Addiction & Life-Controlling Problems

What is addiction? Addiction is a progressive loss of control over the use of a substance or behavior. The user becomes obsessed with the substance or behavior despite adverse consequences. They deny the existence of a problem if confronted. Addiction does not just affect the individual person. It is also damaging to families, relationships, careers, and many other aspects of life.

There are many other problems, besides drugs and alcohol, that have the potential to do as much damage as substance abuse. In fact, substance abuse is often symptomatic of much deeper life-controlling problems. People struggling with these issues can also benefit from an addiction recovery program.

Lifestyle addictions cover a wide array of issues that affect many people. Poor self-image, violence and anger issues, eating disorders, and sexual addiction are some common examples of lifestyle addictions. Our Christ-centered approach offers the time and space for those who are struggling to experience God’s love and grace.
