Your recovery from a “-ism” is dependent on how much you put into the process.
I have worked with problem drinkers and their partners for over 25 years. Suffice to say, recovery from alcoholism and/or codependent behaviors can be difficult and a life-long process. It can, however, be made easier with proper support and a therapist who is knowledgeable in treating addictions; and supporting recovery.
AA and the 12-steps help you to not drink one day at a time. However, adding psychodynamic therapy helps you to explore emotions to uncover how your subconscious thought relate-and trigger-your addiction. We will work closely together to acknowledge your deep-seated feelings, and to help you prepare to identify and avoid temptations during your ongoing recovery.
