Help with addiction

Addictions

Addiction can be used in many contexts to describe an obsession, compulsion, or excessive physical or psychological dependence. There are several types of addictions such as drugs, alcohol, sex, pornography, food, nicotine, shopping, internet and gambling.

Do you find yourself continuously engaging in behaviours that are causing you to undergo negative effects or consequences? Have you attempted to stop certain patterns and behaviours? Is there an uncontrollable urge or desire to continue even though your friends and family have recommended you to stop?

If you answered yes to ANY of these, then you could have the problem of addiction on your hands.

Addiction is a psychological and often physiological process where we become dependent on a substance or behaviour. Addiction is not only to a substance, but has been extended, to include mood-altering behaviours or activities. It is a progressive syndrome, which means that it increases in severity over time unless it is treated. If it is untreated these addictions can take over your life.

At therapy121 we will guide you every step of the way. We will explore your behaviours, how it was maintained, and most importantly, how it can be changed. Our successful counselling for addiction will provide you with ongoing support, coping skills and resources, which are all significant for recovery. Allow us to have you in control of your life again.
