“Therapy is something that can be beneficial to anyone and everyone if you have the willingness to go through that process.” - Josiah Click To Tweet
Therapy is a powerful tool for anyone, and today we’ll focus on the role of therapy for someone who is struggling with addiction. My guest, Josiah, is a licensed therapist who has been in the addiction industry for around five years. He has a past history of addiction, so he deeply understands this topic from various angles.
Early in our conversation, we’ll take a deep dive into why asking whether a therapist has struggled with addiction is the wrong question. This is a common question for addicts to ask, but we compare it to asking an oncologist whether she has ever had cancer before letting her treat yours. We’ll also explore the importance of vulnerability, what to expect when you start going to a therapist for the first time, and much more.“I don’t fix anyone. My goal in therapy isn’t to fix someone. It’s to enable you to see some of the deeper issues that have been leading to these behaviors that haven’t been working for you.” - Josiah Click To Tweet
