DRUG ADDICTION THERAPY

Drug addiction therapy is designed for people struggling with drug addictions, drug abuse, and drug binging. Whether the drugs used are marijuana, cocaine, opiates, pain pills, or others, improper use of drugs can lead a person to a sad, helpless, empty place. One of the hallmark challenges people with drug problems face is that depending on the type, intensity, and amount of drug taken, they have often become accustomed to changing their moods quickly through artificial means. As humans, we all have stressors and pressures in our lives that we often wish would "just go away." But the truth is that an important part of becoming a healthy, happy, successful person in life is learning how to handle uncomfortable situations with psychological and emotional endurance. When a person meets challenges by quickly checking out with drugs, the immediate-reward is a high and numbing effect, but it comes with a cost. The costs may include declining health, strained relationships with family and friends, poor performance at school, work, and home, legal issues, and lost opportunities.

In drug addiction therapy, clients gain clarity and insight into the root causes of their drug use, develop an understanding of their triggers, and learn how to cope with them in more successful, healthy ways. Dr. Nourmand emphasizes teaching clients inner-self skills, whereby clients become more personally refined, more in-tune with themselves and develop more solid awareness of why they think what they think, feel what they feel, and do what they do. Living with such thoughtfulness and deliberateness allows a person to make categorically better decisions in life. When people make better decisions in their lives, the need for drugs drops.
