My preferred way of working with addiction is working from the self medicating hypothesis
The self medicating hypothesis provides a humanistic psychological understanding for addictive behaviour, one which sees people with addictions as a fundamentally vulnerable population. It is an understanding which counters the horrific judgements and stigmas addicts place upon themselves, to say nothing of similar or harsher judgments others place on them. Furthermore, addictions evoke alternating reactions of concern and intolerance in family and friends who witness the problem.
Therapeutic work takes a lot of courage; for clients to come forward and take the risk of finding out about themselves and trusting another with their experience and wounding. I endeavour to honour that and treat all my clients with the humility and honour they deserve.
