What are process addictions?

March 30, 2021
All Points North Lodge

Arlene Story:

Process addictions are those addictions that do not involve substances. So it includes things like sex addiction, love addiction, codependency, shopping addiction, exercise addiction, workaholism, hoarding, eating disorders, we could go on and on. But it's those addictions that we experience and it actually changes how our brain is functioning when we're involved in them. And they become very self-destructive. And very often they're things that we do in our everyday lives. I mean we all shop, but it doesn't become problematic for everybody. The same with exercise. Exercise is healthy but taken to an extreme it becomes very self-destructive.
