Addiction isn’t just something you can “kick” using willpower. It’s a complex disorder that affects your psyche and body. Addiction may involve drugs, like opioids or alcohol, but it can also refer to behaviors like compulsive gambling.
Addiction means that the substance or behavior to which you're addicted is about the only thing that matters. Addiction can lead to job and home loss, destroyed relationships, and poor health. Still, addicts find it impossible to quit their obsessions.
Trying to stop an addiction cold turkey can lead to serious physical and mental side effects. Addiction is a disease that impacts the functioning of your brain.
The specialists at Fully Integrated Psychotherapy & Consultation individualize your care to help you manage the withdrawal process and employ tools to help you overcome your addiction.
To overcome addiction, you must commit to treatment. At your initial telehealth meeting with a therapist at Fully Integrated Psychotherapy & Consultation, you discuss your problem and your treatment goals.
The more you discuss your addiction and the factors that trigger it, the better your therapist can help you.
Ultimately, the details of your treatment plan depend on the abused substance or behavior, your current health, and the underlying reasons for your addiction.
The providers at Fully Integrated Psychotherapy & Consultation use several techniques to help you overcome addiction:
CBT helps you identify unhelpful thinking patterns that may drive you toward your addiction. Through strategies like journaling, behavior activation, and activity scheduling, your therapist helps you see the connection between your thoughts and your addiction.
They also offer tools that help you reframe your thoughts, so you don’t immediately turn to an addictive substance or behavior.
DBT helps people who have trouble managing their emotions in healthy ways and end up engaging in destructive behaviors. You learn skills such as mindfulness, tolerance for the unpleasant, and interpersonal skills to help you address your addiction.
