It’s hard to get sober, and staying clean and sober tends to bring out issues that can be quite difficult. We provide private, confidential ADDICTION COUNSELLING in Edmonton . At Edmonton Counselling Services, I help men and women to address their alcoholism, drug addiction related issues. In addition, I provide Addiction Awareness Education for job-related , DUI, or other substance abuse problems.
As a specialize in ADDICTION COUNSELLING, I am empowering individuals to resolve addictive behaviors via support and counseling. I have extensive working knowledge of diverse recovery approaches, including family recover. IT feels privileged to help individuals with substance use disorders. We support their families to create change and enjoy productive, meaningful lives. As research shows, addicted individuals often struggle with additional challenges, such as trauma, grief, and mental health disorders. I recognize that quality ADDICTION COUNSELLING treatment must be comprehensive to including these issues and the addictive behaviors. It is achieved by counseling clients in the individual, group, and family settings.
The hardest part about ADDICTION COUNSELLING is getting the individual to show up for counselling. For that reason, it will help if family or partner to come to the ADDICTION COUNSELLING session initially to support your loved one. After all, its hard for addicted person to overcome the addiction if the family or partners are not willing to put forth the effort. If you suggest ADDICTION COUNSELLING to your partner, they may become defensive. The partner may say something like “there is nothing wrong with me. I don’t have the problem.” But if they truly care about saving the relationship, they will put aside their pride. You can support them and come to the ADDICTION COUNSELLING session out of their love and respect for them.
All sessions are conducted in a quiet environment where person affected with addiction is free to express his /her feelings. I will be there to counsel you throughout the entire session. I’ll also answer any questions you may have about what to do next in the relationship.
In ADDICTION COUNSELLING sessions, addition to treating substance use disorders, I treat co-occurring disorders, co-dependency, as well as stressful life transitions. I use cognitive behavioral therapy techniques, motivational interviewing, as well as principles of solution-focused therapy. I provide comprehensive client assessments as well as clinical supervision to other professionals in the therapy field.
