Addiction is a condition in which a person engages in use of a substance or in a behavior for which the rewarding effects provide a compelling incentive to repeatedly pursue the behavior despite detrimental consequences.
Addiction comes in different forms such as:
- Drug Addiction
- Unhealthy Eating Habits (compulsive overeating, anorexia and/or bulimia)
- Sexual Addictions
Addiction is defined as a compulsive need for and use of a habit-forming substance characterized by tolerance and well-defined physiological symptoms from withdrawal; tenacious compulsive use of a substance known by the user to be destructive. Addiction is highly common in the US. Studies reveal that an astounding 23.5 million Americans are addiction to alcohol or drugs. That’s approximately 1 out of every 10 Americans over 12 years of age.
Some identifiers of addiction could be:
- They remove people from their actual feelings to provide a sense of escape.
- They control people and transcends all logic or reasoning.
- They always involve pleasure.
- They include psychological dependence.
- They are destructive and unhealthy.
“Many pursue it into the gates of insanity or death”
– Alcoholics Anonymous, 2001

They are taught methods that help them overcome the struggles of impulse control, obsessional and compulsive disorders. Our counselors provide help with individuals to identify the behavioral patterns and problems related to the addiction and recover from the disorder effects. Since the addiction state is often perplexed it takes a competent counselor to work with individuals suffering from addiction and our counselors are readily prepared. We offer genuine, empathetic, modeled behavior, educated and respectful addiction counselors.
