Several years ago, a high school athlete who was using steroids came to see me for counseling. I treated him in much the same way that I treat other addictions. After he stopped using the steroids, he was very open to strategies and techniques that can help athletes to learn how to use their minds to control their bodies. I taught him many of the “zone techniques” featured on my site www.stayinthezone.com and on the zone program http://www.stayinthezone.com/get_stay.htm
Steroid use is a serious problem among young athletes and I will be writing about this more in the future.
