Common Symptoms

The prevalence of experiencing Addiction in our lifetime.

Addiction and substance abuse are the top two reasons that bring people to therapy. When discussing substance abuse, the term “substances”: refers to intoxicants, which are the most commonly abused, including alcohol (!), marijuana (!), caffeine, and nicotine, to name a few. Substance abuse often stems from trying a substance once, then developing an experience-based sensation-seeking behavior around the substance.

Abuse is also referred to as dependency, which can range to different levels depending on the individual. The below four points signify the common signs of addiction.

The benefits of seeking Addiction Counseling

Suffering from any form of addiction creates a sense of confusion, causing us to minimize the impact of the substance on our personal life, professional life, and overall health. By building healthy coping mechanisms and identifying potential sources of urge triggers and causes of dependency, therapy can help you re-evaluate your relationship with substances.

Getting help on time can prevent many issues and complications. For this reason, we made the process easier for you to reach out to us and let us handle the rest for you.

Our Approach

What technique do we use to treat addiction?

Our clinicians are trained to provide an eclectic approach to treating addiction. The best form of therapy must fit your unique circumstances and specific needs. While some may benefit from Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), others might benefit from Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) or Solution Focused Therapy (SFT). Our therapists work hard to decern the best course of treatment for you. Further, we believe in a collaborative approach to therapy. We value our client’s autonomy and input in their therapy goals. We explore the following topics during treatment for addiction. 

Addiction Counseling can help you

Substance abuse can result from trauma (!), used as a coping mechanism, or a result of one-time use. There is no direct cause for substance abuse, as there is no one right treatment, but therapy is a good start. While other steps might need to be involved, such as detoxification, therapy is the stepping stone in the right and healthy direction. Reach out today to schedule a session with us.
