Most of us are familiar with addictions involving substances such as alcohol or drugs. There are many other manifestations of “addictive behavior” such as how one uses the Internet, video games, eating, shopping, gambling and pornography. The common denominator in all addictive behaviors is that individuals engage in them compulsively to avoid feeling whatever they don’t want to feel. Addiction therapy from Stoa Life can help.
At Stoa Life, we address the symptoms of your addiction, such as anxiety, depression, and stress, and we treat these symptoms with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), also referred to as “problem focused” therapy. CBT therapies are the most researched and evidence-based therapies in the world. Treatment with CBT is considered to be the gold standard for all underlying symptoms that clients are trying to manage through their addiction.
We also work in partnership with any recovery program you’re participating in. At Stoa Life, we believe there’s more than one path to successful recovery, and quality psychotherapy is a valuable component.
