Addictive/Compulsive Disorder

Behavior labeled “compulsive” presents serious problems to many individuals. Though society on occasion may regard some variants of compulsive behavior as semi acceptable, (workaholics; perfectionists; micromanagers) individuals who find themselves victim to any type of compulsiveness suffer a type of enslavement that can be highly tortuous. Many compulsive types have a strong irrational, ritualistic and uncontrollable characteristic. Addictive cravings, though not necessarily irrational or ritualistic, nevertheless compel an individual to repetitively seek some form of immediate gratification on a never ending basis. Examples would include gambling, eating, sexual activity, video games, stealing, smoking, etc. These cravings are usually characterized by a physical and/ or a psychological dependency. Compulsive / addictive behavior are predictably repetitive and appear out of the control by the individual. However, they potentially respond well to therapy.
