A dependency on substances or activities despite being aware of or having experienced negative consequences is called addiction. Unknown to many, addiction is a disease – just as cancer is a disease; it is not simply a weakness. Addicts believe that they can control their compulsions, but in fact, their brains’ have been rewired and they are no longer in control of their nagging impulses.
It is important to know that people from all backgrounds at any age can become addicted to a number of substances or activities; and that, essentially, addiction is a disease that affects an entire family – not just the person struggling with it.
There is no need to walk the path alone, I can help you work through supporting an addict and/ or an addiction to alcohol, drugs, over the counter pharmaceuticals, nicotine, food, gambling, shopping, work and sex.
