The Center for Addiction Recovery: C.A.Re at The Juniper Center
Sometimes life takes us where we don’t plan to go. At those times, seeking help from someone knowledgeable about what you’re going through can make all the difference in the world. Whether you love someone who is addicted, are the child or adult child of someone who is/was addicted, you are in recovery yourself and want counseling from someone who understands recovery and recovery programs, or you are struggling with an addiction yourself, we can help you on your road to a better life.
If you are uncertain if you are addicted, here is a list of questions to consider. Please keep in mind that it is normal to believe you are in control, even when you aren’t.
Do you ask yourself if you or someone you love has lost control of your ability to drink, take medication, eat, gamble, have sex, use the internet, or play video games in a way that is not disruptive or harmful to you or the ones you love?
Is someone telling you that your behavior is a problem?
Are you unable to consistently predict whether or not you can stop once you start?
Do you find yourself planning, thinking about or engaging in the behavior when you need to be tending to other things in your life like relationships, work or school?
We understand how complex and complicated addiction can be. We also understand that addiction is not weakness. Science suggests that it is a malfunction of the reward, motivation, and memory centers of the brain. Given that, we work to help you :
Identify what triggers the centers of the brain that result in compulsive behaviors
Develop strategies for trigger management
Identify and work through issues that fuel compulsive behaviors
- We do this through providing:
- A thorough, collaborative assessment. You and your therapist will decide on the best course of treatment.
- Individual therapy
- Group/skills based therapy
- Couples/Family therapy (when needed)
- Mindfulness Meditation
Addiction does not need to define or ruin your life. Please call us at 847-759-9110, ext. 6 to begin the road to recovery.
