Behavioral Addiction – How do people change?


Can an individual’s resistance to change hamper their recovery?

Is resistance normal?

by Sanam Naran – Counselling Psychologist

You may be asking yourself some of these questions about Behavioral Addiction, either for yourself or a loved one struggling with addiction. Addiction can ruin lives and have a detrimental effect on all those involved.

Through addiction, one may lose their job, their marriage, their family, their health, their assets and their dignity and self-respect, amongst other things.
