The Word “Addiction” Is Often Used To Refer To Any Behaviour That Is Out Of Control In Some Way.

You can be addicted to many things in life; a TV show, shopping or food. The word is also used to explain the experience of withdrawal when a substance or behavior is stopped. Drug addiction is a very complex disease that can affect both our behavior and the way our brains function. Withdrawal from drugs or alcohol is also a very unpleasant experience and sometimes a dangerous medical situation.

One simple way of describing addiction is the presence of the 4 Cs:

  • Craving
  • Control: Loss of control over amount or frequency of use
  • Compulsion to use
  • Consequences: Use despite harmful consequences.

Medical detox alleviates this unpleasant feeling and helps pass the withdrawals in a medically safe condition. Once the detoxification process is completed, the client is ready for the subsequent addiction treatment steps.
