Addiction Therapists in Dallas, Texas

Addiction involves a strong, persistent urge to engage in a certain behavior. People can be addicted to gambling, shopping, drug use, and so on. An individual may rely on their addiction to feel brief happiness or escape negative emotions. Even when the addiction disrupts their everyday life, the individual may have trouble stopping the behavior.

Substance abuse is a common form of addiction in Dallas and other parts of the country. In 2017, 20.7 million Americans aged 12 and over needed substance abuse treatment. However, only 4 million received any addiction treatment. In a survey by SAMHSA, 17% of people listed stigma as a reason for not getting substance abuse treatment.

There is no shame in getting help for addiction. Addiction can be extremely difficult to overcome on one’s own. An addiction counselor in Dallas can help you address the social and emotional roots of your behavior. By confronting the underlying causes of addiction, you can reduce your reliance on unhealthy behaviors to cope with problems. Professional support can be vital to both recovery and relapse prevention.
