Our mission is to provide integrative, creative care from a prism of honor, reverence, and optimism.
Drugs, alcohol, gambling, internet or other types of addiction typically serve a purpose; to numb or distract from pain. Vancouver Integrative Counseling (VIC) can work with those at various stages of their recovery adjunctively with drug and alcohol treatment programs. If inpatient treatment has been completed or isn’t necessary, Vancouver Integrative Counseling (VIC) is able to work addictions as the primary treatment provider as well. We approach addiction in a humane way and view it as a response to trauma. Thus, our goal is to treat underlying traumatic injury to alleviate the need for addictive behavior. Traditional treatment modalities would be employed as well as some progressive approaches, such as Internal Family Systems and EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing).
