Addiction is not having control over doing, taking or using something to the extent that it
may be harmful to you. Addiction is usually associated with alcohol and drugs. However,
people can become addicted to many things including behavioural addictions, for
example internet or shopping addictions.
What is Addiction?
“Varying definitions typically include a need for the individual to avoid intolerable reality with an
ongoing, compulsive and life damaging relationship with a mood altering substance or behaviour” -
from the Addiction Counsellors of Ireland.
Those who are close to a person suffering with addiction may also
need support. Our addiction counsellors can help anyone affected by
addiction, directly or indirectly.
Types of Addiction
There are different types of anxiety, each with its own cause and features.
