Addiction counselling is a form of mental health counselling that understands the addictive process. Addictions have an effect mentally and physically of an individual and a holistic approach to addictions assist a person’s recovery.
The process of addictions counselling not only addresses the identified addiction but the co-existing issues. At the Clifton Clinic a variety of techniques are tailored to meet the needs of the individual client, the counsellor and client will work together to achieve the desired result of the treatment process.
Our addiction counsellors have expert training to assist individuals in making extensive and ongoing changes in their behaviour. We endeavour to edify clients about addiction, and to also offer support and encouragement.
Our addictions counsellors recognise the potential for substance use disorders and behavioural addictions to mimic a variety of medical and psychological disorders, and In addition, they recognise the potential for medical and psychological disorders to co-exist with addiction.
Addiction effects so many individuals in ways that sometimes they are unable to see and the consequences are often more evident in areas around alcohol, drugs and food. However, in areas such as sex addiction, the effects can be difficult to see until there is a crisis. Counsellors at the Clifton Clinic support our clients through difficult times no matter where they are on their journey, and continue to support them until they are ready to move on to a life of continued freedom from addictions.
