Starting Addiction counseling

What is addiction counseling?

Addiction counseling therapists at Thriveworks in Wyomissing, PA 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 whose addiction may stem from issues like trauma.

How does addiction counseling work?

Addiction counseling at Thriveworks in Wyomissing, PA 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?

Overcoming an Addiction – Counselors and Therapists in Reading, PA

Addictions are a real problem and it can include many things such as alcohol, drugs, medications, tobacco, caffeine, gambling, sex, food, exercise, shopping, or even the internet.

Addictions can happen to anyone—don’t hesitate to reach out to an addiction and substance abuse counselor at Thriveworks Reading.

What Is an Addiction?

Addictions produce intense activation of the reward system in your brain pathways and produces pleasure, often referred to as the “high.” Many things can become addictive, although not all addictions are considered a mental health disorder.

How Do I Know If I Have an Addiction?

You may find yourself using substances or engaging in addictive behaviors more frequently, using larger amounts, and despite wanting to quit; you find yourself unsuccessful. You may spend more time and energy in activities trying to get the substances or engaging in the behavior and then more time recovering from its effects.

You may also experience withdrawal symptoms from certain substances and find yourself using more, just to avoid them. You may start to lie to conceal your addiction from others or steal to finance your addiction.

You may also start to feel distressed, anxious, depressed, and more irritable. You may feel like you are losing control.

How Can Thriveworks-Reading/Wyomissing Help?

At Thriveworks Reading-Wyomissing, we have experienced, credentialed, and licensed counselors that can help you determine if you have an addiction and get you the help that you need.

Get back on the right track and on the road to restoration with help from the counseling professionals at Thriveworks Reading Counseling.

I am pleased to have someone I can tell how I am feeling that I would not express to family or friends. The medication helps me to get a better night sleep and helps me feel better the following days and to cope throughout the days that follow.

I'm very fortunate to have gotten such a great Therapist Lauren Lowe. She is a very good listener and helps me with my anxiety. Lauren gives me ideas how to manage the anxiety. I see her every Wednesday afternoon and go over what has happened for the week to help me cope with things I have problems with. I look forward to see her and all the help she has given me. I rate her very highly as a Therapist.

I took my preteen child there, who did not want to go at all and after 1 session my child was willing to go back, reporting the counselor was so nice! I instantly saw a change in my child, we will continue to attend throughout the summer to continue to make progress. When we arrived, I instantly felt comfortable in this calm environment. I recommend this office to anyone.
