When grappling with addiction, it seizes control over your entire world and impacts the people around you. There are two main categories of addiction:
1. Substance addiction, which includes alcohol and drugs.
2. Behavioral addiction, encompassing issues like gambling, excessive video gaming, overeating, work obsession, and compulsive sexual behaviour.
Addiction typically arises when we exhaust our internal coping mechanisms, prompting us to seek external means of escape. If you’re here because you’ve attempted to overcome this challenge on your own, know that talk therapy can be a valuable resource. It can assist you in several ways:
1. Providing a step back from the problem, helping you develop coping strategies.
2. Identifying and addressing the root causes that contributed to the addiction.
3. Assisting you in regaining control over your life and your most cherished priorities.
Throughout your treatment, you will be treated with dignity, confidentiality, and respect, while receiving evidence-based counseling. Your therapist will collaborate with you to help you achieve your goals and live a fulfilling life.
