Addictions counselling is for anyone suffering with what they feel is an unhealthy relationship with drugs, alcohol, food, sex, technology, and/or other dependencies and compulsions.
STRC specializes in many different therapy methods that can help you or your loved ones cope with their addictions, and in many cases, overcome them completely. Addiction is often thought of as a disease – an affliction that is passed down through our DNA, or something we contract at some point in our lives; however we tend to believe it is something more complex. As stated by world-renowned addictions expert, Dr Gabor Maté:
"the source of addictions is not to be found in genes but in the early childhood environment… all addictions originate in trauma and emotional loss."
At STRC, we believe that by treating the source of the problem, we can treat the addictive behaviour, and help create a better life for those afflicted by trauma and the maladaptive coping behaviours they present. Our aim is to treat sufferers of addiction and trauma with compassion and honesty, in a holistic approach that makes sense for them.
