Addiction is the outcome of prolonged use of substances to cope.
Whether you are struggling with recreational drugs or prescribed medication, an unhealthy reliance on alcohol, cigarettes, sugar, food, gambling, shopping, sex or a combination of any of these, addiction as a behaviour is founded in coping strategies.
These coping mechanisms are employed to reduce stress, however, when the stressors in life do not deplete, the substance or behaviour becomes a crutch as the person’s physiological and psychological systems adapt and change.
The cause of addiction is complex and must be investigated thoroughly for effective treatment. At Noosa Confidential we do not assume. We rely on cutting edge medical diagnosis combined with the latest integrative research and psychological testing to ensure we understand you.
Causes of addiction range from trauma and lifestyle factors to genetic predispositions and undiagnosed medical conditions and can include:
Physical and Mental Stress
Vitamin and mineral deficiency
Inability to effectively communicate
Lifestyle factors including living environment, work place and exercise
