Addiction Counselling can help with Alchohol or Drug Addiction. Whether you are a family member or have developed a dependency to a substance, it takes courage to face addiction, even more so to learn new ways of being you, to forgive yourself and others and to build a life worth living.
Addiction Recovery is possible.
It is important to find a safe and professional place for you to begin to understand addiction and how it has impacted you and navigate your recovery. It is important to find an approach that is centred on your wellbeing, learning new behaviours and thought patterns, increasing self-efficacy and mastery in your life – consequently finding life without the prison of addiction.
Addiction is a recoverable disease, it is not a moral failing or due to a lack of willpower.
For Family Members of someone with a dependency
- Parents who want to support children with dependency
- Partners and adult children looking for ways to help each other and a loved one toward recovery
If you are in a relationship with someone with substance abuse, you will be impacted by the addiction. You might want to ‘fix’ the dependent person in your life, you may be angry, or think they would stop if they loved you more. You may have been trying to manage this disease on your own holding secrets out of shame and fear.
The truth is, addiction is a disease which is recoverable from but one that you do not have power over. What you are not powerless over however is you! I can help you with how you can continue your relationship with your loved one. I can assist you to focus on your own wellness.
To provide any kind of support to your loved one, you need to be well yourself.
