What are\u00a0"Process Addictions"?\r\nStruggling with a different kind of addiction? Feel like there is no hope? Addiction is typically related to the abuse of alcohol or drugs, but we at Beaches Recovery know there are other addictions that have just as many long-term negative effects on the lives of their abusers. These can include: Gambling, Exercise, Work, Sex, Video games, Shopping, and more. We define these as \u201cProcess Addictions\u201d. In moderation, these activities are not defined as addictions, however some users find themselves in constant need of more. When participation in these activities defies all rationale, consequences, and responsible behavior, they quickly turn from leisure to abuse and addiction.\r\n\r\nPeople often have difficulty accepting their behaviors as process addictions and will not get the appropriate help they need. They may not feel that process addictions are legitimate\u00a0addictions that require professional addiction treatment. The truth is though, that process addictions are real and share a lot of things with substance abuse addiction.\r\n\r\nMost think that they should be able to stop destructive and compulsive behaviors without help. Unfortunately, process addictions are debilitating and as challenging\u00a0to overcome as substance abuse addiction.\r\nAddiction Treatment for Process Addictions\r\n \r\n\r\nAt Beaches Recovery\u2019s addiction treatment center, we work diligently to discover why these addictions occur, and what pain, issue, or emotional need the activity is masking. Through individual and group therapy and a comprehensive treatment plan, our skilled staff delicately works with patients to achieve regulation of these behaviors, and healthy alternatives to addictive urges. Our 90-day rehab programs promote goal setting, and discharge plans that will help prevent relapse once you are back at home.\r\n\r\nAddiction is serious, no matter what. Process addictions are just as serious as substance addictions, and at Beaches Recovery\u2019s comprehensive rehabilitation center, we treat them as such. Abstaining from these activities and discovering their triggers will help patients to regain control of their actions and learn how to make responsible decisions that no longer negatively affect their lives and families.
