In basic terms, addiction can be defined as an over reliance to any external source within our environments which provides regulation and soothing to our internal experience. Addiction can come in many shapes and forms. Addiction to drugs and alcohol is both a physical and psychological condition in which an individual has a distinct inability to stop consuming a substance, even when they are experiencing direct consequences such as psychological and physical harm.
Did you know It is scientifically proven that addiction is not a condition of a lack of willpower or moral failing. Addiction is a chronic condition that when left untreated can lead to; physical and mental health complications, disruption and lost relationships/jobs, incapacity in everyday life activities, and even organ failure or death. It is important to know that addiction is not a choice. Addiction is a chronic disease which is characterised by a loss of control over the parts of our brains which are responsible for decision making, rational thinking and behavioural control.
The struggle with addiction also does not discriminate. Anyone of any age, ethnicity, race, or class can find themselves lost and stuck. Being in active addiction can feel extremely isolating and lonely. Sometimes it can feel like there is no way out. However, it is important to know that in reaching out for help you are not alone.
