Bethlehem Addiction Counseling

Addiction Counseling in Bethlehem, PA—Counselors and Therapists at Thriveworks Lehigh Valley

People often need counseling or therapy to overcome their addiction because they can’t stop using even if or when they want to. They can’t control their urge to drink, gamble, shop, use. Because they know what it feels like when they fulfill that craving. They long for that fulfillment, as well as the comfort and satisfaction the substance or behavior brings them.

There are different types of addiction, of which we touched on above: you can become addicted to alcohol and other substances, and you can become addicted to activities like gambling, shopping, and eating. Whatever the case, it’s important you seek the help you need to control your addiction and live a healthy, successful life. That’s our mission at Thriveworks—to lead you on your mission to living better. If you need addiction counseling, reach out to Thriveworks Bethlehem, as we’re able and eager to help.

What Are Common Signs of Addiction?

There are different signs of addiction: there are physical, emotional, and behavioral changes that can signify an addiction. Let’s break those down:

  • Physical Signs: These include weight loss, hyperactivity, malnourishment, paleness, and unpleasant body odor.
  • Emotional Signs: These include irritability, denial, blame, and loss of interest in day to day activities as well as those once beloved by the individual
  • Behavioral Signs: These include isolation, lying to loved ones, financial strain, and difficulty at school or work.

If these signs sound all too familiar then you might be struggling with an addiction. And as you can see, addiction can cause some serious damage to the afflicted individual as well as his or her loved ones—which is exactly why it’s so important to seek treatment. If you’re concerned about your habits and think you might have a problem, consider working with a counselor or psychologist at Thriveworks Bethlehem.

Do I Need Addiction Counseling?

As we just discussed, the signs are there. However, it isn’t always easy for one to realize they have a problem. And if they do realize they have a problem, they might be hesitant to admit it or talk about it. In addition to the signifiers listed above, these individuals also often…

  • Plan to change their habits, but haven’t yet succeeded
  • Have failed to follow through on their responsibilities
  • Suffer significantly in their personal and/or professional lives

The good news is that a counselor can help. Counseling has proven to effectively treat addiction. And while each counseling journey is different, depending on the client and their specific circumstances, this process often involves learning how to manage their addiction in everyday life, as well as forming healthier habits that will help them sustain a happier, healthier, and more successful life.

Thriveworks Counseling Bethlehem

Unlocking my potential

★★★★★
Through my sessions with Lora I’ve been able to stop doubting myself and my capabilities. My life has changed drastically for the better through her teachings and spot-on feedback. I started seeing Lora because I was going through a tough breakup and not only were we able to acknowledge the toxicity of that relationship, we were also able to tackle my productivity issues at work and I have since completely turned my career around. I feel as though I’ve been running with a ton of weight on my shoulders and Lora was able to guide me on how to liberate myself from all of these burdens and run freely! Thank you Lora, don’t know where I’d be without ya!
