Are you or a loved one in need of a behavioural rehab? Not many understand that compulsive destructive behaviours can be a symptom of an addiction.

Behavioural problems and addiction can be just as destructive and damaging to the individual and their family as alcohol and drugs.

Common examples of behavioural addictions include:

  • Gambling addiction
  • Sex addiction
  • Gaming addiction
  • Eating disorders
  • Love addiction
  • Codependency
  • Pornography addiction
  • Shopping and spending addiction

All behavioural addictions can carry severe consequences including financial debt, loss of jobs, destroyed relationships, physical and mental illness, severe anxiety, depression and even suicidal ideation.

Behavioural addictions require professional treatment. Behavioural rehab provides the best in tailored behavioural therapies that can not be accessed to the same degree of speciality or intensity on the NHS

What is a Behavioural Addiction?

A behavioural addiction is where an individual becomes addicted to a particular behaviour/activity to the point where it becomes detrimental to their mental, physical, social and spiritual health.

The individual has no control to resist these behaviours and they are carried out compulsively, even when there is a desire to stop and negative consequences are being accumulated

The brain will receive pleasurable rewards as a result of the behaviour but will become tolerant over time. The individual is then compelled to take bigger risks with their behaviour in order to satisfy the brain, which will have rewired itself to compulsively feed the addiction.
