Addictions (alcohol, drugs & gambling)

“Addiction is a condition that results when a person ingests a substance (e.g., alcohol, cocaine, nicotine) or engages in an activity (e.g., gambling, sex, shopping) that can be pleasurable but the continuation of which becomes compulsive and interferes with ordinary responsibilities and concerns, such as work, relationships, or health. People who have developed an addiction may not be aware that their behaviour is out of control and causing problems for themselves and others.”


Collectively, we both have over 25 years’ experience in the field of drug and alcohol abuse through our extensive work in an adult residential rehabilitation centre for those in recovery from substance abuse and in our private practice.

Addiction is complex in nature with many individual differences between those caught in its cycle of abuse. In this way we explore unique drivers and dispositions that come together to conspire against healthy choices for each individual’s well-being.

Likewise, we endeavour to support new awareness in those who struggle with their addictive cycle, to evoke in them an interest to discover what is working, and what is missing in their ability to solve problems and dealing and/or engaging with life in general.
