LMTV #241: Action-Based Addiction Recovery (Alan Simberg, PhD, LMFT, LCDC)

March 20 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Addiction is a complex and pervasive condition characterized by compulsive and harmful pursuit of a substance or behavior that is believed to provide a sense of euphoria while inevitably leading to adverse consequences. We’ve all heard of alcohol and drug addiction, but it is possible to become addicted to many other things, including gambling, eating, sex, and even video games. The negative side of addiction impacts not only physical, emotional and mental health but also relationships, work, and overall well-being.

Recovering from any form of addiction is a challenging journey that individuals undertake in order to regain control of their lives. Regardless of the specific nature of the addiction, the recovery process requires a combination of self-awareness, resilience, and external support. A fundamental aspect of addiction recovery is acknowledging the problem and embracing a commitment to change. This self-awareness serves as a catalyst for the transformative journey ahead, as individuals confront the root causes of their addiction and begin to understand the impact on their lives.

For this episode of Life Mastery TV, I’m delighted to welcome a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor to help us understand the nature of both addiction and recovery. My guest, Alan Simberg, has over 50 years of experience as a therapist and counselor and has written his own book entitled Back to Living: Action Strategies to Recover from your Addiction. Alan will be sharing from his deep background as we delve into this difficult and fascinating topic. Here is a sampling of what we plan to discuss:

* The Nature of Addiction
* The Path to Recovery
* External Support
* 12-Step Programs
* Alternate Strategies

Recovering from addiction is a profound and transformative experience that encompasses self-awareness, external support, and a commitment to change. It is a process that demands resilience, honesty, and a willingness to confront the underlying issues that contribute to dependency. The combination of professional help, support networks, and personal determination can help you embark on a path towards rebuilding your life and rediscovering a sense of purpose and well-being.
