People get addicted inadvertently and accidently. They do not set out to make their lives more difficult. It often takes time before they are addicted and even more time before they acknowledge to themselves that they are addicted. They may get addicted to a chemical, for example, alcohol or, more recently, prescription medications, or an activity, for example, internet porn or gambling, or both. In addition, clients with addictions often grapple with other emotional and behavioral issues. They may suffer from low grade depression (dysthymia) and social anxiety. Or they may have an underlying bi-polar disorder. Finally, they frequently have interpersonal issues. Fortunately, Institute therapists can help clients learn a variety of evidence-based techniques to better manage such multiple, interacting problems.
