For those who struggle with process addictions, “leisure” activities can become destructive; proving detrimental to the addict’s lifestyle, personal health, and overall quality of life.
What Is A Process Addiction?
A process addiction is any compulsive behavior that includes an action that, on its own, is not physically addictive; such as eating or internet usage. The lack of a physical addiction distinguishes this condition from a substance abuse addiction, however, they can still prove quite harmful and should be treated professionally.
The number of process addiction is vast, and can include any activity that has become destructive and overpowering in an individual’s life. Many process addictions are recognized psychological and medical conditions within the mental health community, and should be treated as such. Unfortunately, many people – while having a basic understanding of the dangers of drug and alcohol abuse – have yet to truly appreciate the seriousness of these conditions.
