Many times when an individual suffers from substance abuse or other compulsive behaviors they feel a false sense of power, confidence, and euphoria as well as various other feelings that could be deficient in their lives. Psychotherapy is intended to help individuals identify uncomfortable feelings and sources of distress in order to change, grow and evolve. People who struggle with compulsivity and addictions are unlikely to overcome those behaviors unless they work to address underlying causes with a SUBSTANCE ABUSE/ADDICTION THERAPIST. Working with a therapist is one of the most effective treatments for managing compulsive behaviors and addictions.
