Addiction Therapy

Are you struggling to manage addiction on your own?



Individual Therapy is an important part of Addiction treatment.

What is Addiction Therapy

This type of help focuses on changing thoughts, beliefs and behaviors around the addiction, the underlying issues behind an individual's behavior and choices he or she makes.

Overcoming addiction doesn’t just involve detoxification from the drug or alcohol. Detoxing can be the first of many steps that a person takes. However, one of the most useful steps a person can take during this time is commitment to a therapy program.

If your addiction has become your coping mechanism then it is highly likely that your brain is so used to using that it can be very difficult to stop without support.  Discovery 2.0 therapy is focused on managing and changing your emotions at the deepest level, to  change the destructive thoughts that lead to the destructive behavior of using drugs or alcohol.

 Types of individual treatment that have been proven effective for addiction include:

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)

Trauma-focused therapy

Dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT)


Motivation Enhancement

Therapy is an essential aspect of most successful addiction recovery plan. While research suggests that behavioral therapies are some of the most effective in treating alcohol and drug addictions our work together will look at a range modalities customized to your individual need.

Individual therapy can be a powerful intervention to healing and can help address underlying issues that may include:

  • Abuse (physical or mental)
  • Trauma
  • Grief
  • Loss of relationships
  • Low self worth

There can often be a lot of emotional pain to sort through once substances are no longer a part of your life. I will help you work through your actual core beliefs that have held you back, control the unmanageable emotional responses to life issues, and help you move to the next phase in your life. The “Discovery” and healing phase.

Life does not wait… Let’s get started.
