When activities or substances negatively impact a person's health,
relationships, finances or career, and they are unable to stop, they may be
experiencing an addiction.
The first step to recovery is determining whether you are actually dealing with an addiction and admitting that you need help. The path to recovery can include support groups, addiction treatment centers and individual therapy. Counseling with an experienced therapist is a great first step and provides a personal, targeted approach to healing.
