Suncrest Counseling understands that addictions are hard to overcome and that they can create a sense of powerlessness and hopelessness. Being addicted, regardless of the addiction, can tear at our self worth and identity. Too often we label ourselves as an addict who lacks willpower, or has inherent deficits and flaws that make overcoming an addiction impossible.
At Suncrest Counseling, we believe it is not about willpower or insufficiency. We believe people who have addictions are people with worth, who are valuable, lovable and can be freed from addiction’s binding chains. Our therapists will help you rediscover your inner strength and remove the mask of addiction so you can claim your true self.
Suncrest Counseling is a state-licensed, substance-abuse treatment center. Alcohol is one of the most commonly abused substances. In some cases, individuals consider it “socially acceptable” since it is legal. Due to its prevalence in everyday life, it can be difficult to come to terms that drinking has become a problem and, in fact, may ignore that alcohol is a highly-addictive substance that can be extremely difficult to stop. Understanding and identifying whether your drinking has become a serious issue and being honest with yourself, is the first step toward the path of recovery. Often times, people may drink to deal with overwhelming feelings of stress, anxiety or depression. The reality is your drinking may be a dangerous fix to numb or cover up feelings that need to be addressed. Suncrest Counseling realizes that people are not the same and what may work for one client, may not work for another. Therefore, we write a customized treatment plan that is tailored around your needs and goals. Your treatment may incorporate several components, including structured group and/or individual counseling, neurofeedback, and addiction medication management. You can choose the frequency for the counseling; some clients come daily, others come once a week. We have a talented staff that offers a multi-dimensional approach to offer you the best therapy for your alcohol addiction.We want to help you along your journey to sobriety through support, empathy, compassion and exploration, so your life, once again, has meaning.

Many people suffer physical or mental traumas in their lives that introduce them into a world they never thought possible. It may be innocent like an accident or chronic pain that sends you to a physician who prescribes you medication.

Painkillers, often times known as opiates, are narcotics derived from opium or opium synthetics. They are the easiest drugs to get addicted to since most of them are pain relievers. This class of addiction is extremely dangerous, whether prescribed or obtained elsewhere. Individuals develop a tolerance to painkillers, which requires them to increase the dosage to get the same effect. Over time this increase can lead to physical and psychological harm. Often times, individuals who suffer from addictions may not realize how out of control their addiction has become until serious consequences occur. Let us help you before you reach that point.

Individuals with sexual addiction are often preoccupied with sexual fantasies, acting out or engaging in risky sexual behavior. Their lives are dominated with sex and the thought of sex; so much so that other activities and healthy interactions with loved ones become seriously affected. A person with sexual compulsivity may initially be involved with healthy and normal sexual situations, but eventually develop into an obsession and/or compulsion. Fantasies, and sometimes actual acts, may be well outside the realm of most people’s idea of what is acceptable sexual behavior. Some examples of sexual compulsive behaviors are affairs, seeking prostitutes, cybersex, voyeurism, fetishism and pedophilia. Often the sexual compulsion persists even though the person is fully aware of the financial, health, mental, spiritual or social consequences.
Food addiction, also known as compulsive overeating, occurs when an individual engages in frequent episodes of uncontrolled eating or bingeing. During such episodes, they may feel frenzied or out of control, often consuming food past the point of being comfortably full. Bingeing in this way is generally followed by feelings of guilt and depression. Compulsive overeaters will typically eat when they are not hungry. They also obsess about food, spending excessive amounts of time and thought devoted to food and secretly planning about eating alone. While compulsive overeaters tend to be overweight or obese, persons of normal or average weight can also be affected. In addition to binge eating, compulsive overeaters can also engage in grazing behavior where they return to pick at food throughout the day. Left untreated, compulsive overeating can be harmful, even deadly. When dealing with food addiction we look for underlying issues, such as depression and anxiety that may impact the behavior. We also look at emotional issues, which may create a loss of attachment and emotional safety with loved ones which can impact one’s eating patterns.
Problem gambling is an online or in-person behavior, which causes disruptions in any major area of life: psychological, physical, social or vocational. Also known as “Pathological” or “Compulsive” Gambling, this progressive addiction is characterized by an increasing preoccupation with gambling, a need to bet more money more frequently, restlessness or irritability when attempting to stop, “chasing” losses, and loss of control manifested by continuation of the behavior in spite of the consequences. No longer limited to casino gambling or off-track betting, online gambling has opened up a whole new world of options. Gambling addiction is treated like any other process addiction. You can regain control of your life and Suncrest Counseling is here to help.
