Addiction

Addiction to anything, whether to street drugs, prescription drugs, alcohol, gambling, shopping, pornography or any other similar addiction, such as hoarding or toxic relationships, is a terrible thing. Being addicted to something makes an individual feel as if they are a slave to whatever they are addicted to. Extreme addiction can lead a person to behave in certain ways that are illegal or in some other manner unhealthy or injurious. Addiction is usually a result of some other condition, such as depression, loss, or anxiety. As a psychologist with more than thirty five years of clinical experience assisting people with various addictions, I may be able to assist you in determining what the real, underlying issues are and help you start taking appropriate steps to get better.
