What is addiction counseling?

Addiction Counseling at Northwest Winds Recovery uses various talk-therapy strategies to help you adopt thought and behavior patterns that help break addictions to certain drugs, alcohol, or other highly addictive substances.

At Northwest Winds Recovery, substance use counselor Joyce Warren, LADC, CCS, focuses on the far-reaching effects of addiction to assist patients in finding the right path to recovery. She works closely with you to develop an effective treatment plan specific to the goals you want to focus on and the steps you can take to achieve them.

Northwest Winds Recovery offers cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing, and other highly effective forms of addiction counseling to increase your chance of long-term success.

Why might I need addiction counseling?

Addiction Counseling can help address the all-reaching effects of substance use disorder, and is helpful in improving quality of life. Hallmark signs of substance use disorder include:

  • Feeling high
  • Withdrawal symptoms upon quitting
  • Poor job or work performance
  • Poor decision-making
  • Strong urges to take addictive substances
  • Not being able to stop using substances
  • Relationship challenges
  • Needing to use more of a substance to achieve the same effects

If you have difficulty avoiding alcohol, opioids, or other drugs, addiction counseling at Northwest Winds Recovery is for you.

Before tailoring your treatment plan, skilled counselors dig into the root cause of your issues to develop a deeper understanding of who you are as an individual and who you wish to become during your journey to recovery.
