1. One Addiction - To overcome the addiction epidemic, the first thing we need to let go of is the idea that there are multiple addictions. The truth is there is only one.
If we continue to treat only the symptoms (addictive behavior), no one will ever be cured. The odds are stacked against you when you focus only on the symptoms. Advertisers are banking on the idea that you're not happy, and all you need to feel better is more drinks, more unhealthy food, more medication, more sex, and whatever other product they have to fill the gap you feel inside.
This is why high-functioning members of society find it easy to neglect their addictions and keep them hidden amongst a busy agenda and positive outward appearance. Until it's too late and they hit an emotional button that negatively impacts their marriage, careers, and friendships.
The first step is a comprehensive diagnostic, which establishes your goals and a customized treatment plan.
2. One Cause - The second step is to address your symptom’s underlying cause. Everyone who experiences long-term suffering does so because of unresolved grief from the past. Together, we will work through that unresolved pain, so it is no longer a driving force in self-destructive behavior.
We're all born with a natural tendency towards happiness - to feel good in our own skin. It is the natural state of being human. Yet the fact of life is that trauma happens. Pain, sorrow, and loss happen. But no matter how brutal, awful, or intense the pain suffered, trauma itself does not cause the pain. Trauma unaddressed does.
Once you're able to recognize the root cause, you are ready for the cure.
3. One Cure - The third step focuses on replacing your self-defeating behavior with self-love. You’ll be shown tools you haven’t previously learned, like how to feel rather than zoning out and how to express your authentic self with love and clarity.
People who love themselves don't want to self-destruct. When we understand this basic concept, addiction can be eradicated before it ever starts.
