Addictions

When you have an addiction, it takes hold of your entire world and the people in it.
There are two types of addiction: 
Substance: alcohol, drugs 
  • Behavioural: gambling, video game, eating, work, sex, etc. 
  • Addiction happens when we try to cope with issues as best as we can until we can't anymore- we reach for something outside of ourselves to escape.
You're here because you've tried to stop on your own.

Anger Management

“This isn’t who I am.” Have you broken something by accident or yelled at someone you shouldn’t have?
Have you caused a scene and felt embarrassed about it? It is possible to be caught by surprise at how much rage we have stored in our body. Shutting the feelings inside could mean that it’ll boil over. Acting aggressively can also become a habit. If you notice that your coping methods aren’t working, it’s time to let someone help. When there’s motivation to change, talk therapy will work to manage anger.
