Addiction and Life-controlling Issues
What is addiction? Addiction is a progressive loss of control due to the use of a substance or behavior. The user becomes obsessed with the substance or behavior despite adverse consequences. They often deny the existence of a problem if confronted.
There are 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, such as lifestyle addictions. Lifestyle addictions cover a wide array of issues that affect many people such as poor self-image, violence and anger issues, eating disorders, and sexual addiction. People struggling with these issues can also benefit from an addiction recovery program.
Our Christ-centered approach offers the time and space for those who are struggling to experience God’s love and grace.
