Substance Abuse Therapy In Phoenix, AZ
If you or someone you love struggles with chemical addictions and substance abuse, there is hope. There are things you can do to conquer your demons, repair your relationships, and get on the road to recovery. Resistance to treatment is common, as the road to recovery can be long and grueling. When in the throws of addiction there tends to be an intrusive and extremely intense focus on using, to the point that it is, or soon will be, completely taking over your life. No matter where you are in that process, I am here to help get you, and those who love you, through it.
I know it might not feel like it right now, but with the right plan you absolutely can and will recover. Addressing substance abuse, alcoholism, and drug addiction is never easy, and it’s even more difficult when you’re also struggling with mental health problems. Since this tends to happen quite often, it is clear that these co-morbid conditions are interrelated and may fuel each other. This is why it is critical to seek effective treatment that addresses your unique and individual needs. Whether this is the first time you are seeking professional help, just getting out of a treatment program, or experiencing a relapse, I can help you to fully explore the role that addiction plays in your life. I strongly believe that recovery from substance abuse simply cannot be a “one size fits all” approach. As your addiction therapist, I will meet you where you are and more importantly, help you create a realistic treatment plan to get you where you want and deserve to be. Together we will work to break down the barriers that are keeping you stuck, and in doing so you will be amazed by the amount of opportunities you will have to recreate your life, clean and sober.
There are many stigmas attached to chemical addictions that often deter people from getting the treatment they need. I realize how overwhelming it can be trying to figure out what level of care is best for you. The most important step to take is to just take a step, any step, and if you’ve found your way here it means you have already completed this and I will figure out the rest with you. Once you are on the road to recovery, maintaining individual therapy will help you to address any deeper issues you may have in order to better understand what lead you to your addiction in the first place. You will also learn to recognize any potential risk factors for relapse, and develop the tools you will need to cope with life’s inevitable stressful situations now that you are living life in recovery.
I will provide you with a safe space to openly talk about your struggles with addiction, as well as a place to help guide your family and loved ones through the recovery process. Our relationships with other people greatly determine whether addiction or relapse is likely, therefore having a strong support system and teaching them the best ways to support you will not only make your recovery stronger, it can also present invaluable opportunities in healing for everyone. Building positive coping strategies can increase self-efficacy which helps to not only prevent relapse, but provide a strong and stable foundation for long term recovery.
