Types of Addiction
The addictions appearing below relate to some of the issues commonly presented by clients. The list of conditions is not exhaustive and is not intended to imply specialisation on the part of our therapists. Not all of our therapists have dealt with people suffering from each condition referred to in the list. Treatment outcomes are not the same for individuals, and specific results, changes or improved performance are not guaranteed. References to these conditions are for information only. If you are in doubt, you should always consult qualified medical or allied health practitioners, such as a GP, psychiatrist, clinical psychologist or social worker.
Addictions can be extremely complex and frustrating for the person addicted and their family. The complexity is the addiction itself because the condition adds a second layer and diverts attention away from the more original conflict, giving rise to the dependence in the first place.
