Addiction begins before you understand what's happening to you. Suddenly you can escape sad, anxious, and frightened feelings. Time passes and the coping skills you needed to grow into a responsible adult aren't there. For example, you can be successful at work, but unsuccessful in relationships. You can find yourself unreasonably angry and not know why. You can find yourself isolating from loved ones, or even yourself.
Our work together will be to explore what was occurring in your life BEFORE the addiction. What was happening at home, at school. Who was nurturing you, protecting you? Was there a resource for wisdom in your childhood?
Common addictions include but are not limited to:
- Drug or alcohol abuse
