In today’s world, addiction is commonly associated with drugs and alcohol. However, a person can be addicted to virtually anything – food, TV, gambling, etc. Addiction happens when someone becomes too focused on one aspect of their life, and it starts controlling and affecting everything else. A person with an addiction will go to great means to satisfy it, even if this hurts him and the people around him. Addictions can quickly spiral out of control and cause tremendous health concerns, both mental and physical. Therefore, treatment is necessary.
Symptoms: Addictions share many common symptoms, including denial, excess consumption, sacrificing one’s social life in order to satisfy the addiction, taking unnecessary risks, secrecy, and withdrawal symptoms.
