Alcohol & Substance Abuse Counseling in Hamden, CT

Are you a recovering alcoholic, a former drug user, or someone who is currently struggling to maintain sobriety? If so, you know first-hand just how difficult it can be to not only admit you have a problem, but to face it head on and commit to a better path. Unfortunately with addiction, the internal struggle never goes away, and it can be exhausting trying to manage on your own.

You don’t have to struggle alone.

Through my private practice, Bergvik Counseling Services, I have been providing alcohol and substance abuse counseling in Hamden, CT and surrounding areas for many, many years.

As an integrative therapist, my approach is much different than that of a tradition therapist. I understand addiction often stems from a need for comfort and support, and that where this need stems from is different for every addict. Through each alcohol or substance abuse counseling session we have together, I promise to treat you as the person you are, not the addict you have become. My office will be a safe place for you to speak openly about your past, how it led you to your present and what your goals are for the future ahead. I will be that support that you need, offering the guidance and tools you need to embark on a lifelong journey towards a more fulfilled, sober life.

Alcoholism and drug addiction are major epidemics that affect millions of American families every year. One could argue that a reason the country has struggled to gain control of this particular problem is that there is no surefire cure for addiction. It is something that requires constant dedication and will. If you are willing to commit, however, I am willing to help you identify and understand your triggers, face them, and overcome them.

Admitting you have a problem is the first step and seeking treatment is the second. The third step, which is often the most important in the long run, is to develop a plan to maintain your sobriety and to no longer view drugs and alcohol as your only means of support. Alcohol and substance abuse counseling ensures that you always have a second option.
