The healing process can, and most probably will involve additional emotional pain as progress is made on the journey of change. Healing through this pain is an essential aspect of the recovery process and necessary for the development of new and more productive methods of relating to ourselves and others.

I started my counseling career in clinical assessment and diagnosis of clientele whose drug and/or alcohol use had caused problems with their work, personal or family lives. As a consequence, treatment was mandatory. The treatment strategy at the facility I worked was dictated by policy which enforced complete abstinence from alcohol and illicit drugs, and provided education about the negative effects of these substances on the body, mind, emotions, and which eventually would destroy everything that had been important to them.

Urinalysis would quite often reveal noncompliance with the mandate, invariably resulting in more and worse consequences. Licenses were not reinstated, DSS would continue with foster care instead of returning children to their parents, or a jail term was implemented in court-ordered treatment cases. Unfortunately, most cases were a revolving door. Clients returned as a result of a 2nd or 3rd DUI, parents returned for more of the same treatment, children were further traumatized through various placements in unfamiliar settings which may have been worse than where they came from.

The strategy itself was not at fault. Intervention had taken place. Each client was equipped with the information to make better choices for themselves and as a result, better outcomes for themselves and everyone who is affected by their decisions. Information does not translate into knowledge unless applied to one's life. The changes weren't made, and, guess what? Nothing changed.

Information was not the solution. This population of clients had enough information before they made the decision to do what they did. It is human to ignore what we don't want to be true so we can do what we want to do. It's called denial. Denial works very well to ignore those factors that will interfere with our plans. It is my belief that denial of one's own reality leads to bad decision making. Choices made that result in only short term benefits cause deep let down when the effects of instant gratification wear off. Self deception about one's own reality leads to self-doubt, inner conflict, confusion, low self esteem, frustration, and turmoil. Most often clients use the terms "depression" or "anxiety" to describe all these feelings that are re-felt day after day.

My philosophy of emotional health recovery is based on the precept that we can't make good choices for our lives by denying reality. We have to realize our reality, make lifestyle adjustments to change what we don't like about our selves, and create the life we want to live.

My desire for you in therapy is that you become empowered to realize your strengths, become willing to change the things about yourself that disgust you, and be teachable when it comes to learning and implementing the life skills into your lifestyle. Your personal journey to becoming, or returning to the person you were or want to be is within the total realm of possibilities. You don't have to deny yourself of your potential.
