Good Bye Crack!

During one of the STOPP substance abuse groups,  we held a contest and asked group members to submit a break-up letter to their drug of choice or to their addiction as a whole. We received four entries. This is one of the letters….Show your love by leaving a like or a comment!!

“Dear Crack Cocaine, 

It started out as fun. When you came into my life I had no worries, no pain, and I didn’t care about family or friends. You made me feel happy all the time. Nothing lasts forever and something changed. I lost my apartments and spent all my money on you. I hit bottom and I hated myself. So one day I said “That’s enough.” I picked myself up and threw you out of my life. Now today I can say I love myself and you cannot have me anymore! 

Sincerely, 

Your ex.”

I am experienced in counseling individual's suffering from depression, anxiety, substance use, as well as those having relationship issues, and low self -esteem. My particular area of interest is with the LGBT community and those diagnosed with HIV.
In the therapy room, my first goal is to listen carefully to the individual sitting in front of me creating a supportive and comfortable environment to freely express themselves. Together, we will set goals for therapy and plan what will be accomplished in our sessions.  Your feedback is encouraged as this is the best tool to know if your goals are being met and progress is being made.
