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.

Thankful for Emily Gilliam!

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.

my life where in my mind, I had nowhere to turn. I reached out and I had never done this before. It was extremely difficult to say to myself, “I need someone to talk to.” Not knowing who or where that someone would be. And so, I was introduced to Emily Gilliam. A stranger, a therapist, a counselor. I don’t talk as it is, but Emily made it easy as I spilled my circumstances, actions, thoughts, and beliefs to Emily in a comfortable and secure setting. And for over a year, Emily and I were able to get through my darkness, my tough time, my thoughts, my situation. I would not be in my better place right now if it were not for Emily or people like Emily that are in her profession. Emily and people like her are needed and I’m am very happy that our paths crossed. And if you find yourself in a dark spot, a dark place in life, and you have the opportunity for your path to cross into Emily’s, you would be in a safe, secure, professional, space. I do thank her every day, even though she may not know it, or may not know how important she is and was to me and how her help, advice, thoughts, options, and opinions that she gave me got me through my darkness. So, if this review reaches one person and that one person has the opportunity and good fortune to meet and talk to Emily, I would be happy for that one person, as that person would meet an excellent stranger, therapist, counselor, and maybe a friend. Thanks again Emily, I wish nothing but the best, CB.

is exceptionally skilled at what she does, yet makes each session feel effortless. I could feel she truly cared for me. She taught me practical coping mechanisms while also helping me discover who I was and why I should love every part of myself. I highly recommend Emily Gilliam.
