Addiction Counseling in Newark, DE—Addiction Counselors and Therapists

Addiction is one of those diseases that afflicts an entire family. In other words, when an individual develops an addiction—to drinking, to smoking, to gambling, to shopping—they are affected greatly, but they aren’t the only one affected. Their loved ones are affected too, and in more ways than one. Life changes as they know it.

“One of the hardest things was learning that I was worth recovery.”–Demi Lovato

This disease is characterized by an inability to stop a behavior, whether it’s doing drugs, drinking alcohol, betting money, spending money. The addicted individual’s entire life is driven by their desire to engage in the behavior. They spend each day searching for the fulfillment, the satisfaction they receive from it. And rarely do they realize or acknowledge they have a problem.

Fortunately, there are professionals dedicated to helping these individuals understand, manage, and recover from addiction. If you have a problem with addiction, consider working with an addiction counselor at Thriveworks Newark. You can trust that you’ll be working with a skilled, experienced provider, as we only partner with leading professionals in the mental health field. To schedule an appointment, call Thriveworks Newark today at (302) 724-6662.

Physical, Emotional, and Behavioral Effects of Addiction

As we touched on above, addiction can have harrowing effects on the affected individual (as well as their loved ones). There are physical, emotional, and behavioral effects, which can also serve as red flags. They include:

  • Weight loss
  • Irritability
  • Hyperactivity
  • Blame or denial
  • Loss of interest
  • Pale skin
  • Isolation
  • Lying to loved ones
  • Bad body odor
  • Overspending
  • Neglecting responsibilities

Do you observe any of these red flags in your life or in a loved one’s life? If so, it’s important you get the help you need now to recover. An addiction counselor at Thriveworks Newark can provide you with that help and support necessary to manage and recover from your addiction.

How Does Counseling Help People with Addiction?

Addiction counselors help their clients to identify signs of addiction as well as the symptoms they are experiencing. They can then help their clients to manage these symptoms and understand a potential cause of their addiction. Often, addiction stems from an underlying issue like another current challenge in one’s life or a past trauma. The very first step, though, is acknowledging there might be a problem. In addition to the effects listed above, an individual with an addiction often…

  • Plans to make a meaningful change, but fails to shake the problematic behavior
  • Struggles to give their relationships the time, love, and attention they deserve
  • Isn’t able to uphold responsibilities at work, at school, or in other important areas of life.

Remember: you must first acknowledge that there is (or might be) a problem so that you can get the help you need. Reach out to an addiction counselor at Thriveworks Newark to schedule an appointment as soon as today! We want to help you recover, heal, and live a better life.

Great scheduling team!

★★★★★
I called to make an appointment for my daughter and Kenyata was SO friendly and helpful. She answered all of my questions and was so easy to talk to. Scheduling as a first-time patient is always so difficult, but this was so easy and accomodating. If the scale is 1-5, 5 being the best, I'd give my experience a 10!

The right kind of help when I needed it

★★★★★
Dr Thompson provides great support and advice. She helped me through a rough time in my life and gave me the right kind of help when I needed it. I learned a ton about myself, cleaned up some past baggage that was weighing me down, and got my life back on track. I still use the skills she taught me in my relationships, at work, with my kids and I feel in control of my life. I’m not happy go lucky 100% of the time, but I’m much more relaxed and open and confident that I can handle whatever comes up. Big thanks to Dr Thompson!

Caring, competent therapists,

★★★★★
When Dr Thompson announced she was opening a Thriveworks office in Newark, I was thrilled. Over the past 20 years, I have referred many clients to Dr Thompson and found her to be sensitive, caring, ethical, and highly skilled with a wide range of clients. She was able to connect with folks who’ve had difficulty finding a good fit with other clinicians, and she seemed to know just the right approach with some of my clients who’d tried therapy in the past, but didn’t really feel at ease. Her compassion, experience, and excellent clinical skills make her my first choice when referring out; I would send my own family members to Dr Thompson.
