Addiction Therapy

Susan believes that an addiction (substance abuse) is a complex, multi-layered dynamic that results in maladaptive coping strategies used by individuals seeking to control or regulate their internal emotional states.

Who it’s for:

Addiction therapy can apply to:

  • Individuals dealing with a substance-use/abuse issue
    • unaware that the substance is negatively affecting their life
    • needing assistance in entering a treatment program
    • on completion of treatment (to examine underlying issues).

How Susan can help:

Susan’s top priority in every situation is ensuring the safety and well-being of the client. She approaches addiction therapy from a perspective of reducing the harm the individual is causing to themselves and others, and seeks to foster a greater degree of self-care. As needed, Susan can refer clients to suitable organizations and treatment centres.

Desired outcome:

The aim is to help the user understand and successfully deal with the underlying issues such that the addictive behaviour is no longer required as a coping mechanism.
