Addiction Counseling, Therapy in Bensalem, PA—Bucks Counselors and Therapists

Addiction is a mental illness, characterized by the inability to stop using the desired substance if or when an individual wants to. In other words, these people can’t control their urge to drink, use, gamble, shop—depending on the substance or behavior. They long for fulfillment, of which they can only obtain from that substance or behavior. The comfort, satisfaction, and relief it brings them is impossible to pass up.

“Recovery is all about using our power to change our beliefs that are based on faulty data.”

–Kevin McCormick

What Is Addiction? Am I Addicted?

Addiction is dependence on a particular substance, thing, or activity. Be it alcohol, tobacco, fast food, gambling, shopping, the internet. Whatever the addiction is rooted in, it can cause physical, emotional, and/or behavioral changes. Keep an eye out for the following:

  1. Physical effects:Physical effects include weight loss, malnourishment, pale skin, bad body odor, and hyperactivity.
  2. Emotional effects:Addiction can lead to irritability, blame, denial, and a loss of interest in one’s favorite activities.
  3. Behavioral effects:It can also affect one’s behavior and cause one to isolate him or herself, lie to loved ones, spend a significant amount of money, and fail at work or school

Are you experiencing any of these effects as a result of substance use or a particular activity? If so, consider working with a therapist or counselor at Thriveworks. They can assess your symptoms and come up with a plan for helping you manage your addiction. Most importantly, they can lead you on a path toward becoming a happier, healthier, and more successful you.

How Does Addiction Counseling Work?

The signs are there. The beginning of your therapy journey will involve talking about your addiction, including the symptoms and effects that you are experiencing. In addition to the effects mentioned above, those with an addiction often…

  • Plan to change their problematic behaviors, but fail to do so on their own
  • Have failed responsibilities such as at work, at school, or at home
  • Struggle in their personal and social lives

The first step in getting help is recognizing and admitting that you need help. Once you do that, you can actually seek treatment, and begin discussing your present and what you envision for your future with your counselor. If you’re feeling unsure about this whole addiction counseling thing, know that counseling is proven to help those with addiction.

  • Stress
