WHAT IS ADDICTION Treatment

Addiction is the inability to quit a substance or behaviour and involves different parts of the brain such as motivation and reward. The term is used to describe a physical, psychological, and or emotional dependency on a particular substance, act, ritual, or behaviour. Addiction usually begins when the person seeks an escape through a substance or action that causes a strong release of chemicals in the brain. This strong release of chemicals affects the brain and develops a dependency on the escape used. Although most common addictions are on a physical substance such as alcohol addiction, marijuana addiction, xanax addiction, drugs addiction, prescription drug addiction and even no substance at all like gambling, gaming, porn, sex, shopping, codependency, social media, etc.

As an addiction recovery center we recognize that the roots are located predominantly in stress and anxiety disorders, and addictive behaviours serve as a temporary relief to these symptoms. Addiction can develop quickly or over a long period, behaviour becomes ‘compulsive’ and as addictive behaviour is repeated. The person loses control and the ability to stop when they had planned or need to. The substance or behaviour begins to control and manipulate a person's life and an addiction rehab is needed. People are often referred to as being an ‘addict’ and having an ‘addiction’ once this pattern of behaviour has taken root. In its most chronic state, the addicts’ main purpose, function, and desire are to ‘feed’ the addiction, this behaviour is often referred to as ‘using’.

This cultivates an endless cycle of unhealthy behaviour. This behaviour triggers an overwhelming sense to ‘use more frequently’ to feel satisfied. This ‘using’ behaviour becomes the only means of pleasure or ‘escape’ for the addict. Eventually, addiction causes an often devastating impact on all areas of life, such as chronic health conditions, even death, poor social engagement, isolation, work problems, family and relationship breakdown, a chaotic lifestyle, debt or financial problems begin to take root. Biologically, addiction disrupts the central nervous system, and ‘high jacks’ the primary reward circuit inherent in all human beings. Addicts will ‘crave’ until they can ‘fix’ the desire with more and more of the substance or activity to feel ‘OK’ or satisfied.
