It is commonly recognised that alcohol addiction and drug addiction affect millions of individuals throughout the world. But many people are unaware of the millions of people who have what is known as behavioural addiction, or process addiction, which are behaviours or processes that a person becomes addicted to. Some of these addictions include food addiction,gambling addiction,internet addiction and sex addiction. Once you recognise the most common behavioural addictions, it is easy to see why treatment for process addiction has risen in the recent years and how behavioural addiction treatment in Thailand could help.
Even though people often assume that behavioural addictions could not have as severe negative effects as drug or alcohol addiction, this is not accurate information. All forms of addiction, regardless of whether they are behavioural or substance addictions can be detrimental to the life of an addict and to those who care for them.
Addictive behaviours can occur in many forms, often characterised by the compulsive nature of the behaviour that is indicative of a behavioural addiction.Some common process addictions include food, gambling and sex addiction.
