Addiction and Recovery
We believe seeing the whole picture leads to the best outcomes.
Our practice focuses on dual-diagnosis because we so often see depression, anxiety, trauma and other life challenges co-occurring with and even driving addiction. If we take a bold approach, we believe we can tackle the root of addiction and help our clients live a full, substance-free life they have always deserved. Learning to navigate the many challenges of substance abuse is the key to flourishing in recovery.

Relapse is a part of recovery
Addiction, especially when it co-presents with anxiety, depression, trauma, or other life challenges, is often hard-wired into the brain of an individual grappling with substance abuse. Though it’s natural for a massive wave of relief to come over friends and family once a loved one has decided to go to treatment, it’s important to understand that recovery is a process, wrought with its own triumphs and challenges. It is important to approach a relapse with the understanding that relapse does not mean a return to chronic use. Most likely there will be a few “slips” along the way. This statement is likely to bring on feelings of frustration and maybe even anger or disappointment. That is why it is so imperative for family and friends to seek their own support while their loved one pursues his or her process.
