When you feel a lack of control, and the consequences are affecting your personal, professional, and/or physical life, our addiction specialist(s) can help.
- Maybe gambling used to be a fun way to pass the time, but is now causing financial problems and a strain in your relationships
- Alcohol and/or Drugs may have been a way to relieve stress or to socialize with others. However you are now struggling with how much and how often you use and/or drink, and the consequences that have come along with this. Past trauma is also a reason that many people use. Addressing this trauma (if and when you are ready) can help to ease the pull that substances have on your life.
- Pornography addiction is very common and can lead to isolation and difficulty in relationships. The level of shame associated with this can prevent you from reaching out for help. However, working with an understanding and compassionate counselor can help release this shame, and you can work together on lessening your dependance on pornography.
- Video Games are a lot of fun. But they can also become very addictive. You may find you are missing school, work, or social activities because of video games. A trained therapist can help you discern how video games best fit in your life, and come up with strategies to decrease the negative consequences caused by video games.
