The first principle that our treatment is focused on is “building coping skills.” If you’re struggling with addiction, it’s very likely that you have maladaptive coping skills. That means you cope with the struggles and challenges of life with drugs, alcohol, etc. Those coping skills may help you to feel better for a moment. Ultimately, they’re worse for you in the long run (as well as the short run). We can help you to build the kinds of coping skills that are healthy, that can make you happier, that can genuinely improve your life. Moreover, you’ll be able to cope with the challenges life may present you with that much better.
