Addiction Therapy Continued……

To some it might seem strange to group issues such as gambling or sex addiction into the same category as issues such as alcohol or drug addiction. However, addiction experts are moving away from seeing multiple addictions based on substance and/or activity, rather suggesting that there is one addiction that is associated with multiple expressions, multiple ways of presenting in individuals. Therefore, we can develop addictions to almost any activity that shifts a person’s subjective experience in a desirable direction, making them feel good or feel better than without the activity. This new way of looking at addiction is important as it tells us that its vital to see people, individuals, a person and not an addiction. Your addicition is not who you are, it’s how you have learnt to sooth any pain and discomfort in your life.

Addiction is more than just a physical dependence, it’s an inability to stop doing an activity despite negative consequence from that activity or returning (relapsing) to this activity after stopping despite the desire not to. Therapy can help you to uncover the cause of an addiction and overcome the desires and cravings to return using evidence based researched techniques and psychological processes designed to give you the best chance to bring about change and make it permanent.

Common behaviours and signs of a possible addiction include: – withdrawing from social activities or neglecting relationships – attempting to hide or lie about the habit – exhibiting frequent mood swings – missing work, school, or social events – losing interest in activities or hobbies they previously enjoyed
