What is addiction?

Addiction is a disorder which causes malfunction of the brain’s reward circuits. According to NIDA, up to 60% of addiction sufferers inherit the disorder genetically, while the remaining 40% may have damaged their reward system by overusing it. Consequently, people with this disorder seek to reinforce their blunted reward feelings by seeking out substances or processes which will increase pleasurable/rewarding feelings. Once this happens, there will be knock on effects or chemical cascades to other parts of the brain affecting functions like judgement and impulse control. This is why ‘addicts’ or alcoholics cannot control their using. Addiction is a chronic condition (American Society of Addiction Medicine, 2011) which means that it lingers, and symptoms will return if it is not treated.

Recovery Zones – Groups 

Substance Dependency Process Group
Monday Evenings 6:00 – 7:30PM
This group is specifically for clients with a primary chemical addiction. Paired with the Substance Dependency Psycho-educational Group, clients who are also attending individual counselling have the opportunity to share and learn from peers in various levels of their counselling. The group is facilitated by the counsellor, but clients are encouraged to suggest specific topics that are important and relevant to them. Discussion topics will complement individual theraphy work as well as structured group educational materials.

Process Addiction Group
Tuesday Evenings 6:00 – 7:30PM
Clients with a primary process addiction (non-chemical, such as gambling, sex, relationships, internet, etc) are offered an opportunity to suggest and participate in discussions relevant to their personal addiction and recovery. Paired with the Process Addiction Psycho-educational Group, this format is less structured. Clients are able to relate to common issues with their peers such as navigating daily life and maintaining healthy boundaries and controls over addictive behaviours. The group setting allows the sharing of common experience to gain empathy and understanding from their peers. 

Relapse Prevention Continuing Care
Wednesday Evenings 6:00 – 7:30PM
This group caters to clients who have entered later stages of recovery. They will have completed residential and/or intensive outpatient counselling and be offered the opportunity to continue their work in the Relapse Prevention Group. This group facilitates an environment for clients to review and share recovery experiences, aftercare plans, sobriety goals and how they are navigating early recovery outside of structured recovery environments. Some groups may involve specific and helpful education pieces while others will be more open for client issues and suggestions for discussions. The groups are facilitated by a counsellor but clients are encouraged to take an active role and bring to the group issues relevant to them.

Substance Dependency Psycho-educational Group
Thursday Evenings 6:00 – 7:30PM
This group is specifically for clients recovering from substance addiction. Clients will navigate specific topics relevant to their therapy and recovery in a structured and supportive environment. Educational material is presented in a clear and applicable manner, to complement and support material being addressed in individual counselling. Topics will be presented on a rotating schedule so that every client, regardless of where they are in their counselling process, will receive all relevant information so that they complete theraphy with the tools necessary to maintain their sobriety. Recovery tools such as CBT techniques and programme materials will be demonstrated and applied in a group setting, making understanding more tangible.

Process Addiction Psycho-educational Group
Friday Evenings 6:00 – 7:30PM
This group demographic is specifically for clients recovering from process addictions. Educational material will be presented in a clear and applicable manner, to complement and support materials being addressed in individual counselling. Specific to process addictions, some behaviours need not be completely eliminated, but rather clients are required to identify when behaviours have become addictive. Topics are presented on a rotating schedule so that every client will receive all relevant information so that they complete theraphywith the tools necessary to maintain their sobriety. Recovery tools such as CBT techniques and materials found in the program book are demonstrated and applied in a group setting, making understanding more tangible. Clients learn how to establish boundaries and parameters that restore them to a functional, healthy lifestyle and arrest the addictive behaviour that is causing harm.
