We're all addicted, to a substance, behavior, belief system - anything that keeps us from having to drop down and actually feel, to address our deeper truths, wounds, needs.
Is addiction recovery even possible? Yes, but not without a tremendous amount of support. The first step is of course recognizing the problem - is this a subtle sleight of hand you play in your brain to avoid what you sould be looking at, to avoid embracing the fullness of who you were meant to be? The beginnings of an uncomfortable, hidden reliance you have, maybe just needing that wine after work a bit too often, or a full-blown addiction?
If you or a loved one are all too familiar with addiction and recovery, and continue to struggle, I and my colleagues can help. I've worked in this field for years, and the one thing I see consistently is how valuable, and difficult to find, an aftercare program can be. This is what I and my group of treatment specialists offer - a counseling-based, integrative, tailor-made program to help you recover your life.
Everyone knows the brain is involved in addictions, but what most don't know is how much that's true even early on, as the addictive behaviors are beginning to take hold.
The mind & spirit cannot truly recover unless we add physical health & vitality, which goes far beyond repairing the brain.
A foundation of meaning, different of course for everyone, is a cruciql piece of any lasting recovery.
