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.

So called “experts” on “sexual addiction” erroneously take clients with paraphilic disorders into treatment. These paraphilic disorders, such as voyeuristic, exhibitionistic, frotteuristic , masochism, pedophilic, fetishistic, and nonconsensual behavior disorders are wrongly placed in “sexual addiction” treatment under the excuse that these behaviors often include sexual obsession. The “sex addiction” “expert” is then unable to adequately treat these, by definition, deviant behaviors.

— Danielle Proch, Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor in Oldsmar, FL

This kind of therapy assumes that any addiction is a secondary diagnosis. The addiction is a way of self-medicating, meaning there is emotional pain underneath it. so if u stop the addiction, then the emotional material under it will be assessable, if the person is in therapy. Igf they are not, then it is most likely a new addiction will form to take the place of the previous one.
