When you hear the word “addiction,” you may think of someone having a problem with drugs or alcohol.  However, addictions can take many other forms, such as gambling, shopping, or eating.  An individual can grow addicted to many different substances and behaviors. Many things in excess can grab onto your life and destroy everything you’ve worked for and hold dear.

Do I Have an Addiction? What Are the Effects?

As we touched on above, addiction is dependence on a substance or behavior. Whatever the addiction may be rooted in, it can have harmful effects—physical, emotional, and mental—on the individual suffering with the addiction. Here are just a few of these effects:

  • Weight loss
  • Malnourishment
  • Irritability
  • Loss of interest
  • Isolation
  • Hyperactivity
Additionally, addiction can cause one to lose touch with their friends and family and fail to fulfill important responsibilities at work or at home. The therapists at Thriveworks Philadelphia want to help you manage your addiction and prevent or address these effects of addiction. If you think you might have an addiction, consider working with one of our providers. You can call today to schedule.
