Nobody decides to become addicted: it begins unknowingly, often as an attempt to relieve stress, escape from physical or mental pain, or try something new. Addictions are not easy to overcome without help, and there is no one right way to treat addiction. Treatment often involves a combination of support programs, detox programs, psychotherapy and counseling.
HHC psychotherapists view addiction as a maladaptive tool of coping with underlying issues like shame and guilt, feelings of disconnectedness, PTSD, anxiety disorders, depression, unresolved grief and other psychological conditions. Through a combination of cognitive behavior therapy, coherence therapy, mindfulness training, spiritual counseling and other forms of psychotherapy, we can create customized individual treatment plans aimed at addressing the underlying issues and learning healthy coping skills. We also work with clients who are undergoing rehab programs and twelve-step programs such as Alcoholics Anonymous.
