Addiction Counseling in Roseville, CA
Addiction is an unhealthy attachment to a mood altering substance (alcohol, meth, opiates, etc.) or experience (sex, love, gambling, etc.). There are many self-help groups available that can assist you in your growth and recovery, however, many clients still benefit from therapy by addressing underlying issues.
If you feel like therapy could help you in your recovery, I would be honored to support you. Counseling can also be a great way to help you apply the principles of recovery in your relationships. Whether you are new to recovery, or you've been in recovery for years, counseling can help you address emotional traumas and difficult experiences in a safe and compassionate environment.
I have worked with hundreds of people suffering from addiction and alcoholism over the years, and feel privileged to have shared the challenging but rewarding journey toward healing and wholeness. Rehab can be a great way to get some momentum in your recovery, but typically, short term residential treatment is not enough for lasting recovery.
For those who have worked the steps with their sponsor, and have been painstaking about the development of their recovery, it's not uncommon to still have traumas and wounds lurking in the shadows. Counseling can help unpack those experiences in a compassionate and non-judgmental setting.
It can also help to have support with building trust in a relationship with your significant other or family members who may not understand addiction and alcoholism.
Whatever form of self-help recovery you connect with, support from a fellowship that understands you and can provide acceptance, strength, and hope is essential. There are various self-help groups that can be supportive on your journey home toward wholeness.
Some of those groups include 12 step groups, faith based step programs like Celebrate Recovery, Refuge Recovery, Life Ring, SMART Recovery, and Rational Recovery, which are just some of the main self-help support options available in the community.
The important thing to know is that YOU ARE NOT ALONE. As you connect with others in recovery and find a new strength, you'll know a new freedom and a new happiness. No matter how far down the scales you've gone, you will know peace (paraphrased from Alcoholics Anonymous p. 83-84).
Finding meaning and purpose through the suffering of addiction is possible. And if you'd like some professional support on your journey, call today.
"And acceptance is the answer to all my problems today. When I am disturbed, it is because I find some person, place, thing, or situation-some fact of my life-unacceptable to me, and can find no serenity until I accept that person, place, thing or situation as being exactly the way it is supposed to be at this moment.”
