Addiction and Recovery

Sadly, addiction to drugs and alcohol are a scourge that is tearing families and communities apart. Overdose deaths alone topped 96,000 in 2022, while thousands more died due to alcohol-related incidents, according to the National Center for Drug Abuse Statistics. If you or your loved ones are struggling with addiction, it’s crucial to seek out treatment and support.

Addressing Addiction and Confronting Challenges

There is no quick fix for addiction, and maintaining control may require constant vigilance. Many forms of treatment can help. It’s crucial to closely examine each patient, however, to develop an effective care plan. One person’s struggle may be vastly different from another’s. 

It’s crucial to acknowledge problems and to bring them out into the open so that they can be addressed. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy focuses on acknowledging the full extent of one’s problems and challenges. Rather than covering things up, this treatment can help you accept and then address the issues in front of you. Dealing with painful emotions and sensitive topics can be tough, but it’s crucial for fighting addiction and for those who have been impacted by someone else’s struggle.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is also useful for embracing your various emotions and learning how to modify which thoughts they prompt. This can be especially important for people who are struggling with addiction and those who love them. If you need help with addiction in Kansas City, MO,  or throughout the states of Kansas or Missouri, contact Ms. Grant.

Bringing Impulsive Actions Under Control

Many of your actions are guided by the limbic system, which is essentially your brain’s reward center. Feelings of pleasure often stem from this system, and it can influence your actions by priming you for rewards. Unfortunately, this system can become self-destructive if you become addicted to substances, food, or even behaviors, like gambling.

A professional addiction counselor can work with you to understand how your limbic system may be fueling destructive activities. You may also be able to uncover the deeper reasons and emotions that fuel addiction and compulsive behavior. Once things are recognized and out in the open, it’s often easier to treat them.

If you or a loved one are struggling with addiction, and you're seeking in-person treatment in Kansas City or remote treatment throughout Kansas and Missouri, get in touch with Ms. Grant. You can contact her at 913 940 2582.
