If you’re addicted to drugs or alcohol, it is because you are self-medicating underlying problems that currently exist in your life. Addiction is merely a symptom of these underlying problems, and once you heal the underlying issues that are causing you to use, your addictive behaviors will cease as a result. There are many underlying problems that can cause you to use drugs and alcohol, some of the most common being depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, childhood trauma, or post-traumatic stress disorder.
At Passages, you will work with a skilled team of therapists who will help you to unmask and heal your underlying problems in a one-on-one, completely customized setting. One of therapists that will help you do this is a Chemical Dependency Counselor, who serves as a crucial component of our holistic addiction treatment program.
Your Chemical Dependency Counselor will work with you to treat your dependency issues and also to find out why they exist in the first place. Our counselors are experts at helping rebuild hobbies and finding new ways of dealing with difficulties without relying on alcohol or drugs. Later in your stay, your Chemical Dependency Counselor can work with your family members to help them understand how they can assist in the healing process. They will also meet with your entire treatment team every week to coordinate efforts, ensuring that you receive the best and most personalized treatment possible.
