Addictions can have a very strong hold of us and can make us feel like we can not survive unless….If we just…then everything will be okay. The temporary escape from our lives is just that…temporary. Life is full of stress and when we learn to handle stress in healthy ways, the chains of our addictions can be lifted. Seeing a therapist can help us identify the feelings we are running from, remove the source of those feelings, and help us figure out how to cope with our emotions in healthier ways. Reach out to a professional who can help you move through the distress in your life: body, mind, and soul.
