Starting Addiction counseling

What is Addiction counseling?

Addiction counseling therapists at Thriveworks in Orlando, FL 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 Orlando, FL 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?

Addiction is all-consuming. It pulls people away from their loved ones, their job, their most beloved hobbies. It becomes all that the individual can think about. They risk everything to obtain the substance or engage in the activity—even when they know that their wellbeing or their life is in jeopardy.

What Is Addiction?

When someone mentions the term “addiction” what are your first thoughts? The majority of people will automatically think about dependencies on alcohol, heroin, or other hard drugs. Whilst these are some common and particularly dangerous addictions, they are by no means the only forms of the condition. Addictions can stem from an array of substances and behaviors, ranging from the aforementioned drugs to cigarettes to work and sexual intercourse. This surprising diversity, combined with the complex treatment process, means that professional addiction therapy is almost always recommended for addicts who are looking to quit.

There are two commonly known forms of addiction: psychological and physical. Physical addictions occur when a physiological dependency on a particular substance develops, in which case one’s body becomes so used to the drug or other product that when it is removed serious withdrawal symptoms may occur. A psychological addiction, on the other hand, is primarily defined by an incessant drive to pursue an addictive behavior, irrespective of whether a physical dependency exists or not. Whilst these two aspects may develop hand in hand, psychological addictions frequently develop to substances or activities that do not cause physical dependencies.

Regardless of the specific subtype, addictions are characterized by a person’s incapability to control the usage, taking or doing of a particular drug/product or behavior.

Treatment for Addiction: How Can Addiction Therapy Help?

Treatment of addiction can be a long and hard road. Once an addict has overcome a physical dependency, he or she will have to go through a process of mental rehabilitation to prevent relapsing back into the old habits. During this process it is almost always recommended that the addict undertakes some form of addiction counseling.

The aim of addiction counseling is to provide addicts with support throughout this process and teach them the mental tools and mechanisms that may allow them to recognize and avoid the environmental factors that could trigger their addictions.

Yeah, therapy is subjective so it's hard to rate a company based on one therapist encounter but I do have to include the company overall because it's essential to my comprehensive review. My therapist tried, was friendly and accommodating but just didn't work for me. The company overall is disjointed and maybe a little too big for proper management. You call a central number to get set up but when it comes to quitting the therapist it is up to you as the patient to do it all. Any attempt to log into the site gets redirected to an email link. The latest CSR I had unfortunately had a thick accent and was not really listening to me and my responses.

Hi I was a prior supervisor for Margaret in California where she did her post degree internship. She was a very skilled clinician who had many kids that were high-risk and lived in low-income families. Her relationship and interactive approach was very successful with these children and families. I was impressed with her skill and abilities. I would highly recommend her. Vicci
