Addiction Counseling

Sandy Springs Addiction Counseling at Thriveworks Atlanta

Addiction can affect anyone. It has no prejudice of race, social economic status, or age. In addition, even very high achieving individuals, who pride themselves on managing their lives well, can find themselves struggling with an addiction. What's often misunderstood about addiction is that some people can function relatively well, even for a long time, while hiding an addiction from those closest to them. That said, eventually one's addiction will grow and eventually break the illusion that everything's okay when it isn't. 

If you're reading this now, perhaps you're struggling with--or feeling powerless over--an addiction. You are not alone, and there is help. Maybe you feel trapped by the walls of one of these addictions: Alcohol, drugs, food, sex, shopping, relationships. Whatever it is, an addiction counselor at Thriveworks Atlanta can help.

Signs and Symptoms of Addiction

Addiction—be it to a substance, shopping, a relationship, sex, or something else—is characterized by an intense focus on using the substance or engaging in the specific behavior. Additionally, the following are common symptoms of addiction:

  • Inability to stop use
  • Continued use despite health problems that result from use
  • Changes in weight and/or appetite
  • Financial difficulties
  • Increase in tolerance
  • Denial that there is a problem
