A new perspective
Addiction is a disease whose main symptom is the inability to stop substance abuse or behavior despite experiencing problems in various areas of life. To achieve lasting change, it is necessary to work with the person’s way of thinking and achieve a profound change of perspective. This change in life will allow you to give up the habit that is causing you problems, and above all, enjoy a higher quality of life that will be reflected in relationships and other personal areas.
Self-esteem and freedom
Codependency is a condition developed by people who have been immersed in prolonged situations of high emotional stress. These people have become accustomed to living in emotionally damaging situations, using behavioral strategies that have served to withstand dramatic situations but that now produce a feeling of emptiness, low self-esteem and lack of freedom. We work with our patients to help them acquire and use new tools of life and thought that allow them to live more satisfactorily and enjoy your relationships.
“As soon as an addict accesses a deeper form of satisfaction than is possible through self-destructive behavior, the way out will naturally open before him.”
“I simply convinced myself that for some mysterious reason I was invulnerable and would not be hooked. But the addiction does not negotiate and little by little it spread inside me like the fog.”
“The mindset and behavior of addicts and alcoholics is totally irrational until you understand that we are completely powerless in the face of our addiction, and that unless we have structured help, we have no hope.”
“The best way out is always through.”
“A deep sense of love and belonging is an irreplaceable need for all people. We are biologically, cognitively, physically, and spiritually programmed to love, be loved, and belong. When those needs are not met, we don’t function as we should. We break. We fell apart. We get numb. We feel pain. We cause pain to others. We got sick.”
