No matter the type of addiction you may suffer from, all addictions are serious and have a stigma attached to them. Let the stigma fall by the wayside. Your life is too important to care about someone else's opinion. You are not your addiction. Types Of Addiction There are two basic types of addiction. There is substance abuse or alcohol addiction which is a chemical addiction. Conversely, there are behavioral addictions. There are treatment centers for the two types of addiction. Find treatment as soon as you feel you're losing control. Time is of the essence. There is much less harm to your life and body with the early treatment of addiction. Addiction is a compulsion to use a substance or alcohol or to engage in behavior If you are addicted to something you don't have control over your use. \u00a0Though you know the substance or the behavior can be harmful, you continue to engage. Your brain has developed an unhealthy craving for the feeling that you get when you think about the behavior or substance. When you engage in the activity, euphoria or another desired chemical reaction is experienced. Behavioral Addictions Behavioral addictions include sexual behavior, love addiction, shopping, gambling, gaming, social media, and others. These behaviors are normal. However, an addiction develops when you become compulsive about the time spent or some other detrimental factor has been combined with the behavior. Other facets of your life suffer when an addiction is present. The compulsive aspect turns normal behavior into an abnormal addiction. Substance\/Alcohol Addictions Substance abuse and alcohol abuse is the result of a compulsive drive to indulge. This type of addiction includes cocaine, heroin, meth, benzodiazepines, opioids, opiates, designer drugs, crank, etc.\u00a0 Much like a behavioral addiction, substance addiction can start innocently enough. You may have thought you were experimenting with a substance and the experimentation turned into something else. Don't get lost in blaming yourself or blaming others. Dealing with the situation as it is will bring the best outcome. Addictions have chemical reactions in your brain. That's why many addictions are referred to as a disease. Something is off balance. We want to help you get back on track Learning the types of addiction as part of treatment is stressed at Lucida Treatment Center. Learning about the types of addiction will give you insight as to how you can conquer the addiction. Another useful tool is listening to how others have grappled with the same substance that you are abusing. This will give you insight into how you can recover.
