Addiction and Recovery
ABOUT ADDICTION AND RECOVERY THERAPY
Addiction and substance abuse can be ways to avoid facing the painful aspects of life, whether fears about oneself, past wounds, or present difficulties. When an individual is addicted to something, not having it leads to having withdrawal symptoms. This unpleasant feeling makes it difficult to keep away from what you desire, leading the addiction to become more severe.
The constant urge to manage addiction can be severely harmful when it pertains to your health, work performance, and relationships. Addiction can eventually have extreme psychological and physical effects, which can be difficult to overcome on your own. Often addiction can be brought upon by genetic or environmental based factors. Besides continuous effects, some individuals may not even know they are addicted. Regardless how addiction starts, there is always a way to end it and make a positive change to your life.
