Living with the challenges of addiction requires understanding and compassionate care from yourself, your loved ones, and your counselor. At BCB Therapy in Bend, we're dedicated to guiding individuals through their recovery journey with treatment programs designed to meet each person's unique needs. Our specialized approach to addiction therapy covers a broad spectrum of behaviors, from substance abuse to behavioral dependencies, aiming for long-term wellness.

What Are The Different Types of Addiction?

Addiction manifests in various forms, impacting lives beyond just substance misuse. At BCB Therapy, we address a range of addictions, including traditional substance addictions like alcohol, drugs, and nicotine, but also behavioral addictions such as gambling and shopping.

  • Substance addictions involve a physical dependency, challenging individuals with cravings and withdrawal symptoms.
  • Behavioral addictions are characterized by compulsive engagement in activities despite the negative consequences they bring, affecting daily routines and interpersonal relationships.

By understanding the different types of addiction, BCB Therapy provides tailored treatment plans that address the specific needs and challenges of each patient.

What Are the Signs and Symptoms of Addiction?

The most common signs of addiction include an urge to engage in specific repetitive and destructive behavior, unsuccessful efforts to cut down or control it, and spending excessive time in activities related to obtaining, using, or recovering from the substance or behavior. Physically, addiction may present as withdrawal symptoms or tolerance, while psychologically, it often leads to the neglect of other activities.

Additional indicators include changes in mood, decreased social interaction outside of the addictive behavior, and financial problems due to spending on substances or activities. These symptoms can vary widely among individuals but generally disrupt personal, professional, and social lives, emphasizing the need for effective intervention and support.

How is Addiction Managed and Treated?

Addiction is managed and treated through a multifaceted approach that includes behavioral therapies, counseling, medication-assisted treatment, and support groups. Behavioral therapies, like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), are central to modifying a patient's thinking and behaviors to help manage triggers and stress.

For certain substance addictions, such as opioids, medication-assisted treatment may be necessary, offering relief from withdrawal symptoms and reducing cravings. Comprehensive treatment plans also emphasize the importance of aftercare planning to prevent relapse, incorporating ongoing counseling, participation in support groups like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) or Narcotics Anonymous (NA), and, in some cases, a stay in a sober living environment.

To help the recovery journey and ensure lasting change, BCB Therapy emphasizes the importance of a personalized treatment plan for each individual's unique circumstances and needs. Understanding that addiction recovery is a continuous process, our team provides ongoing support and resources, giving our clients the tools they need for long-term wellness.
