Conditions and treatments
Behavioural addictions are considered to be non-chemical addictions such as gambling, co-dependency, love and sex addiction. We can become addicted to certain ways of thinking or actions and behaviours that provide a sense of reward, relief, approval or excitement. They can lead to negative consequences in the same way that chemical addictions can such as dysfunctional relationship dynamics, relationships breaking down, suicide, debt, risky behaviour, and loss of self-esteem.
Behavioural addictions are addictive behaviours as with chemical addictions that become obsessive and compulsive in nature and loss of control prevents people from being able to stop or control their behaviour. Negative consequences can occur. As with chemical addictions there may be underlying emotional and psychological issues to address and work through.
Our programme offers a wide range of therapeutic interventions such as group therapy, recovery workshops, written assignments to address and to work through an individual’s behavioural addictions and other underlying presenting issues.
