ADHD & Addictions

It is common for adults with untreated ADHD to struggle with addictions as a way to cope with the chaos in their lives. These addictive tendencies can include overuse of alcohol, drugs, shopping, eating, etc., and can be the cause of even more problems and challenges for those with untreated ADHD. Roya understands the complex relationship that can weave untreated ADHD and addictions together, and is skilled in working with clients who are in recovery or in treatment for their addiction. Roya’s coaching follows the path led by Dr. Stanton Peele, a leading expert in addictions and non-12 step recovery programs:
“People get themselves into addictions for understandable reasons and people can get themselves out by being mindful of who they are and who they can and want to be.”

When I work with adults who are in treatment or in recovery, my coaching focuses specifically on creating a life vision, gaining new life skills, developing more mindfulness, and identifying one’s choice, accountability, and responsibility in one’s circumstances.
