Anxiety & Stress: This Coronavirus outbreak is stressful. Fear and anxiety about the virus can cause strong emotions and may become overwhelming. Learn how to cope with stress so that you can feel better and help the people you care about.

Everyone reacts differently to stressful situations. How you respond to the outbreak can depend on many things: your fears for yourself or your loved ones, attributes that make you different from other people, and the unique challenges in your life. We help you to analyze the roots of your stress and learn to relieve it.

Substance Abuse: The cycle of addiction and substance abuse can be particularly challenging during the Coronavirus outbreak. There are many stressors that can lead to increased substance use or a return to old habits: temporary loss of a job, isolation, stress, and boredom. Connect with others at Kemet to discuss strategies for recovery.

  • Drug & Alcohol Use, Alcoholism, Relapse Prevention.
  • Education about substance use: stages of change, brain disease model for recovery
  • Impacts on personal, work, and family life

Sex Addiction: Is sexual compulsion ruining your life? Are there behaviors you can’t seem to stop? Do you feel alone with nowhere to turn?

We have weekly groups or individual sessions that target unhealthy behaviors including:

  • Pornography: Spending hours secretly on pornography sites
  • Destructive Sexual Behavior: having risky sex with “escorts” or other people you find online

Sex addiction can be a very difficult cycle to break on your own: it is isolating and often carries a great deal of personal shame. At Kemet, we know how to help. Connect the the pre-eminent expert in Northern Virginia, with decades of experience and more than 15 books published on sex addiction: Paul Becker, LPC. You can see a few of his books below, and more on Amazon
