Addictions & Substance Use

Do you feel that you want to have a drink, use drugs, or gamble to escape from arguments with friends/family, difficulty at work, and/or sadness?    

These activities that when engaged in frequently may negatively impact your day-to-day life (e.g., social life, occupation,/job, school, relationships).  Call me to learn more about managing feelings and relationships.  We can discuss new coping skills in place drinking, using drugs, or engaging in risky behaviors.  Together, we will develop a comprehensive treatment plan, which may include recovery meetings in the community, social support, and targeted psychotherapy (e.g., Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy).  I kindly ask that you do not come to session.  under the influence, as this is a safety issue, and the session cannot occur.
