Types of Addiction

Substance Addiction

When a person is struggling with substance addiction, he experiences an overwhelming dependence or craving for a specific drug.

Substance addiction spans from alcohol reliance to opiate misuse, all driven by the urge to consume a particular substance. It is a neuropsychiatric disorder marked by a persistent craving to use the drug despite adverse effects.

Non-Substance Addiction

Also referred as behavioural addiction, it encompasses pathological gambling, sexual addiction, food addiction, internet addiction, and mobile phone addiction. This form of addiction entails engaging in self-defeating or harmful behaviours that dominate a person’s thoughts and actions in daily life.

Types of therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

CBT fosters patient awareness of thought and action impact through mindfulness training. It teaches patients to observe and positively adjust thought quality. CBT highlights drug abuse and sobriety behaviours, pinpointing triggers and cravings for relapse while developing coping strategies. Traditionally used for alcohol, marijuana, cocaine, and methamphetamine addictions, CBT addresses patterns and rituals ingrained in patients’ identities and behaviors.

Motivational Interviewing (MI)

Motivational interviewing is a counselling approach aimed at inspiring clients to embrace sobriety by tapping into their intrinsic motivations and values. Unlike coercive methods, MI empowers clients to discover their own drive for recovery. Through collaborative alliance, clients are empowered to make autonomous choices, fostering internal changes for sustained recovery. By reflecting clients’ words and messages, MI subtly reinforces self-awareness & understanding of motivations, aiding in acknowledging personal identity and behavioural patterns.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

DBT for addiction aids individuals in combating self-destructive behaviours, such as addiction, by instilling mindfulness, stress coping mechanisms, emotion regulation, and enhanced interpersonal skills.
