Working with Addictions Lonodn Bridge – alcohol, drugs (e.g. cocaine, marijuana), gambling, sex
I offer a structured approach to working with addictions. In many cases addiction is a manifestation of a hidden difficulty, one which may be much more difficult to spot and define. There may be a lot of causes of addiction and the integrative model helps us consider you from several perspectives (e.g. biological, social, physical, spiritual). This is often sufficient to determine the root cause of your addiction and also to design a unique treatment package for you – cognitive-behavioural, more exploratory with the closer examination of the early patterns of the attachment or the combination of both.
When we meet for the initial consultation session I will be able to hear your story, learn about the addiction and decide the way forward. Together we will be able to choose the right treatment package, which will consist of 6, 12 or 18 sessions. Each package is entitled to one free review session to be used within 8 weeks of the treatment completion.
In general the type of package you choose will depend on the aim of therapy – abstinence, reduction or preventing relapse. These packages are designed as an alternative to seeking a structured support within residential settings.
Package 1 – 6 sessions plus a free review session (within 8 weeks of treatment completion)
• Clients first time in treatment
• Clients unsure about the ultimate goal of therapy
• Clients abstinent but looking for an additional support preventing relapse
Package 2 – 12 sessions plus a free review session (within 8 weeks of treatment completion)
• Clients who have decided to work towards abstinence
• Clients looking for a thorough relapse prevention support
Package 3 – 18 sessions plus a free review session (within 8 weeks of treatment completion)
• Clients determined to receive a thorough package consisting of the exploratory work and relapse prevention
