A personal note from Alan Simberg Ph.D.

What’s most important to me with the people that come to see me is that they don’t feel that there is something wrong with them, or that they’re bad or that they are broken. I really believe that we are all just variations of one another and if we can learn to respect ourselves and respect each other and realize that we all have very similar struggles and that the important thing is to identify those struggles without judgment. Just see them for what they are and learn how to manage them so that we can develop peace of mind in our lives. I think that’s an essential component of what I bring in the work that I do with the clients that come to see me.

I find that with the economic pressure in today's society and certainly all the work pressures that people worry a lot and of course, worry and anxiety are very closely related and unfortunately many people don’t know how to manage their stress and they will resort to either drugs or alcohol.

If a person comes to see me that’s drinking alcohol I don’t see it as my job to make them stop. I see it as my job to help them to decide if they want to stop and I also help them to understand how their drinking could be affecting their lives.

One of the strategies I use is known as cognitive behavioral therapy which very simply put is a way of working with people to help them understand how their thoughts can influence their mood. I also talk with them about nutrition from the point of view of how blood sugar can affect mood and how eating three meals a day and keeping their blood sugar within a particular range helps to stabilize their mood.

I think if I had to identify one main purpose or one main intention I have when clients come to see me it would be to help that person, or that couple or that family to accomplish the goals that they came in to see me about and for me not to set the agenda for them but for me to meet their needs as best as I can.

Back To Living: Action Strategies to Recover from Your Addiction

Are you, or is someone you know, struggling to maintain recovery from addiction? If you answered yes, I want you to know it isn’t unusual for anyone to experience challenges during their recovery. Having difficulty maintaining progress isn’t a reflection of your character or worth as a person.

I wrote this book to help individuals who are struggling with recovery efforts to provide an understanding of the barriers to recovery, as well as practical action-based strategies to help manage recovery as effectively and consistently as possible.

I hope the information contained within this book’s chapters will help you have a fuller understanding of what contributes to addiction, and that it will provide you with the tools you need to increase the quality of your recovery experience. I believe that awareness and useful strategies that are put into action with reasonable consistency, provide the best opportunity for achieving goals.

I wish you all the best!
