Addiction Counseling

Are you or a loved one struggling with addiction? We can help. For most people, counseling is a fundamental aspect of drug abuse treatment. Cognitive behavioral therapy and family therapy are great places to start.

Addiction is more than a physical dependence on drugs. Your addiction can be impacted by factors in your life such as stress, environmental cues, and social interactions can be common causes for relapse. After detox, there is a high risk of relapse. Counseling can help with escaping cravings while learning how to live a drug-free life.

There are several counseling therapies available for prescription drug abuse. No method has been proven to be more effective than another, and no approach is going to be right for everyone. The perfect treatment plan for you will be tailored by your therapist to fit your needs while helping you tackle your addiction.

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) can teach you how to recognize moods, thoughts, and situations that may encourage drug abuse. Your therapist will help strategize with you to avoid triggers, and swap negative thoughts and feelings to healthier ones that will help with consistent sobriety.

The techniques that you will learn in cognitive behavioral therapy will stay with you throughout your life.

Because of this, CBT can be a great method for drug abuse treatment. Our therapists try to understand and enhance an addicted person's natural motivation for change.

Addiction strongly affects the user's family. Relationships with family and friends are crucial for an effective treatment plan. Some counseling methods may include the addicted person’s family members. This is important because family can be a force for change and choosing to include them can increase the likelihood that a person will continue therapy.

Usually, patients will have continuing maintenance therapy appointments. This is because long-term treatments help to stop relapses in their tracks.
