Behavioral Addiction

When people think about addiction, many don’t consider compulsive behavior. This type of addiction can be just as dangerous as substance abuse. Types of behavioral addiction include but are not limited to: gambling, engaging in sexual activity, watching pornography, and video gaming.

When You Ignore Symptoms

If you suffer from substance abuse or behavioral addiction, please seek professional help. Ignoring your diagnosis can lead to serious health problems and behavioral issues. It’s never too late to choose recovery.

Eating Disorders

Research suggests that there are links between eating disorders and addictive conditions, such as drug addiction and alcoholism. Both types of addictions create an addictive cycle stimulating your brain’s reward center with the substance or behavior in question. You get a false and temporary sense of happiness or relief.

Gambling Addiction

Gambling addiction, also referred to as compulsive gambling or gambling disorder, is a serious condition recognized widely by psychologists. It’s surprisingly common, especially among younger and middle aged men.

Sex and Porn Addiction

The medical community is still not sure how to look at sex addiction. But with regard to one thing, there’s a general consensus: it’s a serious and difficult problem for those who suffer from it.

Video/Computer Game Addiction & Treatment

Video games haven’t been around nearly as long as other addictive substances, and the study of this behavioral addiction is still in its infancy. But, as children and even adults devote more and more of their time to video games, video game addiction is expected to skyrocket.

Shopping Addiction

Everybody shops. Tireless advertising creates a consumerist culture leading you to believe you have to have that one thing everyone else has already bought – and you have to have it now. This normalizes unnecessary spending, making compulsive buying – shopping addiction – the most socially acceptable addiction out there. The cause of this kind of dependence goes deeper than wanting to have all the latest merchandise, though. It can negatively impact your life in more ways than one – but there is hope.
