Behavioral Addiction Information
Learn How to Overcome Addictive Behaviors Through Treatment
Addiction doesn't always involve abusing a substance like drugs or alcohol. Sometimes our addictions are rooted in the compulsion to repeat a behavior, regardless of the negative consequences it can have on our lives. Behaviors that give us a sense of reward, exhilaration, or relief can create the same addictive pathways in our brains and bodies that substance addiction does.
Behavioral addictions can take over your life—interfering with your relationships with family and friends, disrupting your professional life, and hijacking your interest and enjoyment in the things that used to matter the most. From sex addiction to compulsive gambling to disordered eating, the addiction is real. The problem is real. And the hope for recovery is real.
Take a few minutes right now to learn more about the behavioral addiction that is affecting your life, or the life of someone you care about. A future without compulsion starts as soon as you choose to ask for help.
