Long Island Addictions Therapy | Addiction Treatment in Garden City, Lawrence and More

Addictions are often hard to understand, and even harder to control. Addictions can affect you on a chemical level, and in many cases they can create a psychological dependence as well that makes them self-sustaining. The longer you struggle with an addiction, the more your mind and body become used to the thought processes, lifestyle, and chemicals involved, and the more your own natural habits (like stress coping) break down without the addictive substance.

It’s because of the struggles of addiction that I offer safe, effective treatment for addictions. As a Long Island addictions psychologist, I have worked with many individuals struggling with abuse and dependence, and I want to help you stay free of addiction once and for all.

 

Why Addiction Counseling?

Addiction can be a powerful experience, and one that can bring many negative consequences to a person’s life:

  • Are your addictions affecting your finances, relationships, or family?
  • Are your addictions affecting your happiness or your health?
  • Are you addictions leading to feelings of shame, guilt and a chronic sense of unworthiness?
  • Are your addictions spiraling out of control?

 

Sometimes it’s hard to tell you have an addiction until it has already progressed, because you may “feel” like you can stop at any time. Yet that self-control often doesn’t last long, or stress and situations cause you to feel like you need it “just one more time” and you hop right back into your addiction.

That’s why it’s important to see an addictions therapist. With my addictions counseling service, we will:

  • Work on controlling the addiction
  • Tackle the issues that have led to your addiction
  • Provide you with tools to help prevent yourself from falling victim to the addiction again

 

Not only has therapy for addictions proven itself to be an effective way to control addictions – it’s also a great way to keep yourself accountable, and to start making the positive changes that will have you enjoying your life more, preventing the repercussions caused by the addiction, improve your self esteem, rebuild your relationships, and give you the strategies that you need to handle future stress without any type of substance or behavior.

I work with all types of addictions, including:

  • Illicit and Prescription Drug Addiction
  • Alcohol Addiction
  • Gambling Addiction
  • Food Addiction
  • Work Addiction
  • Sex and Pornography Addiction, and More

 

With offices in Garden City and Lawrence, and serving all of the Greater Long Island Area, I’m confident that my therapy practices will help you start making significant changes to the way that addictions control your life. All you need is to take the first step and start seeking out the help that you need.
