Addiction simply defined is the continued use despite negative consequences
I believe that trauma is underneath addiction, and it is vital to address it in order to break free from its grip.
On the surface some symptoms and behaviors include:
- Needing more to get the same effect (tolerance)
- Experiencing withdrawal symptoms
- Preoccupation with the substance/behavior
- Failed attempts to quit
If you can relate to any of the above symptoms or behaviors, it may be time to consider seeking professional help.
As a therapist with extensive experience in the field of addiction and recovery, I can help you address the how and why of addiction.
There are many paths to successful recovery. Together we can create a plan to ensure you are empowered to make the life changes you want to make.
