Addiction Counseling

Addiction can take many forms and can be experienced with both substances (drugs and alcohol, for example) and behaviors (such as gambling). Typically, addiction involves repeating an activity despite the problems or negative consequences it is causing in your life. Addiction can cause changes in the brain’s wiring that make it difficult to stop the drug or behavior. But the good news is, you don’t have to figure it out on your own. If you or someone you know is suffering from an addiction, contact one of our addiction counseling specialists today to get help.

Addiction is my primary specialization. I approach treatment from a biopsychosocial model - that there are likely biological factors (like physical dependence), psychological factors (like poor coping habits and other mental health concerns), and social factors (either isolation or being surrounded by others who are also using substances) that hold the addictive behavior in place. We'll work together to unravel all these factors and help move you forward.

Oftentimes there is a reason for people's addiction, and so I not only work on helping clients change their current behaviors, but also on the underlying reasons and past trauma. As with other mental health challenges, I offer a compassionate and non-judgmental approach, helping clients to offer themselves compassion and acceptance that is needed for persistent change

— Krissy Moses, Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor in Winter Park, FL

Through expertise in both private practice and community mental health settings as a Certified Alcohol & Drug Counselor (CADC), I've learned that loss of control, surrender of the will to a craving doesn’t have to lead to prolonged suffering. I have helped many renew a sense of “self”, repurposed life.

Addictions (substances or behaviors) are all defenses based in physical and/or psychological pain reduction. If we can eliminate the cause of the pain, the need for the addiction can go as well. While this may sound simple, that doesn’t mean it’s easy or painless to do. We will address the pains that lead you to your addiction and work through the obstacles to abstinence and sobriety, if that is what you want, whether you choose to do so via a 12-step program or without it.

— Cathy Armstrong, Licensed Professional Counselor in Corpus Christi, TX

Addiction counseling is an approach to challenge the physical, emotional, and mental struggles of the disease in order to live a full life in recovery. I utilize an eclectic approach for addiction counseling involving motivational interviewing, DBT, CBT, and 12 - steps to help the individuals modify behaviors for recovery, how to cope with addictive thinking and behaviors, and develop intimate connection in relationships while in sobriety.

— Sarah Underbrink, Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Plano, TX

I have worked in four treatment centers over the last 28 years. I see a huge interplay between issues related to addiction and trauma. I believe that for some people their path to addiction came as a means to self-medicate pain. I also believe that there is a strong physiological component to addiction and it doesn't reflect weakness of will. I support 12-step recovery but also alternative self -help groups such as Refuge Recovery which has a Buddhist meditation component.

— Deb Dettman, Clinical Social Worker in Chicago, IL
