Addiction is a broad based term. When I use it, I include alcohol, drugs, gambling, sex, food, and the internet. These addictions are all characterized by obsessions about use, compulsive acting out, and downward progression in the individuals's life. Treatment begins with the person seeing that they have a problem, which is not always easy. The next step is developing a plan to help the person stop the addiction. Much care has to be taken to address the issues of staying stopped. These include triggers and lifestyle changes. The addict also has to develop or re-engage with support systems. I help someone with all of these steps.
