Video: Do You Need Help For An Addiction?
Transcript: The first way to know if you are ready to be helped with your behavioral addiction is to acknowledge if you have tried to make course corrections yourself. Nobody on a 12-step program hasn’t tried to do it on their own first. Everybody tries. The question is at what point to do you reach out for some professional help? Hopefully, people seek out treatment for their behavioral addiction before they hit the classic phrase “rock-bottom”. It can be done. It is a little harder when you haven’t hit rock-bottom because you have nothing to push off of. Nothing has scared you enough to make your behavioral addiction serious. If you continue to try to make changes, look at relapse or failure at recovery as a positive not a negative. Every time you fail, pick yourself up and say – “What didn’t I do to protect myself from falling back into the system?”
