Help Is Always Here: Problems with Alcohol Shouldn’t Stop You from Enjoying Life
Alcohol has always been a difficult topic for people of all ages and genders. The line between social drinking and problem drinking is thin; navigating the difference between those two is not an easy task. For some, alcohol can be escapism from the reality of day-to-day activities or a coping mechanism for various problems. Sometimes problems with alcohol are genetic, but once someone relies on alcohol, the brain adapts and modifies itself to this habit.
The emotional or physical dependence on drinking can affect every aspect of your life. Relationships are harder to hold onto, days can easily slip by you, and your mental state can plummet. It also can affect those around you; seeing you struggle is never something friends and family want you to go through.
At DiRomaTherapy we offer three different types of therapy to help you or someone you love who suffers from problems with alcohol. We provide individual counseling, interventions, and speaking engagements.
Individual counseling is a safe and comfortable space for allowing personalized one-on-one therapy. We’ll discuss your life in-depth and establish rational emotive behavioral therapy. This method enables you to get an individualistic goal and plan to start managing any emotions or thoughts more healthily. This route also sanctions long-term dynamic treatment to sustain recovery and reduce harmful coping mechanisms.
If someone you know struggles heavily from problems with alcohol but either rejects help or won’t seek it: our intervention method may be the best approach. With help from our colleague Lori Williams, we implement two intervention models to establish which one is right for your loved one or friend. The Johnson intervention gathers family and close friends to express the effects of alcohol abuse and the actions that will be implemented if they don’t find the help they need. Systemic intervention is a psychotherapy approach that’s geared towards providing sufficient help in a given timeframe to motivate clients to seek a higher level of care treatment.
We also put on multiple speaking engagements to allow people seeking help and those wanting to help others to learn and understand how alcoholism works and the steps to find help.
