In-depth Expertise in Opioid and Alcohol Addiction Recovery David B. Livingston, MA, LMFT stands out for his in-depth expertise in navigating through the intricate pathways of opioid addiction, alcohol addiction, and substance use recovery.

Specializing in devising personalized psychotherapy sessions, he tackles the psychological and emotional intricacies experienced post-detox. After detoxing, it is important to engage in a deeply personalized therapeutic process, unlocking and navigating the varied factors perpetuating dependency – from situationally based problems, to managing enduring pain, chronic anxiety or depression – or many other factors.

His commitment to unearthing and addressing the fundamental roots of chemical dependency carves out uniquely tailored recovery paths for every individual. David is certified in psychoanalytic psychotherapy by the Los Angeles Institute and Society for Psychoanalytic Studies. He has also been a guest lecturer on the topic of addiction at The University of Southern California. He is a member of CAMFT.

“The relationship between Mental health and Substance abuse is extensive. I feel that very few people get the type of care, understanding, and treatment needed around their unwanted substance use. Once an individual is detoxed from a substance they need an experienced therapist to help them understand the factors causing the compulsivity or feeling stuck – the causes can very greatly and are often minimized or not recognized. such as sleep problems, chronic pain, persistent anxiety or depression, fluctuations in mood, or even an inability to relax given unending demands and responsibilities – all of these conditions and many more can drive unwanted chemical dependency.”
