What is Addiction?
The textbook definition of addiction is the psychological and physical inability to stop consuming a chemical, drug, activity, or substance, even when it’s causing psychological and physical harm.
At Body Positive Works we dig deeper. We go way beyond, seeking to understand the reasons behind the individual’s addiction – exploring relationships with family, friends, and most importantly – relationship with the self.
That’s why we identify and address the heart and mind issues behind the addiction, walking alongside the individual on their journey to short term stabilization, and long-term growth, health and wellness.
