Addiction Treatment and Relapse Prevention
As anyone living with addiction knows it can be challenging to ask for help, develop an effective recovery program and then maintain it. Many alcoholics/addicts, as well as their family, experience significant denial about their problem and what it takes to resolve it. To address this, Dr. Grinstead helps patients to identify and manage the self-defeating patterns of denial that set them up for failure.
Dr. Grinstead’s methodologies help patients effectively prevent relapse from occurring, or stop their relapse process once it starts. He uses addiction-focused psychotherapy with people who want to recover from substance or process addictions, including eating addiction, and the use of other self-destructive behaviors.
With over 30 years of experience and expertise in the addiction treatment field, Stephen F. Grinstead, Dr. AD specializes in working with people in recovery from any type of addictive disorder. He has been implementing the Gorski-CENAPS® Relapse Prevention model since 1986. His passion is assisting patients to develop effective relapse prevention plans that stop the cycle of debilitating pain and suffering from addictive disorders on patients and families—it is possible to Stop Suffering NOW.
Dr. Grinstead’s philosophy is one of respect. He believes in treating each patient with dignity, meeting them where they are at and accepting their psychological, cultural, and spiritual values as their reality.
Dr. Grinstead knows that a collaborative approach ensures that people are treated with compassion and respect. He believes that when people are engaged in developing their own treatment plan, they are much more likely to be successful. That is why Dr. Grinstead engages patients on their difficult journey as their coach and guide. He makes sure they are packed and ready.
