The Truth About Addiction
Misinformation leaves us susceptible and prevents us from making informed decisions. Learn the truth about addiction and what is actually happening in your brain when you use drugs. Achieve change using science and evidence-based information about drugs and alcohol.

The Change Process
If the change has been difficult, you’re not alone. It’s important to be mindful of the change process and where you are. Together, we will identify the costs and benefits of changing and look at what’s important.

Evaluating Your Relationship with Drugs

Take a look at the unmet needs that problematic substance use has been attempting to fulfill. We’ll identify patterns in your life and learn how living in congruence with your values can change the way you use substances.

Accepting Your Emotions
The foundation of changing your relationship with substances is tolerating your emotions. Through guided exercises, de-escalation, and imagery we’ll work with difficult feelings together so you feel more confident tolerating them on your own.

Overcoming Shame

Shame is the biggest obstacle to change because it requires a major shift in how we think about ourselves. In this program you’ll learn to interrupt self-critical thinking and use self-compassion to increase confidence and motivation.

Managing Urges

Understand what your mind really wants when you’re having an urge. Identify the cycle of problematic use and implement detours to healthier alternatives along the way.

Responsible Drug Use
We use drugs and alcohol for a reason. If you want to maintain a relationship with substances, these basic harm reduction strategies will help you minimize consequences while maximizing benefits.

BONUS #1: Value Inventory

BONUS #2: Worksheet Packet

BONUS #3: Lifestyle Inventory

Values are the principles and standards by which we structure our lives. They inform how we live, who our friends are, and even the job we choose. Understanding our values helps us make decisions that improve our well-being and quality of life. Your values offer a lot of information and guidance when deciding what type of relationship you’d like to have with drugs. This inventory will help you identify the values you honor or violate with your drug use and may also highlight areas of your life that are incongruent with your values -- a trigger for problematic behavior.

This is a very robust resource that will help you unpack various elements of problematic substance use. You're basically getting my entire workbook for free! These worksheets will help you decide whether to moderate or abstain; identify alternative strategies to using; practice healthy communication skills; tolerate unpleasant emotions; combat shame; track urges; use relapse as an opportunity to learn and reflect; and challenge intrusive thoughts about using.

The key to maintaining a healthy relationship with drugs is to also maintain a healthy lifestyle, as it can provide core stability that will make you more resilient against problematic use. Unmet needs are at the core of addiction. By identifying them and coming up with alternative strategies, we can interrupt the need for problematic use.
