"Falling Down Is An Accident. Staying Down Is A Choice."
Why is it so difficult to admit when we have a problem? Is it that we need clarity to see the problem, how else would we recognize it if there is no clarity. Or are we worried about what others will think about us if we choose to admit to our innermost struggles. The guilt the shame, the stares the ridicule from others. How about just simply being accepted to only then be rejected by those we love. These are just some of the feelings and emotions that are at the core of every person whom is dealing with an addiction. While loved ones are waiting, hoping you will change, recover and commit to your sobriety. Through my work over the past several years in IOP programs and with the persistent mentally ill and dually diagnosed I have seen the devastation and how one use, one chase, or one relapse can wreak havoc on your life. We will work together to confront your addictions, choices, decisions and areas in your life that are causing you not to maintain your recovery or better yet how to enhance what you have already recovered. As a person with an addiction identifying those fleeting thoughts and or negative patterns of thinking is a necessity in treatment . While developing and putting into action coping skills that are essential to your recovery. Through the use of Gestalt, Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), Solution Focused Therapy(SFBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), Reality/Choice Therapy, and Meditation Stress Reduction Techniques (MBSR) I will challenge you to become accountable in your restoration. So grab your recovery tool box, better yet let's build a tool shed.
