Addiction is a complex disease. When a loved one is suffering from addiction, they are unable to stop using a chemical substance or engage in a behavior even if they want or need to. People with addiction can’t control the compulsion to drink, use drugs, eat, gamble or be consumed by any number of other potentially self-defeating actions. Even shopping and playing video games can be addictive. Addiction can wreck relationships, families and communities.
For those who suffer with an addiction, therapy can help. A specially trained counselor can help an addicted person manage their symptoms and succeed in the fight against addiction. In short, a professional therapist can help an addicted person get well. At Thriveworks in Mt. Pleasant, we help people suffering with addiction overcome the disease and live happier, healthier lives. If you’re ready to schedule a session, please call us at 843-606-6223.

How Does Addiction Counseling Work?
The first step in getting help is admitting that you want or maybe need help. Therapy begins with exploring and talking about your particular addiction, including the needs you feel you have and the effects that you are experiencing. We help you understand the nature of your addiction and then develop a plan with you to make changes for the better. Overcoming addiction is a journey, and we are here to help guide you. Counseling can also help to prevent a relapse. Stress, peer pressure and social situations can all trigger a possible relapse. The therapists at Thriveworks in Mt. Pleasant are equipped to assist you in managing these pressures. We customize a treatment plan that will most effectively help you.
