Addictions Counseling

For those Battling Addiction:

We understand the complexities of addiction and its impact on all aspects of life. Our addiction counselors understand the challenges and emotions associated with addiction and provide support and guidance without judgment. We believe in your inherent worth and potential for recovery.  So, we work closely with you to develop a personalized treatment plan, tailored to your specific needs, goals, and circumstances. We take into account the many factors such as the nature and severity of your addiction, co-occurring mental health issues, and any underlying trauma or stressors that may contribute to your addiction.

Many individuals struggling with addiction also experience co-occurring mental health disorders. Therefore, our addiction counseling services address these dual diagnoses, providing integrated treatment for addiction and mental health issues. We work collaboratively with you to identify and address underlying mental health challenges, helping you achieve holistic recovery and emotional well-being.

Overcoming addiction is a journey that requires ongoing support and relapse prevention strategies. Accordingly, our addiction counseling services focus on initial recovery and equipping you with the tools and skills necessary to maintain long-term sobriety. We provide education on triggers, cravings, and high-risk situations, as well as strategies to cope with stress, develop healthy coping mechanisms, and build a strong support system.

For families and friends:

We understand the profound pain, confusion, and disruption that addiction can have on relationships. Our counselors are here to offer guidance, healing, and support throughout the recovery process. There is no better time to express your feelings, address conflicts, and learn effective communication and boundary-setting skills.

Counseling for those impacted by a friend or family member’s addiction includes information about the nature of addiction, its effects on individuals and families, and the dynamics that contribute to enabling behaviors or codependency. By gaining a deeper understanding of addiction, you can develop healthier coping mechanisms and make informed decisions that support your loved one’s recovery.

How do we work with those affected by addiction?

Lighthouse provides a safe and empathetic environment to address the complex nature of addiction. Our counselors utilize a combination of multiple therapeutic approaches, tailored to your past wounds, current circumstances, and future goals. Some of these techniques include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Person-Centered Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Family-Oriented Therapy, and Mindfulness-Based Therapy. Taking the first step towards addiction recovery is courageous and transformative. We are here to provide the guidance, accountability, and support needed to break free from the cycle of addiction. It is possible to build a healthier, purpose-filled life.
