Addictions come in number of guises, but can take a serious toll on physical and psychological health. Symptoms of addictions may include depression, panic attacks, sleep disturbance, obsessive-compulsive traits, deteriorating relationships and poor work performance.
Many people with addictions consider their behaviour to be a craving, dependence or bad habit. If your day to day functioning or health is affected, or if the behaviour takes up a large amount of time or money, then you may benefit from addiction counselling and psychotherapy.
What is Addiction Counselling, Psychotherapy & Psychiatry?
Addiction counsellors can help you identify whether you have an addiction and may suggest a course of counselling sessions to help overcome your addiction. If serious, you may also need to meet with a consultant psychiatrist to diagnose, monitor and treat any mental health issues. Addiction psychiatrists may also be able to refer you to a rehabilitation centre if a residential stay is indicated.
