Addiction Counseling

Addiction Counseling

Addiction presents many barriers to leading a fulfilling life. It adds layers of self-destruction and dependence to the mix which often results in detrimental consequences. Even under the best of circumstances, maintaining a balanced and healthy lifestyle, complete with authentic and meaningful relationships, can be quite challenging. Living your best life means learning how to cope with life’s difficulties, free from the limitations imposed by addiction to unhealthy substances or behaviors.

Addiction involves the use of substances such as alcohol, cocaine, inhalants, opioids, and nicotine. It also includes other detrimental behaviors such as gambling and pornography. Numerous scientific studies strongly suggest a neurobiological connection between the use of addictive substances and exhibiting behaviors. In both instances, neural pathways of reward and reinforcement are triggered, resulting in the release of the feel-good chemical dopamine.

Take heart.

It's never too late to change.

Addiction affects the brain’s decision-making functionality. This means that many addicted individuals aren’t even aware of the devastating ways that their behavior causes problems for themselves and others. All-to-often, the relentless pursuit of pleasure leads to an unhealthy imbalance in an individual’s behavior. Addiction-based counseling can be a great help.

Our mental health counselors specialize in treating people who suffer from addiction to substances, as well as unhealthy behaviors. We work diligently with the client and their families to help them understand the nature of their addictions. This empowers them to live a more productive and satisfying existence. Discover a deeper sense of fulfillment and understanding with addiction-based counseling. It’s never too late to become who you want to be.
