Addiction is more than a physical dependence on drugs or alcohol. Even after detox, when your body is no longer hooked a person is at high risk for relapse. Certain psychological and social factors can be powerful triggers that lead to relapse:
- Stress, especially sudden life stresses
- Cues in the environment, like visiting a neighbourhood
- Social networks, like spending time with friends who continue to use
These factors can trigger a strong urge to use again. The cause of an addiction is often created by feelings of helplessness, insecurity, feeling insignificant or not feeling enough. An addiction usually arises as a way to cope with underlying feelings that are more painful to handle.
Rapid Transformational Therapy™ addresses these behaviours by dealing with the actual problem which, when resolved, becomes redundant along with the addiction. In as little as 28 days, our Rapid Transformation Program can have you free of addictions to smoking, drinking, binge eating and others.
