Help With Substance Use Disorders
TherapyNow Therapists provide a support system for people struggling with substances. This can include anything from prescription or over the counter medication and alcohol to drugs and alcohol.
Unfortunately, substance use disorders also come with many issues that vilify and segregate people and families, rather than actually providing the care and support that is required.
Substance use disorders are not driven by the substance itself but are rooted in more complex coping behaviour patterns. When a substance is introduced to help manage deeper emotional turmoils, the consequence of 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 use disorders should be seen as a symptom to 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.
Starting the conversation is the first and most difficult step. Be brave. We are here to walk the journey with you.
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 don’t deserve” or “are not worthy of”. Most addiction disorders come with an underlying feeling of “unease” or “dissatisfaction” of life experiences. This feeling of something “missing” can be linked to deeper emotions of low self-esteem, self-acceptance, self-worth or self-validation.
