Addiction Counseling

Addiction can take many forms and can be experienced with both substances (drugs and alcohol, for example) and behaviors (such as gambling). Typically, addiction involves repeating an activity despite the problems or negative consequences it is causing in your life. Addiction can cause changes in the brain’s wiring that make it difficult to stop the drug or behavior. But the good news is, you don’t have to figure it out on your own. If you or someone you know is suffering from an addiction, contact one of our addiction counseling specialists today to get help.

The biggest problem in your life is what you drink, smoke, snort or inject into yourself. To bad for you that it the least of your problems. Drugs and alcohol is like a turning off the light in a dirty storage room that needs to be clean. When you decide to turn on the light by stop using drugs you still have to do the hard work of clean out your storage. I would like to be right beside you doing the heaving lifting.

So called “experts” on “sexual addiction” erroneously take clients with paraphilic disorders into treatment. These paraphilic disorders, such as voyeuristic, exhibitionistic, frotteuristic , masochism, pedophilic, fetishistic, and nonconsensual behavior disorders are wrongly placed in “sexual addiction” treatment under the excuse that these behaviors often include sexual obsession. The “sex addiction” “expert” is then unable to adequately treat these, by definition, deviant behaviors.

It is important to find the right approach for treating addiction. Not everyone that walks through the door fits the same criteria or causation for their addiction. I take a mindful approach to explore several areas of the inner YOU to find the best approach. This is an open dialogue to find exactly the best way to heal from substance use.

I use a 12-step model frequently but understand that approach is not for everyone. I have used CBT to treat addictions. I do not "force" 12-step meetings.

— Jessica Butler, Associate Professional Clinical Counselor in Denver, CO

I have worked in four treatment centers over the last 28 years. I see a huge interplay between issues related to addiction and trauma. I believe that for some people their path to addiction came as a means to self-medicate pain. I also believe that there is a strong physiological component to addiction and it doesn't reflect weakness of will. I support 12-step recovery but also alternative self -help groups such as Refuge Recovery which has a Buddhist meditation component.
