Addiction Counselling in Essex & London

Why Choose Addiction Therapy?

Addictions can develop from something totally innocent such as experimentation, recreational and sporadic drug use but can also develop as a person does their best to cover up previous trauma

There’s a big difference however between an addiction and a habit. An addiction is defined as a habit that’s become out of control however an addiction will typically have a very bad effect on the users life.

What truly separates addiction from habit however is the psychological link. People who exercise a certain habit do so for fun or relaxation etc and can stop at any time.

An addiction however will see an overwhelming need and desire, as well as usually, an inability to stop without correct addiction treatment and help. To cut it short, a habit can be stopped but an addiction cannot.

Different Types Of Addictions

There are several different types of addictions, these include:

Gambling Addiction

While gambling may be a fun activity for some, for others it can become a serious problem where compulsion sees a sufferer gambling money they don’t have, leading them and others around them into financial crisis, along with poor health and well-being.

Sex Addiction

A sex addiction can be categorised by compulsive thoughts and acts surrounding sexual activity. For most people, sexual behaviours can be placed within every day life however others will find uncontrollable urges lead them to act on sexual impulses regardless of where they are, once again leading to financial problems and sometimes professional/legal problems.

Alcohol Abuse & Drug Addiction

Alcohol and drugs are used recreationally by a certain portion of society however, this can lead to an addiction as tolerance levels creep up and the body develops a dependence. Repeated and compulsive use of alcohol and drugs will lead to financial and health problems.

Internet Addiction

Internet addiction can be described as an impulsive need to use the internet. People with internet addictions can develop unhealthy emotional attachments to online friends, communities and platforms. This can affect a person’s mental well-being as well as their physical well-being as they begin to put the internet before their own health.
