Starting Substance abuse & addiction counseling

What is Substance abuse & addiction counseling?

Long-term or ongoing substance abuse & addiction counseling can also help to prevent relapse.

That said, people can make meaningful progress in substance abuse & addiction counseling in the first weeks to months.

Need more help deciding?

We live in a society of more- more pay, more fun, more friends, more money. As a result, we are always chasing the next high. Maybe that high for you is a promotion or going out with someone new. Or maybe it is something even more destructive like using drugs and alcohol.

The addiction counselors at Thriveworks in Red Bank understand this need for more—we’re human too after all! But what if that high you’re chasing is detrimental to your life and health? What if saying yes to a drug also means saying no to mental and physical health?

You’re the only one who can take that step back and decide if your substance use has gone too far. There’s a thin line between recreational and abusive substance use- and you’re the only one who can draw it.

Regardless of your decision, Red Bank addictions therapists want to make one thing abundantly clear: your usage of drugs is never a true reflection of who you are. You are so much more than your drug use and you have so much more to offer. Let’s start finding your true potential today.

For more information or to schedule an appointment today, call Thriveworks in Red Bank, NJ at 732-606-4469.

What Are the Effects of Addiction and Substance Abuse?

The effects of addiction and substance abuse stretch far out into the future. It’s not just your current life that will be impacted by addiction- it’s your future.

Substance use is an easy escape from life in the moment. It feels good and makes all the bad disappear- who wouldn’t want that?? But when used irresponsibly, and sometimes when used at all, drug use can quickly become detrimental.

Some of the negative effects addiction and substance abuse can have include:

  • Cravings for the drug/alcohol continue throughout day
  • Unsustainable or reckless spending patterns; financial strains
  • Painful physical reactions to withdrawal (headache, anxiety, inability to sleep or oversleeping, muscle aches)
  • Changes in social patterns or groups
  • Lying or being secretive
  • Unable to feel happy or safe without a drug or alcohol high
  • Mood changes
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Physical health problems such as cancer, heart disease, or skin disease

When you’re struggling with substance abuse, your brain and body are working against you. Everything in you is screaming for one more hit, even if everything in you knows it’s a bad idea. It’s an exhausting cycle that can feel impossible to escape.

The addictions counselors in Red Bank hold to the truth that no matter what your past or current drug usage is, you are still worthy of a future that you are excited to wake up to. Drug use never makes you weak or broken. They never reflect who you are as a person. More often than not, they’re a symptom more than a cause, but more on that later.

You don’t have to go through healing alone, but you do have to be the one to take that first step. You are the only one who can start yourself down that that path towards a better future and the only one who can ensure you’ll stick to it. But don’t worry, Red Bank addiction counselors will be with you for all of it.

  • Working through any co-morbid anxiety, depression, anger, trauma, or other mental health concerns that might come with substance abuse.

Zack Diamond Drake has some of the best ears around. If there is something dragging you down or simply holding you back, this individual will not only help you work through whatever it is, but help you to think through the process yourself. This, in my opinion, is the best kind of counseling there is. I would highly recommend his services.
