Orlando Addiction Counseling & Substance Abuse Therapy Services | Addictions Therapists and Substance Abuse Counselors Offices in our offices located in Southwest Orlando, Winter Park, East Orlando, Lake Mary, & Clermont Florida.
Do you or your teen suffer from some type of addiction? Have you noticed that your addiction has interfered with your life? Do you feel that there is an underlying reason for this addiction?
Addictions can be many different things. There are sexual addictions, gambling addictions, alcohol addictions, drug addictions, and many more. These addictions are symptoms of an underlying pain, whether it is physical or mental. No matter what kind of addiction it is, the fact that it is there shows that a person is trying to cope with their pain. Therefore, in order to treat the addiction, the source of the emotional hurt or trauma needs to be treated. Whether you have some idea of what that pain might be, or aren’t sure about what it could be, addictions counseling with trauma therapies can get to the root of the hurt and free you from your addiction.

Codependency | Counseling for codependency issues in Orlando, Clermont, Winter Park, Lake Mary FL
Do you feel the need to keep everyone happy, but deny yourself the same pleasure? Have you noticed that your opinion of yourself is based on what others think of you? Do you feel like you’re the one who has to help fix other people’s issues, despite any pain that you’re going through? There are many troubles that individuals go through when they are codependent, but realizing it might just be the hardest step. It is, however, the first step on the road to recovering from it. Counseling can help you by working through and issues that you might have and by creating boundaries that are much healthier for your everyday life. Always remember, you don’t have to suffer, you deserve true happiness too.
Like any other addiction, a sexual addiction can be seen as a coping mechanism for an individual. It has been estimated that 60% of individuals who have this addiction were sexually abused when they were children, and for these individuals it is possible that this abuse is where the addiction stems from. If you suffer from this type of addiction, there are ways that counseling could work for you. Our counselors will work with you to help you recover from whatever the root cause is, as well as help you build healthy, reliable relationships with those around you. No one has to simply live their life with an addiction, and with some work and maybe a little help you could live the healthy, addiction free lifestyle that you deserve.
