All recovery groups, therapy & treatment services are provided by Stephanie Higdon, LCSW, ICAADC. Stephanie is a widely respected addictions counselor and relapse prevention educator among many recovering addicts and their families who live and work in Athens, GA and Madison County. As the owner of Minding You and the driving force behind all services offered, this therapy area is where her passion lies and her clinical expertise hits home.
However, to Stephanie, there is very little she believes in more. Most clinicians will agree that "addiction" is often influenced by and / or affects other co-occurring mental health impairments (such as depression, anxiety, stress, trauma, PTSD, attachment and relationship issues, etc.) and it touches every part of life. But what many clinicians often ignore is taking a multi-systemic and holistic approach to not just healing the person, but healing their life. Stephanie's philosophy is that recovery and therapy should touch on the many faces and places of a person's life .
The differences between "addiction" and "dependency" are rarely delineated. However, when it comes to healing the soul, the spirit, and improving overall well being, both issues must be considered.
While Stephanie is MAT friendly to support healing the body's dependency on substances, she therapeutically works to help heal you from the inside out -- to get to the root causes of the the "addiction" and manage the forces which negatively affected almost every relationship and situation encountered by the addict. In just one session with Stephanie, you will feel connected, supported, and you will agree, she just "gets it". Her letters indicate a skilled area of expertise, but her unbiased and non-judgmental professional personality represent a passion for educating, supporting and helping to enhance the lives of those she cares about. She will help you face challenges, overcome barriers to growth, and regain control of life. Stephanie is familiar with the many faces and facets of addiction and substance dependency, the struggles that are very real yet often dismissed, and is not a stranger to the loss of identity and life that makes healing and thriving seem impossible. However, as you can come to find, healing and thriving are anything but impossible.
