Personal Addiction Counseling

More often than not, drug addictions start with the experimental use of a drug in social situations. For some people, the drug use becomes more frequent. As time passes, a person may feel the need to use more of a drug to get their desired high, and soon a person may need the drug to simply feel “good.”

Drug addiction symptoms and behaviors include, among others:

  • Feeling the need to use the drug regularly, which can be daily or multiple times a day
  • Having intense urges for the drug
  • Over time, needing more of the drug to get the same effect
  • Making certain that you maintain a supply of the drug
  • Not meeting obligations and work responsibilities
  • Doing things you wouldn’t normally do to get the drug, such as stealing
  • Focusing more and more time and energy on getting and using the drug
  • Experiencing withdrawal symptoms when not using the drug
  • Failed attempts to quit using the drug

If you can relate to any of the above symptoms or behaviors, it may be time to consider addiction counseling.

As an addiction counselor, I will address the symptoms of your addiction and the related areas of impaired functioning. Together we’ll structure the time and content of your ongoing recovery.

Questions or Concerns about Personal Addiction Counseling?

Am I even addicted?

We know how hard it’s to take a deep look at yourself and ask this question.

We also know that if it’s something that’s coming up for you, it may be helpful for us to at least look at it together.  During our first session, we can figure out what’s going on and come up with the best plan to help you achieve your goals.

Will I always be an addict?

There are different schools of thought on this.  We believe that addiction rewires our brain, but we can always rewire it in new and healthier ways.

Will I always have to be in therapy for this?

Everyone’s road to recovery is different.  You and I will collaboratively determine the most appropriate course of care and support for you.  For many, the road to recovery requires a lifetime of support and therapy.  For others, it can look quite different.

I believe that there are many paths to successful recovery that will work with your goals and desires, and ensure you can make the life changes you want to make. Contact me today for a free consultation.
