What is Addiction - Black and White Question Mark

Understanding Addiction

Addiction is a complex and pervasive condition that can affect anyone from any lifestyle. Some people may view addiction as a ‘bad habit’, but this is not the case; addiction is a challenge of both physical and psychological elements.

At its core, addiction is the brain’s adaptation to repeated and continued exposure to a substance or behaviour. This can then lead to a compulsive need that is difficult to overcome single-handedly.

Addictions can take their toll on your physical health, relationships, and personal growth. It can create a feeling of isolation, taking those struggling away from society and those that they love.

Alongside the physical affects of addiction, it can have an impact on different areas of your life, including career opportunities, mental well-being and your quality of life.

How New Leaf Recovery Can Help You

One of the core beliefs at New Leaf Recovery is that anyone can overcome addiction, whether it is behavioural, or substance based. This is why we offer 24/7 support for all clients, helping them break the grips of their addiction.

New Leaf Recovery believes in an empathetic and personal approach to addiction recovery. Our dedicated team takes the time with every client to understand their needs and their journey.
