What are different types of addiction?
There are many different types of addiction, but generally, they can fit into two different categories: chemical addictions and behavioral addictions. Here’s a breakdown of each category and some common examples of each:
- Chemical addictions – Involving the use of substances like alcohol, opioids, nicotine, amphetamines, methamphetamine, etc.
- Behavioral addictions – Involving compulsive, persistent, repeated behaviors like gambling, internet gaming, eating, social media, etc.
It can be difficult to tell if you or someone you care about has an addiction, but there are some signs shared between many addictions, like cravings, disinterest in other activities, loss of control, trouble managing other activities like work, relationship difficulties, withdrawal symptoms, and others.
Can a doctor really help me overcome my addiction?
Yes, absolutely. Even your primary care physician may be able to help you, but you may be in better hands with a specialist in addiction treatment. The first step in overcoming your addiction is to reach out to someone, like a family member or a professional, for help. If you’re a family member of someone you suspect has an addiction, then a family intervention can help and motivate the person to seek professional care.
An addiction professional is especially capable of helping a person with an addiction. There are different types of addiction professionals, like licensed alcohol and drug counsellors, social workers, psychologists, psychiatrists, interventionists, and others. We have many of these professionals here at MedSave Clinic, and they’re able to provide a number of effective treatments and therapies for patients with addictions.
