Many people coming to treatment face more than one addiction at the same time. Addictions not only coexist, addictions interact, reinforce and fuse with one another. Patrick Carnes refers to this process as "Addiction Interaction Disorder". If other addictions are not addressed, patients may be at a higher risk for relapse.
Our staff is experienced in working with sex addiction, love addiction, shopping, gambling, food addiction, gaming addiction, work and technology addiction. As part of addiction interaction, we watch for replacement addictions, such as replacing alcoholism with food.
Our goal is to help the patient heal from all addictions and create a healthy, well-balanced life free from addictive substances and addictive behaviors.
