Love

 

People struggling with love addiction use it the same way that an alcoholic would use alcohol: to numb the feelings and escape the painful parts of reality.

 

Love addicts get addicted to the euphoric effects of romance. The love addict may have their mind set on unavailable people, some cannot let go of a toxic relationship even if they are unhappy, depressed, lonely, neglected or in danger. Love addicts obsess about their loved ones, some use sex to manage feelings; others become love avoidant. Love addiction is about powerlessness over our distorted thoughts, feelings and behavior when it comes to love, fantasies and relationships. It is often a way to deal with the effects of early trauma and neglect.

 

At EXIST, we help our clients understand and recover by working on both the symptoms and the underlying issues causing the addiction. We offer treatment in the form of one-on-one sessions as well as group therapy.

 

After a thorough initial assessment we help our clients find the treatment that suits their needs. Being extensively networked with other treatment facilities, clients may also be referred to detoxification centres and residential programs according to their needs.
