wondered what addiction counseling is all about?
Do you have a love/hate relationship with drugs or alcohol?
Do you often need to feel better with the use of drugs or alcohol?
Do other people tell you that you drink/use too much?
Do you need to recover/cope with from being in a family of users?
Do you often use because you can’t say, “NO”?
Do you need someone you can trust to help you with addiction?
Some people may have addictions with substances, alcohol, food and/or exercise. Addiction can oftentimes occur with depression, anxiety, ADHD, and other mental health illnesses. Maybe you use drugs and/or alcohol in order to cope with stressors in life? Sometimes, that works for a while. Then the very thing that once helped you feel better now causes your life be a lot worse? Addiction is often a downward spiral that is hard to pull yourself out of. And it can be difficult to ask for the help of those close to you. But, sometimes you just can’t do it on your own. And that’s OK! I can help.
In addiction counseling you may benefit in some of the following ways:
- Get an alternate perspective in a comforting non-judgemental environment
- Navigate the medical and moral models of addiction in our culture
- Identify triggers that have made drugs and alcohol an easy coping mechanism
- Learn new ways to explore your life and the problems that present
- Learn new coping mechanisms and why they work for you
- Cope with past trauma, abandonment, and relationships
- Connect you with local support groups that have your religious orientation, style, and personality in mind
