(employing both harm reduction and abstinence based techniques)
Do you experience any of this?
You lost control over your life, job, and relationship.
You wonder how and why you ended up in this situation.
You don't know you're doing what you're doing.
You ask yourself: "Why me?".
You have no idea how to stop.
You can not handle overwhelming emotions anymore.
Together we can explore:
the meaning, function, and consequence of your substance abuse,
which negative emotions you are trying to flee from,
how your substance abuse fits your personality and your relationship pattern,
how to assume a more warm, acceptable, flexible attitude toward yourself,
how to overcome your weaknesses and inadequacies in dealing with life events,
and which internal wounds you are trying to medicate by yourself.
