Need more help deciding?

Addictions are a real problem and it can include many things such as alcohol, drugs, medications, tobacco, caffeine, gambling, sex, food, exercise, shopping, or even the internet. Addictions can happen to anyone. However, it often destroys families, relationships, and has the potential to ruin your future and your life.

What is an Addiction?

No one starts out thinking they will be addicted to something. It often starts out innocently and then develops into a bad habit, which ultimately becomes destructive. Dependency is the key word and when you feel that you have lost control or have no control over it, it is often the sign that it may be an addiction. Addictions have a way of consuming you until you have lost a part of your freedom as the disease steals and controls a part of your brain, almost as if like a bad virus in a computer. Addictions produce changes in your thinking, behavior, and in your body physiologically.

It literally changes your brain circuits. Addictions produce intense activation of the reward system in your brain pathways and produces pleasure, often referred to as the “high.” Many things can become addictive, although not all addictions are considered a mental health disorder.

How Do I Know If I Have an Addiction?

You may find yourself using substances or engaging in addictive behaviors more frequently, using larger amounts, and despite wanting to quit; you find yourself unsuccessful. You may spend more time and energy in activities trying to get the substances or engaging in the behavior and then more time recovering from its effects. You may also experience withdrawal symptoms from certain substances and find yourself using more, just to avoid them. You may start to lie to conceal your addiction from others or steal to finance your addiction. You may also start to feel distressed, anxious, depressed, and more irritable. You may feel like you are losing control. Sometimes you may feel that you still have control, but others may notice and feel that you don’t. You may feel embarrassed, angry, or even deny the existence of a problem.

I am pleased to have someone I can tell how I am feeling that I would not express to family or friends. The medication helps me to get a better night sleep and helps me feel better the following days and to cope throughout the days that follow.

I'm very fortunate to have gotten such a great Therapist Lauren Lowe. She is a very good listener and helps me with my anxiety. Lauren gives me ideas how to manage the anxiety. I see her every Wednesday afternoon and go over what has happened for the week to help me cope with things I have problems with. I look forward to see her and all the help she has given me. I rate her very highly as a Therapist.

I took my preteen child there, who did not want to go at all and after 1 session my child was willing to go back, reporting the counselor was so nice! I instantly saw a change in my child, we will continue to attend throughout the summer to continue to make progress. When we arrived, I instantly felt comfortable in this calm environment. I recommend this office to anyone.
