Life can be a real roller coaster at times. Anyone who has a family, or a job, or friends, knows that things can stress us out. From all kinds of losses, financial and relationship problems, to watching those we love experience pain. When we are under stress we all seek relief. There are times we self-medicate, maybe with a behavior or even a substance that brings us some comfort. AT times, seeking that relief can become compulsive and even addictive. Addiction was once thought of as a moral failing. More recently, it has been considered a disease. Treatment for addiction often considers behaviors. So let’s journey together reflecting on what drives us to self-medicate, healthier skills we can use to cope, and discuss a path to recovery for addictive and compulsive behaviors."
