Substance Abuse Treatment in Tampa, FL
A big part of substance-abuse counseling is about learning from consequences and developing risk avoidance. With substance abuse, it is not the damage to the body, it's the damage to your life. Substance abuse interferes with the process of learning, attention and goal directed behavior.
Insight is useful but it's not enough especially with well learned substance abuse habits. Habitual behavior is resistant to change. Substance abusers do not respond well to learning new behavior to achieve rewards, they respond poorly to punishment and they are lack motivation to avoid something bad happening to them.
Problem substance use leads to automatic behavior. It makes you insensitive to nuanced new learning about adverse life events. It is like a habit performed irrespective of the outcome. When substance abuse becomes a habit, the habit is performed no matter what results. Substance abusers are quick habit formers.
Substance abuse counseling will focus on the brain system that needs to guide you back to the costs of substance abuse. It will address having a fixed mindset that keeps you trapped in a destructive habit.
Substance abuse counseling will develop your strengths in forming habits to assist you in developing positive life habits. Substance abuse counseling will focuses on training awareness of goal directed behavior. More importantly, mindfulness training will teach you when goal directed behavior is off-line and bad habits are running on autopilot.
There are a number of different treatment programs that can be used to help people living with substance abuse. This outpatient program will provide the best assessment possible to help you determine if this approach to substance abuse counseling is an option for you. The assessment is based on your substance use history, and your psychological strengths and weaknesses.
Life Style Coaching for Mindful Alcohol Use
Life Style Coaching for Mindful Alcohol Use is a relatively new program that conceptualizes drinking as a life habit, dangerous for some, but pleasurable and positive for others. Learning to engage in alcohol consumption in a positive and healthy manner is possible. This coaching program is designed to help individuals develop the insight and skills necessary to be a moderate, mindful drinker.
Your alcohol use is a lifestyle habit that is made up of the decisions you make on a daily basis, the routines you engage in, your social network, personality features, family involvement and the influence of cognitive-emotional habits related to “alcohol expectancies.” Drinking exists on a spectrum and responsible drinking requires knowing your coping weaknesses and learning from your mistakes. Once drinking moves from abuse to dependency, brain patterns are significantly altered such that the addiction becomes a brain disorder, a bad habit that fundamentally re-wires the brain. This program is designed to effectively transform the triggers that interfere with a balance approach to alcohol consumption such that alcohol dependency does not occur.
