We define an addiction or an addictive behavior broadly and without judgement; it’s anytime something is out of balance in your life.
Addictions are not limited to substances, but can include addictions to behaviors (internet usage, gambling, shopping, food restricting or bingeing) or to people (sexual addictions, compulsive helping, codependency with an addict).
Only you can make this determination, but we can help answer your questions about what is “too much.”
Sometimes it’s hard to see the totality of the situation when you’re smack dab in the middle of it. Maybe you don’t think there’s an issue but those around you have started making comments about your behavior. Maybe they’ve started issuing ultimatums. Or they’ve begun to retreat from your life, no longer inviting you out as often or turning down your invitations.
You may have decided that it’s better to avoid the relationship, friend, job and boss, household, bills, finances or debts, school work, legal problems, or other responsibilities and obligations…but everything is still there waiting for you in the end.
When you’re struggling with an addiction, it is hard to see the way forward or to imagine a better life. But we see the way and can map it out in manageable steps with you.
We can help you start to sort out what may seem overwhelming, unmanageable, and unrepairable. There’s another possible future where you feel relief and live a life free from these burdens.
There’s a way out. There’s a path to healing.
