At Passages, we understand you are abusing drugs and alcohol to self-medicate underlying conditions in your life. To heal from chemical dependency related issues, you will need to start by healing and treating the underlying conditions driving your addiction. Many things could be causing your addiction, such as low self-esteem, trauma, financial stress, career changes, difficulties in a relationship, chemical imbalances in the body, or false beliefs you tell yourself. The goal of treatment at Passages is to identify these underlying causes and address them in individual therapy so that they no longer lead to drug and alcohol use.
While in treatment at Passages, you will work with a licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor who will help you unmask the problems causing your substance abuse. The important thing is to find out what is driving your addiction in the first place so we know exactly what to focus on during your time with us at Passages, and this is a focus of Chemical Dependency Counseling. Through one-on-one therapy sessions with your Chemical Dependency Counselor, you will work on identifying triggers for use, developing a relapse prevention plan, and work towards creating a lifestyle that is free of substances.
