Addiction - Introduction

Counsellors and therapists in New Zealand who can support you when you suffer from addiction.

 

Addiction is a difficulty in controlling certain repetitive behaviours to the extent that they have harmful consequences. This repetitive behaviour is a result of powerful compulsions to use and do certain things excessively, often out of a need to escape from upsetting emotions/situations. 


It can trigger a self-perpetuating process, which can cause pain and suffering not only for those addicted, but also for their friends and family. 

 

Generally an addiction is defined as a habit that has become out of control to the extent that the sufferer is dependent on it for coping with daily life. 

 

 

Addiction treatment

There are several kinds of addiction, including:

 

  • Alcohol and drug abuse
  • Food addiction
  • Gaming addiction
  • Gambling problem

 

  • Internet addiction
  • Smoking
  • Social media addiction

 

  • Substance abuse
  • Workaholic
  • Sex/porn addiction

 

 

Addiction therapy & counselling

Do you suffer from addiction and would you like to get some help how to deal with this? Therapy and counselling can help.
