Process Addiction: How We Can Help
Researchers speak of two types of addictions: substance addictions (e.g. alcoholism, drug abuse, and smoking) and process addictions, such as those related to gambling, spending, shopping, eating and sexual activity. We understand that many of our clients with alcohol and/or drug problems also have co-occurring process addictions. Any addiction by definition causes significant problems and consequences in your life, so we address each addiction during the course of treatment.
Here are some of the process addictions for which we work with recognized specialists to develop personalized treatment plans:
- Compulsive overeating
- Internet and video gaming
- Sexual acting out
- And other high risk behavior that induce negative consequences
