Humans appear to be designed to be addicted but some addictions are more destructive than others. These include
Addictions can threaten relationships, livelihood, and health and involve endless repeating action, feeling and thought that takes up residence in your head and daily life.
How we can help
At Bower Place, we understand that each addiction is different. Focussed conversations with our clients allows for understanding of each person’s relationship to the addiction and how it benefits them and impacts relationships and the motivation to cease.
Our approach understands that addiction is both an internal neuro-biological issue and an external socio-relational matter. It involves supporting the person to bring the secret internal world to the outside with the use of structured processes and activities. This is done collaboratively and with close involvement by the practitioner.
Using this structure, an individualised approach is developed for each client’s addiction. This provides maximum support for them and their family while helping the client take responsibility for change.
