Drug Addiction Therapy
Besides treating the physical symptoms of substance dependency, drug addiction therapy also needs to provide education to help the person with the substance use disorder and their loved ones. Helping everyone involved understand this disease of the brain and what happens to the mind and body as it heals can ease the path to recovery, providing a more complete picture of the causes and mechanisms of substance use.
Are you concerned about your drinking or drug use?
Are you finding that life is getting more complicated and your substance use may be the reason?
Substance abuse disorders are considered to fall on a spectrum from mild to severe with numerous variations in between. As a result, substance abuse treatment needs to address the person where they are on the spectrum and focus on the unique needs of the individual.
also needs to provide education to help the person with the substance use disorder and their loved ones to help them understand this disease of the brain and what happens to the mind and body as it heals. Some may even want to explore if their social use has tipped over into a more significant early addiction.
There is no one size fits all to substance abuse treatment. That is the benefit to private practice as there is more flexibility in creating a treatment plan that is best suited to that individual and to incorporate a variety of methods and techniques. If a higher level of care or detox is necessary referrals will be made and care will be coordinated. I have the desire and background to help you determine what you want to do about your substance use disorder. I can provide you the tools and skills to be able to make those decisions, cope with the pain of the past and establish a plan for today. Substance abuse treatment is often about baby steps and taking things slowly. The biggest decision is that you are ready for treatment.
