DRUG  & ALCOHOL ADDICTION

You Can Overcome the Vicious Cycle of a Drug or Alcohol Addiction That is
Keeping You From Living the Life You Want

I can help you take control of your addiction

Maybe your addiction started out as a solution to numb out painful feelings, or to deal with the anger and resentment you might feel.

However the long-term impact of your substance abuse can be extremely damaging. Perhaps you feel your substance dependence has made your world become very small. All your time and energy revolves around your drug of choice.

Maybe you’ve reached the stage where it is interfering with your relationships, your work is suffering, and physically you don’t feel ok. You have lost respect for yourself and the respect of those around you. You feel worthless and trapped.

You don’t want to keep doing it but you can’t stop. You are being driven by your alcohol or drug dependence and it is destroying your life.

Maybe you might be experiencing the following

  • Relationship breakdown
  • Health problems
  • Loneliness and isolation
  • DepressionAnxiety
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Legal problems
  • Conflict with friends and family
  • Job loss
  • Memory blackouts and/or confusion
  • Shame and embarrassment over things you have done when under the influence
  • Several failed attempts to control or stop your substance use.

If you identified with any of the above experiences, it might be time to seek help.Counselling in conjunction with a 12-step program can help you to move out of the pain of addiction and into Recovery. What you need is the support.

12- step fellowships such as Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous provide unique peer support and insight as you can become part of a group of people who know firsthand your suffering and what the journey forward looks like. I can put you in touch with your local 12-step group as I believe lots of support equals a healthy recovery.

How can I help you with your drug or alcohol addiction?

I offer a respectful, non-judgemental and holistic approach to your treatment. This environment will allow you to process difficult feelings and make changes to detractive patterns of thinking and behaving. Having worked with many recovering addicts I have gained a great deal of experience in treating chemical addictions. I understand the dark place you are in and how to help you move out of it.

My experience has taught me the tools you need to move into recovery. I can help you to stop drinking or using by giving you strategies to overcome cravings and to prevent relapse. We can also work together to get to the bottom of why you started to abuse your substance in the first place. We can address the issues that might be getting in the way of your recovery.
I can help you to rebuild your self-esteem and self-worth so you can move into a place of understanding and eventually peace within yourself. Because I work alongside 12-step programs I can give you access to resources outside me in your community which you need especially in the early stages of your recovery.
