Addiction Counseling – Therapists and Counselors in Greenville, SC

Who is affected by addiction?

People who are addicted to drugs often do not believe that they have a problem with substance abuse. They can’t see the problems that their drug use has caused, nor do they don’t feel like they are sick or out-of-control. As a result, they generally do not seek help for their drug addiction. Others recognize that they have a drug problem, but feel so overwhelmed by the circumstances in their lives that they cannot see a way to break free from their addiction.

Can addiction be treated?

Many people ask if drug addiction can be treated. The answer is “Yes!” Addiction can be treated. The length and style of therapy varies, but many people find that counseling for addiction helps them fight the urge to use drugs and even reclaim control of their lives. Regardless of whether you have abused substances for a short period of time or you have an extensive history battling substance abuse, therapy can help you understand addiction, recognize its effect on you and your loved ones, and develop a plan to help you get (and stay) clean. You don’t need to hit rock bottom to begin treatment for addiction. You can get help today!

How is drug addiction treated?

Drug addiction can be treated with medication, but medication alone cannot keep someone from using. It simply helps a person fight the urge to use drugs long enough for the substance to leave the body. Once addictive substances are no longer present in the body, therapy for substance abuse can be a valuable part of recovery, providing assistance with developing a new way of living, learning how to avoid situations that lead to temptation, creating a new way of thinking, and finding new ways to respond to the pressures of life.

Emily was the first therapist I had ever gone to after thinking for a long time it would be good for me. I was...Read more

stuck in a rut and repeating patterns and using coping skills that were no longer helpful to me. She helped me work through many of my personal issues, some which had been stewing since childhood. She always knew when to push and when to back off if a certain issue was too sensitive at that time. She is honest yet kind. I was sad to see her move out of Chicago but I will forever be grateful for the tools she helped me to develop for dealing with the sh**show that life can be sometimes. She helped me get back into alignment with who I really am as a person. I would highly recommend her for anyone who is struggling or even just looking for a little more balance in their lives.

dn't see it myself. She helped me with my grief after losing my father. She helped me overcome my addictions with drugs and alcohol. She taught me to be kind to myself and that everyday is not gonna be an amazing day and that's okay. She helped me accept that I don't have to know the outcomes to big life changes that it's best to go with the flow, wear life like a loose garment. Emily is such and amazing counselor and I am forever grateful for everything she helped me see. Emily cares tremendously and I know deep in my heart she is gonna continue being the sunshine in many more client lives. Emily has made a huge impact on my life and I don't think I will ever find a counselor as down to earth as she is. Chicago misses you already!!! :) :) :)

ion. I thought I was handling it well until one day had a massive panic attack. I did my research and reached out to her immediately. She met with me the next day and helped my put a plan into place for recovery. The first time I met her, I knew I could trust her and she tailored my therapy and sessions to what I needed at the time and at each stage of progress. There were times I digressed and she helped me get back on track and we celebrated my small wins and progress together. I would recommend her to any friend or family member. I know personally, taking the first step to get help is an important one. I can confidently say she was a great first step for me and I know she's fantastic at helping others too.
