Help With Substance Use Disorders

TherapyNow Counsellors provide an online support system for people struggling with substances. Substance misuse can include anything from prescription or over the counter medication and alcohol to drugs and alcohol.

Unfortunately, substance misuse also comes with many issues that vilify and segregate people and families, rather than actually providing the care and support that is required.

Substance misuse issues are not driven by the substance itself but are rooted in more complex coping behaviour patterns. When aย  substance is introduced to help manage deeper emotional turmoils, addiction becomes a far more distinct probability. Counselling helps you recognise patterns in your behaviour and learn to cope with your emotional needs in a constructive way.

Substance misuse should be seen as a symptom of unresolved issues or “post-traumatic trauma (PTSD)”. Once an effective way to deal with the issues is found, the need for the substance as a coping mechanism becomes manageable.

It requires careful guidance and support to re-guide self-esteem, self-worth, self-validation, self-confidence, acceptance, grace, gratitude, peace, inner peace and love to unlock your unlimited potential.

Healing relationships is also integral to the process. Family work or couples counselling is necessary for most situations.

The Components of Substance Addiction/Misuse

Substance addictions are often “self-medications” in an attempt for you to regulate your nervous system.

They also have a direct impact on how you respond in many life circumstances and often make your situation worse.

Let’s help you figure out what’s driving your behaviour instead of treating the symptoms.

Substance Addictions and Relationships

Substance use creates mistrust in relationships and beliefs such as: “you donโ€™t deserve” or “are not worthy of”. Most addiction disorders come with an underlying feeling of “unease” or “dissatisfaction” with life experiences. This feeling of something “missing” can be linked to deeper emotions of low self-esteem, self-acceptance, self-worth, or self-validation.

An online talk counsellor can help you re-align these internal dialogues in absolute confidentiality.
