    Addiction Help

    in Psychology

     
    My name is Todd Branston - I've been working in the field of addictions for over 27 years, within the inpatient and outpatient settings, as well as working in the Department of Corrections, the Director of Counseling for a large chemical dependency hospital, to where I'm currently employed doing in-home chemical dependency engagement with (mostly) seniors. I am part of an experts forum on chemical dependency and have a podcast on Xtremeoctaneradio.com every Tuesday @ 7 PM EDT
    I can answer questions related to getting/staying sober, queries related to support for loved ones, support groups, relapse prevention, communication skills, alcohol and drug pharmacology, and finding ways to increase joy within sobriety. I see sobriety as a skill and understand that recovery looks different for everybody.  When you listen to my show you’ll hear information on harm-reduction, methadone, mindfullness, stages-of-change, as well as a host of therapies including RET and CBT.
    I am a fan of mental-health and anti-craving medications as it seems to me that addiction is largely biochemical and that relapse is largely the result of cravings. I make the distinction between addiction and dependence as when we're talking about addiction we need to talk about craving.  When someone talks about being addicted to xbox or watching TV we are talking about a behavioral compulsion - while they might feel the same they are indeed different. It is my experience that it is important to make the distinction as treatment for both of these afflictions can be different.

    Substituting Addiction for Intimacy with Carol the Coach

    in Self Help

    Carol the Coach knows what damage Sexual Addiction can do to a relationship. To offset the damage she inteviews founder and Clinical Director of the Center for Relational Recovery in Leesburg Virginia, Michelle Mays LPC, CSAT  who has over 13 years experience in providing individual, couples and group therapy to those struggling with sexual addiction, trauma and relationship issues.


     


    Michelle is a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist trained under Dr. Patrick Carnes. She is also trained in Post Induction Therapy by Pia Mellody for the treatment of relational trauma. Michelle is sought out as a writer, trainer and speaker on sexual addiction, partners of sex addicts, the developmental model of trauma treatment, and relationship issues. In addition, she mentors and supervises upcoming therapists.


    Michelle will be talking about addiction as an attachment disorder (intimacy disorder) and the way in which addicts often attach to the substance or process they are using compulsively as a substitute for meaningful and consistent attachment in their relationships and the way that this is set up in childhood, and how recovery must address attachment and learning how to ‘do relationships’ if it is going to be successful long-term for the person.
