Addiction Counseling in South Charlotte—Arboretum, Ballantyne Area Mental Health Therapists

Addiction Counseling in South Charlotte—Arboretum, Ballantyne Area Therapists

Do you believe you might need help with an addiction? Thriveworks clinicians can help without shaming or blaming. Our professionals are trained and have experience with alcohol use disorders and substance use disorders.

Not sure you have an addiction? Ask yourself the following:

  • Are you having difficulty with the overuse of substances?
  • Is your behavior causing substantial harm? Is it affecting your health, your safety, your profession, and/or your family life?
  • Do you continue to engage in these activities repeatedly when you know they are causing substantial harm?
  • Is this continuing to occur because it was, or continues to be pleasurable and valuable?

Our clinicians work with clients to tailor a treatment plan specifically towards their needs. Strategies used to treat addiction are:

  • Acceptance and Commitment
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
  • Mindfulness
  • Identifying coping skills and triggers
  • 12-step recovery methods
