Ian Bond's Counselling and Therapy Services, Vancouver, BC

Alcohol & Drug Counselling

Are you struggling with an alcohol and/or drug problem?

  • Use alcohol or another kind of mood-altering drug regularly until you are high, intoxicated or passed out.
  • You can’t stop your use or cut down despite wanting to do so.
  • Your health is being negatively affected.
  • Experience denial even though there is direct feedback and evidence from your partner, friends, family, and/or employer that use of the substance is negatively impacting him or her, and work.
  • Missed out on important family, recreational, or work activities, because they interfere with you using a substance.
  • Experience blackouts, where you can’t remember what happened.
  • You are experiencing physical symptoms such as nausea, shaking, headaches, sweating, anxiety, depression, when you are withdrawing from the substance.

Benefits of counselling and therapy include:

  • Learn more about chemical dependence and assess if it is causing problems in your life.
  • Actively participate in a program of recovery and establish and maintain recovery, which is free from the use of addictive substances. Increase your knowledge about the process of recovery.
  • Heal your past trauma, hurts, grief, or betrayals.
  • Withdraw successfully from mood-altering substance and stabilize emotionally and physically.
  • Learn to cope with stress more effectively.
  • Improve your overall psychological health.
  • Heal and improve your relationships – romantic, social, family, and/or work.
  • Increase success in the main areas of your life.
