Addiction & Recovery

If you or your loved one have yet to arrive at the place where detoxification and residential outpatient treatment are needed, individual and family therapy may help to divert the “on-coming train”.  I have over 30 years of experience working with the recovery community and I have had success guiding individuals to take proactive measures to take back control before their addiction takes over.

You may have already been through treatment and need more support to maintain sobriety.  Stopping substance use and staying stopped are two different things.  It is important to understand how addiction (attitudes, thoughts, and behaviors) manifests in you after you’ve stopped using.  You have to identify the recovery-based symptoms before you can figure out how to stabilize and/or interrupt them.  Once you know what they are and can stabilize them, you will see that they don’t surface as often and don’t last as long.  That success is the foundation for the hope needed to stay the course and prevent relapse.

“I think that the power is the principle. The principle of moving forward, as though you have the confidence to move forward, eventually gives you confidence when you look back and see what you’ve done.”
