Addiction

Addiction is such a devastating disease. This is so poignantly illustrated by the recent death of Philip Seymour-Hoffman. After 23 years in recovery this talented, remarkable, and memorable man relapsed and then died from a heroin overdose.

In my early career as a therapist, I worked with people with addictions:

  • I witnessed firsthand the struggles some had with getting and staying sober.
  • I also had the privilege of witnessing people who successfully remained clean and sober.
  • It is often difficult to understand the reasons some are able to maintain sobriety and others are not.
  • There are so many emotional, psychological, cognitive, physiological and spiritual reasons at play.
  • What is clear is that, drug addiction and alcoholism is a horrific disease and that many addictive individuals and the people that love them are so affected by it.

It is my hope if you or someone you love is struggling with addiction that you will seek treatment and a self-help program that will help you with recovery.
