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.

The only reason why my Family stopped going to see Ms. Dowdell is because I had to change jobs and at the time...Read more

my schedule would not allow us to continue services. She made sure my Family had a great transition to another Provider and that we had continuity of care. Now that my schedule has a little more flexibility, I am very thankful to be able to continue services with Ms. Dowdell who still remembers my Family’s history like we were just in her office yesterday (over 1 year ago)! She listens intently and never puts you down, and helps you understand your emotions and what issues and problems you may be going through in a way that you can understand but clearly. Personally, I deal with a lot of stress and being pulled in a lot of directions, and would when I felt as though my words did not make sense coming out of my mouth, she would know how to piece together what I was saying and not make me feel bad for being too vulnerable and made my therapy sessions a safe space to learn and grow from them. I am forever grateful for how she is helping my Family accept what we need to accept, change what we need to change, and heal from the root of our wounds; wounds I did not know were there. I highly recommend her.

Emily Gilliam

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.
