Alcohol and Substance Abuse Counseling
Only one more beer. Only one more pill. Only one more joint or dab. This time is the last time!
Yet, here you are again. Feeling guilt. Feeling shame. Unsure of what to do or how to proceed.
Within you is an OVERWHELMING urge to drink or use despite your best attempts to cut back or quit. It’s the ONLY thing that helps.
Relationships with friends and family are being impacted. Work or school is suffering.
You know you can quit, but at the same time, don’t know if you can quit.
You find yourself using in more and more situations which you didn’t before. Seems like this has really progressed to a point of no return.
You find yourself using in situations where previously you wouldn’t have. When did this happen. How did this happen?
Tired of only feeling “normal” after you’ve had a couple beers, a few pills, or a few hits. Being completely sober feels terrible. Wondering if you could stop, why other people “don’t need it,” and “what’s wrong with me?”
What’s wrong is that you’re in a constant cycle of intoxication and sobriety with few periods of complete abstinence. Your system is thrown off. Physiologically, your brain is craving alcohol and drugs while your mind simultaneously craves sobriety. No wonder this is so hard!
And there are underlying mental health issues that the alcohol and drugs are masking. This could feel like anxiety, depression, feeling disconnected from others, and hopeless.
You don’t have to be an “addict” to have a drug or alcohol problem.
In my opinion, labeling is not the point of my work. If you’d like to identify as an “addict,” great. If not, great.
My mission is to see you succeed and achieve the goals we discuss in our treatment together. Labels should be the least of both of our worries.
If this way of living is no longer satisfying, call me. I can help you.
You’ve suffered enough. Let’s get on the track to recovering and healing. I offer solutions to your complex issues and cannot wait to share them with you!
Therapy helps uncover the larger issues which the drug or alcohol use is burying so much deeper. We dive in and understand what is driving this need for alcohol or drug use. I’ll teach you to be comfortable with yourself and feel amazing without the need for chemical alteration. Without needing to self-medicate.
Imagine that! Imagine not needing anything besides a glass of water and some food to feel alive, normal, and confident.
