Efficient and Inexpensive Addiction Treatment

It is known information that millions of people around the globe are addicted to drugs and alcohol. But there is very little awareness that millions more are addicted to what is known as processes – behaviors that an individual can be addicted to. These include food addiction, sex addiction, gambling addiction, and internet addiction. It comes to a surprise that these process addictions have skyrocketed in recent times.


And though it may seem that process addictions may not have a similar negative effect as alcohol or drug addiction – it is completely untrue. Every addiction whether substance or process can cause casualty and create utter havoc in the life of an addict and the ones close to them.

Understanding Process Addiction

Addiction is a prime chronic disease that affects the alteration of the brain’s reward function. With the use of a process addiction, it further triggers the reward system.

Kinds of Process Addictions Treated at The Alpha Healing Center in India

There are four kinds of process addictions although the treatment for each one is affiliated. The addictions are as follows:

  • Food Addiction
    In recent times ‘food addiction’ and ‘sugar addiction’ has become a well-known term over recent times. Let’s understand what these terms mean. Basically, food and sugar addiction are similar and both subsist when an individual cannot control the urge to consume food specifically those high in sugar, fat and/or salt. And the consumption is so high that it causes negative effects on their body and life.

  • Gambling Addiction
    In some countries, gambling is not only legal but is also promoted. For some individuals, betting and gambling regularly become an addiction that they are unable to stop. They submerge themselves into a large number of debts, ruins personal relations and more.

  • Internet Addictions
    The world wide web is easily accessible on the fingertips of every individual through smartphones, tablets, and laptops. Regrettably, it is challenging to find the difference between a ‘normal’ internet use and internet addiction. The internet is actually a boon to be connected with family and friends but sometimes it interferes with productivity and causes health issues too.

  • Sex Addiction
    Sex is a natural component of human life. For several individuals, it becomes almost an obsession. Sex addiction occurs when a person spends growing measures of time reasoning and questing new sexual encounters. When the effect of sexual addiction is affected by relationships, work productivity and health, it is most likely that an individual is suffering from sex addiction.
