Addiction patterns are repetitive behaviors or habits that are viewed as harmful and that we want to stop (or loved ones ask us to stop)—yet cannot. The primary goals of treatment are to help persons acknowledge and accept own addiction patterns as problematic, recognize the high costs and consequences, and accept complete responsibility for restoring key relationships harmed by the problem behaviors. Another key goal is the development of honesty and authentic relations, with self and others, as a means of restoring balance and harmony, and increasing understanding and knowledge of self. To do so, the process involves building awareness, practicing presence, self-acceptance and self-love.
