Every healing journey starts with a single step. Drug and Alcohol Counselling
The Passionate Life Program (to improve thought pattern management, subconscious pattern overview/change, self-esteem work, emotional management tools, grief/trauma work, education on brain chemistry, relationship therapy and general lifestyle coping skills).
In addition to this, our counsellors can assist you to heal past traumas (using Somatic Therapies) to ensure you are grounded enough to continue through to full recovery.
This work is complex, involves homework, and has been shown to be highly effective in assisting clients to recovery from sex addiction, as well as drug and alcohol addiction.
Our Drug and Alcohol program includes education on the brain (chemistry and structure), addiction, depression and anxiety, and outlines how to improve these areas.
Change your neural pathways; change the result!
Drug and Alcohol Counselling also includes Brainspotting for addiction (Roby Abeles Crocodile Set Up) which is believed to create a neural pathway from the limbic system to the prefrontal cortex – which in short, means that an addict can see the consequences while in a craving! This is such a great change, as often clients with addiction cannot see the consequences of ‘using again’ while they are in a craving…as once in a craving they are ‘in the animal instinct brain’ and they begin to feel powerless. However, this brainspotting for addiction is so powerful… and it only takes less than an hour! Some of our counsellors are trained in brainspotting. We believe it is nothing short of a miracle – We see clients going into recovery, and staying there, the process is fast!
This Passionate Life Program has been proven to make this path easier. All we ask is that your do your homework, to ensure the behavioral, thought, subconscious, neural pathway and brain chemistry changes can occur 🙂
