Alcohol Addiction Counselling

All Addictions are compulsive, repeated and dependent behaviours characterized by a complete loss of control and an overwhelming desire to act regardless of consequences. Addictions can including Alcohol Abuse, Prescriptions Drug Abuse, Narcotics & Substance Abuse, Sexual Behaviour, Pornography, Eating Disorders, Texting, The Internet and Social Media to name but a few. Addictions can have an extremely negative impact on our relationships or our ability to relate in a healthy manner.

If you are experiencing prolonged or recurring periods of compulsive, repetitive and dependent behaviour, there is help and support available. Consulting your GP and accessing a counselling support service are normal ways of addressing addictions.

At Counselling 4 U we provide personal counselling which includes help, support and care for people who suffer with an Addiction. Counselling 4 U is located in Fingal, North Dublin.

 The 12 Steps Addiction Programme

  • Step 1 - We admitted we were powerless over our addiction - that our lives had become unmanageable
  • Step 2 - Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity
  • Step 3 - Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood God
  • Step 4 - Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves
  • Step 5 - Admitted to God, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs
  • Step 6 - Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character

  • Step 7 - Humbly asked God to remove our shortcomings

  • Step 8 - Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all

  • Step 9 - Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others

  • Step 10 - Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it

  • Step 11 - Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood God, praying only for knowledge of God's will for us and the power to carry that out

  • Step 12 - Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to other addicts, and to practice these principles in all our affairs

This version of the 12 steps is an adaptation from the original 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous and is intended for general use with any addictive or dysfunctional behavior.
