Addictions & Substance Abuse

Addiction is a complex condition, a brain disease that is manifested by compulsive substance use despite harmful consequence. An addictive substance (be it alcohol, tobacco, opioids, cocaine or prescription drugs) feels good because it stimulates the pleasure center of the brain through neurotransmitters such as dopamine and GABA. If you have a genetic predisposition, addictive substances don’t just feel good, they feel so good that you will want to chase after them. Addictions do not only include physical things we consume, such as drugs or alcohol, but may include behavioral addictions, such as gambling, sex, internet - in other words, addiction may refer to a substance dependence or behavioral addiction. Many of us can use substances or become engaged in activities without any significant problems. Some people, however, may experience damaging psychological and/or physical effects when their habit becomes an addiction.


Addictive substances feel different inside an addict’s brain than they do to a non-addict. Therefore, the two sides have difficulty understanding each other. People who have developed an addiction may not be aware that their behavior is out of control and causing problems for themselves and others.


Our research has shown that holistic healing techniques or alternative medicine benefits individuals suffering from addiction, supporting greater emotional and physical well-being.
