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.

I use a 12-step model frequently but understand that approach is not for everyone. I have used CBT to treat addictions. I do not "force" 12-step meetings.

— Jamie Glick, Therapist in Castle Rock, CO

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.

Seeking out support to move away from using or other destructive behaviors can be daunting; it can be hard to find a good fit even when you're feeling ready to make the leap into changing. I'm not the most typical therapist in the field ~ I'm here to support you, offer up choices and options, look for patterns in what's happening in your life and recovery efforts. I'm not here to tell you there's only one way to do 'this.' There is no magic formula ~ let's find what works for you.

Working with active addicts and recovery addicts, I have found the most beautiful souls that have found solace in a substance that went from solace to chaos. I'm here to help you unravel the nasty web that substances leashed, address core issues that initiated the use and work towards relapse prevention and abstinence maintenance. One moment at a time, one step at a time.

I assist clients struggling with alcohol/substance related issues. I welcome clients in various stages of change and support 12-step, non 12-step, harm reduction and moderation. I believe alcohol/substance usage is a symptom of a deeper unresolved issue. I assist my clients to identify the core issue creating emotional distress that contributes to triggers and cravings of using substances. Many of my clients have achieved long-term sobriety and improved the quality of their life.

Addictions counseling is a process of building nets of support around you while you shift your harmful coping mechanisms into ways of living that are sustainable. This process includes education, inner work, support system building, and a willingness to keep moving forward honestly. It is not a solo adventure.
