What makes addiction counseling work?
Many of us who use substances or obsessive behavior are not comfortable with our own emotions and our thoughts can get distorted. We haven’t learned to cope in any other way and once a substance has become our go to, our brains can get habituated into using. Through therapy, you can learn to manage your emotions, observe and change destructive though patterns, learn mindfulness and ways to calm anxiety, increase relaxation, and other ways to self soothe.
