My experience with behavioral health therapy for addiction

I’m sure many of us have had experiences with addiction. It can be hard to admit that you have an issue and need help. For me, the hardest part was dealing with the guilt and shame of my situation. When I finally worked up the courage to seek out professional help, I was scared but desperate for a change.

I began going to behavioral health therapy for my addiction, and it has made such a huge difference in my life. I always felt so understood in my therapist’s office, like I could freely talk about anything that was on my mind without any judgment or criticism. My therapist used multiple modalities such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, attachment work, and emotional regulation exercises to holistically address every aspect of addiction treatment.

What kept me motivated throughout treatment were those little moments when I could feel REAL progress in my journey toward recovery. Seeing myself heal as time went on was one of the most satisfying feelings that I have ever experienced.

Going through recovery can be difficult at times, but it’s always worth it in the end. Behavioral health therapy has not only helped me tackle addiction issues, but it has also enabled me to become a better version of myself with improved mental wellbeing overall.
