Need more help deciding?

You never thought that your drinking habits were problematic, but the current state of your life says otherwise: You’ve called out of work a couple times each week due to your drinking habits and you’re on thin ice with your boss; your significant other grew sick of your drunk arguments and called it quits; and even your closest friends and family have distances themselves from you. You realize that you might have an addiction or substance abuse problem.

Do I Have an Addiction or Substance Abuse Problem? What Are the Signs and Symptoms?

It can be hard to admit that you have a problem with your alcohol consumption or drug use. In fact, sometimes this is the most difficult part of the addiction recovery process. To best understand whether your consumption or use is something to worry about, consult the following common behavioral signs of addiction:

  • You neglect important areas of life like work or relationships with loved ones
  • You lie or downplay your alcohol consumption or drug use to friends and family
  • You drink alcohol or use the desired drug in secret
  • You’ve attempted to stop using or to cut back but have not been successful
  • Your friends and family are worried about you but you shrug them off

The above signs signify a problem that needs to be addressed. The good news is there is help readily available at Thriveworks. We’re dedicated to helping the people of New Haven take back control from their addiction or substance abuse problem. We want you to know that there are better days ahead and we can help you find them. Just call us to book your first addiction therapy appointment.

Schedule New Haven Therapy for Addiction at Thriveworks Counseling in Milford, CT

Addiction is a complicated disease. It starts out innocent enough: You drink one beer at a party or have a few glasses of wine with your friends. But somewhere along the way, your drinking gets out of control and you don’t know how to function without it. In fact, you don’t function without it. You drink every single day and you allow your job or your relationships to suffer because of it—because drinking is more important.

This is how addiction and substance abuse works. It gets to a point where you don’t know how to live without the substance. And it starts to take priority over important areas of your life. Don’t worry, though, you can get help and recover from your addiction. If you are in the New Haven area, consider working with an addiction therapist or substance abuse counselor at our office.

Gina is an incredibly skilled and talented clinician. She has the unique gift of making clients immediately feel safe and understood even upon first meeting. Her passion for the work is palpable. Her knowledge is vast and her approach is sensitive, gentle, supportive and compassionate, yet direct. Gina helped me navigate a tremendously challenging time in my life and afforded me the confidence to pursue personal goals that had initially felt unattainable. She taught me tangible skills to navigate anxiety and feelings of overwhelm during our work together and our sessions were always insightful and productive. Gina will lead you on a path to self discovery without all of the therapy lingo and jargon and will always help you to feel as though you’re the expert on your own life- because you are. I couldn’t recommend Gina more. A true diamond in the rough!
