Addiction: What It Is and How We Can Help

Addiction, Therapy and Counseling, Support and Care

Let’s dive into the complex world of addiction, a topic that’s key to understanding and finding your path to healing.

What Is Addiction?

Addiction is when someone can’t stop doing something, even if it’s hurting them or others. It’s like being trapped in a loop, doing something over and over, even when you know it’s not good for you.

Understanding the Two Parts

There are two main parts to addiction:

Physical Part: Your body gets used to something, like a medicine or a substance (like alcohol or drugs). Your body thinks it needs it to feel okay. When you try to stop, your body might feel sick or uncomfortable. That’s called withdrawal.

Mental Part: This is about how your brain works. It tricks you into thinking you really, really need that thing, even if you don’t. It can be tough to control.

Common Addictions

People can get addicted to different things, like substances (alcohol, drugs, or certain medicines) or activities (like gambling, video games, or shopping).
