Drug addiction is a growing problem here on the East Coast. Many highly addictive drugs are being bought and sold with greater frequency, and the result is a population that has become increasing dependent on many different types of drugs that each have different health and financial consequences.
If you struggle with drug addiction, the sooner you get help the better. As a drug addiction therapist and counselor in Long Island, it is my job to help you overcome any drug addiction you may struggle with, and help you rebuild any part of your life that has been affected by it.
Long Island Drug Addiction Therapy
Drug abuse often requires a more complicated treatment. Drugs themselves cause physical dependency that differs depending on the type of drug. But it also can lead to an emotional and mental dependency that requires its own specific treatment. In addition, some treatments may need to address where the drugs are found:
Prescription Drug Addiction – Prescription drug use has grown exponentially, as more and more individuals are becoming addicted to pain killers and other drugs that provide similar highs to illicit drugs. Not everyone that has a prescription drug addiction did so on purpose, either, as some may have occurred during an injury recovery.
Illicit Drug Addiction – Illicit drugs, such as cocaine, heroin, and many others, also represent their own challenges. The reasons that some people seek these drugs, as well as the effects they have on a person’s life may need a specific treatment style.
Within therapy, we’ll look at all of the issues that need to be addressed in order to successfully eliminate drug dependency. Not only will we look for replacement behaviors for the addiction itself, but we’ll also look at stress coping strategies, the relationships you have around you, what drove you to consider and ultimately abuse drugs, and much more.
