What are your thoughts on existentialist therapy, particularly in its role in substance use counseling?

One of the foundations of existential therapy suggests that the individual (the client) is the creator of his or her own problems, and therefore holds the power to solve those problems. Many view this theory of counseling as being somewhat ‘dark’, harsh on the client, and blaming the client for his or her problems. Others equate the existentialist techniques as being a foundation of “tough love” between therapist and client.

What are your thoughts on existentialist therapy, particularly in its role in substance use counseling? Do you believe these techniques to be appropriate for substance-using clients? Why or why not?
