Substance Use

What is substance use?

Substance user or addiction, involves the harmful or problematic consumption of substances such as alcohol, drugs, or medications. This pattern of use can lead to negative consequences in various aspects of one’s life, including physical health, relationships, work, and overall well-being. It often involves a compulsion to use the substance, a loss of control over consumption, and continued use despite harmful consequences. Substance use can stem from various factors, including stress, trauma, peer pressure, or underlying mental health issues

How can my therapist assist with my substance use?

In our therapeutic journey, I provide a safe and confidential space where clients can openly discuss their struggles, triggers, and the underlying reasons behind your substance use. We work collaboratively to explore and understand the complex psychological, emotional, and environmental factors driving these behaviors. Through evidence-based approaches like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Motivational Interviewing, we develop coping strategies and healthier mechanisms for managing stress, cravings, and triggers. Together, we set achievable goals and identify the underlying issues that contribute to substance use. The therapeutic process fosters self-awareness and self-empowerment, enabling clients to regain control over their lives, promote sobriety, and enhance overall well-being.
