Walking the tightrope of addiction
Addiction is a cunning, baffling disease that slowly oppresses and takes control of those it affects. It is a family disease -- everyone in a family affected by one family member's addiction. Addiction transcends all socioeconomic, professional, racial, gender, and age boundaries.
Some people suffer from addictions that do not involve drinking or using any drugs. Using sex, pornography, or food (either too much or too little) to numb your feelings can be as destructive to mind and body as using substances -- and can just as easily lead to the loss of relationships, jobs, self-respect, children, etc.
The mission of all treatment is to help people find a way out of this progressive bondage of self-hate, shame, guilt, and the pain that comes with living with addiction and trauma.
With hard work, dedication, and counseling, addicts can treat this disease, reaching new heights in a life full of hope and graditude.
I create a safe, supportive environment to enable my patients to face these dependencies. I offer my patients a full assessment of the extent of their addiction, and help them learn how to get (and stay) clean and sober. My patients will learn Relapse Prevention and new coping skills for a world without intoxicating substances or addictive behavior.
