Aromatherapy and the Dynamics of Addiction: Caring for the Addicted and Those Affected

Clients having addiction issues can be challenging for both the client and therapist.  Those living and working with the addicted person have concerns, too.  We will explore the dynamics of addiction/withdrawal/recovery and the impact upon the client, therapist and those close to the client.

Some of the topics being covered include:  co-dependency issues, family roles and relationships, holistic support during addiction/withdrawal/recovery, physical health concerns, psychological and behavioral defense mechanisms, self-esteem issues.

We will examine how essential oil therapies can benefit the addicted client at each stage of the addiction/withdrawal/recovery process.
