Starting Addiction counseling

What is Addiction counseling?

Addiction counseling therapists at Thriveworks in Johnson City, TN can help people manage their urges to use the substance or engage in the activity they're addicted to. In addition, it can help people manage the challenges that stem from their addiction from relationship issues to problems at work as well as those that their addiction may stem from like trauma.

How does Addiction counseling work?

Addiction counseling at Thriveworks in Johnson City, TN works by helping one understand the underlying causes of their addiction, teaching them coping strategies, and recognizing their specific triggers. Long-term or ongoing addiction counseling can also help to prevent relapse.

Is Addiction counseling conducted in person or online?

Addiction counseling at Thriveworks is conducted both in person and online by video. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does Addiction counseling last?

The length of addiction counseling depends on the individual's needs as well as the extent and severity of their addiction as well as the problems that might stem from it. That said, people can make meaningful progress in addiction counseling in the first weeks to months.

Need more help deciding?

Our Johnson City addiction counselors have seen all kinds of addiction, from drug addicts to those struggling with alcoholism. They have seen people addicted to sex, gambling and pornography, and have also helped those addicted to their work, to exercise and to food. Whatever one is addicted to, there are certain common factors involved concerning behavior. Although the range of different addictions is vast, a sign of being addicted can be one of the following:

  • Lying and cheating. An addict is often in denial and will lie to themselves and others about the depth of their addiction
  • Consuming more and more. An addict will use more as his or her tolerance level rises. No matter what the addiction is, if a person keeps needing more and more of it, at the expense of everything else in their life, there’s a chance that they are addicted to it
  • Desperate need. When an addict is not using, he or she is thinking about using or about the next time that he/she will use. He/she is planning their life and their schedule around the substance or the activity, not the other way around.

Results of Addiction

Addiction costs lives. Drug addicts can overdose and alcoholics can drink themselves to death if left unchecked. Outside of the health issues, a life of lying, cheating and self-hatred can break up families, ruin friendships and destroy relationships. And then there’s the money. Addiction can cost everything as people lose their jobs, homes and savings because of their disease.

I have met with MJ ( Marissa) Jordan at the Johnson City,TN location for 5-6 sessions. My main issue is gaining understanding and knowledge of how and why I act the way I do, and what changes I need to make. Her ability to help me understand and change without feeling bad about myself is amazing! She uses enlightening personal examples that make it easy for me to comprehend. I am learning so much about how making a few positive changes will allow me to become a better person. I highly suggest MJ if you're looking for help with personal issues!
