Mental Health Blog by Ryan S.

Living life with a mental illness, however I get out of bed every morning and fight; I may not win every day, but I fight. I love helping others who battle mental illness along with family and friends who struggle to comprehend mental illness. I enjoy speaking to one or thousands of people using my own unique speaking method that provides an easy to understand look at mental health along with a bit of fun.

Don't Hesitate To Get Addiction Treatment

In our day and age, it seems like you do not have to look far or long to find people that are struggling with addictions of all kinds. Sometimes you have to look no further than to yourself to find a tough addiction. When we hear the word, addiction, we immediately think of alcohol or substance abuse don't we? But let me assure you, there is a far wider range of things to be addicted to, and getting addiction treatment can be great no matter what a person is addicted to.

As a therapist, I see a variety of patients everyday who are dealing with a variety of addictions. I have patients addicted to food, to exercise, to video games, to work, to alcohol and of course to drugs or nicotine. Regardless of the addiction, I always suggest that my client makes time for intentional addiction treatment. Addiction treatment can look a variety of different ways.

The most important thing for people dealing with an addiction to anything is to realize and admit that they are addicted. It is quite hard to convince a person that they need help if they themselves do not even believe that there is a legitimate problem. One of my first goals as a therapist is to get my clients to recognize the truth that they have a problem and that it is big enough that it needs to be dealt with.

If you know that you are struggling with an addiction to almost anything, than you should seriously consider getting addiction treatment. If you are not sure where to begin, then make an appointment to talk with your doctor or with a counselor. Regardless of what type of addiction you are struggling with, a doctor or counselor will help to move you in the right direction. Perhaps you simply need to begin meeting with a counselor on a regular basis, or perhaps you need to enroll in a more serious addiction treatment program. Obviously, some addiction treatment is more serious and needs to be dealt with immediately. An addiction to food, while it is harmful, is far less of an emergency than a serious addiction to alcohol or drugs.

Take a serious look at your life. Be honest about where you are at and realize that regardless of where you are, there is hope and help to move forward. Addiction treatment is a great and healthy step to take. Make an appointment to meet with a professional today and get on the road to freedom and wholeness.
