Addiction counseling is a branch of mental health that focuses on those struggling with addictions. While this may be an overlooked, or at least under reported area of mental health, there are patients that struggle every day with the impact their addictions have on their lives.
The human mind plays a starring role in most aspects of our lives. It shapes our behavior, which in turn shapes our world. And that makes the psychology behind addictive studies far more than just a fascinating area of science. It provides a way to see the reasons behind our actions, which lets us understand and improve upon those actions for the betterment of our individual selves, our families, our organizations, our communities, and our whole society.
