Process Addiction Treatment in Melbourne
Process Addiction Treatment in Melbourne – Why Victorian Residents choose The Cabin Melbourne for effective, affordable process addiction treatment
Are you addicted to food, sex, gambling or the internet? When we talk about addiction, what usually comes to mind are addictions to substances, such as alcohol or drugs. But as it turns out, people can become addicted to certain behaviours, or processes, as well. We call these process addictions, the consequences of which can be far reaching and devastating for those who suffer from them, as well as their loved ones.
These process addictions, while not as often talked about, are more prevalent than many people realise. The most commonly known is gambling addiction, and Australians are no strangers to gambling. In fact, Australia has the highest per capita gambling losses of any country in the world.
Process addictions also include addictions to sex and food. While it may seem counterintuitive to think that someone could become addicted to one of the basic behaviours necessary for survival, when thoughts become consumed by these behaviours, and actions become largely driven by them, it is a very likely sign of addiction. With more and more Australians seeking treatment for these addictions, it is safe to say that they are on the rise.
The digital age has given way to new forms of process addictions including internet, video game, pornography and smart phone addiction – all of which are of growing concerns in Australia. As behaviour surrounding these technologies becomes more and more compulsive, the risk of succumbing to addiction becomes greater.
Compared to traditional substance addictions, process addictions are not as easy to identify in oneself or others. However, although they can be more difficult to spot, they can be just as disruptive to the lives of those who suffer from them. Process addictions are real addictions that cause chemical changes in the brain and are very tough to overcome without professional treatment. If you suspect that you or someone you care about is suffering from a process addiction contact The Cabin Melbourne today. We offer process addiction assessments that are both comprehensive and confidential. Let us help you find your path to recovery.
