What is a behavioural addiction?
A behavioural addiction is characterised by an individual compulsively engaging in a certain type of behaviour, such as gambling, love and sex, internet usage, shopping, or others, despite the negative consequences that this has for multiple areas of their life including their relationships with others, their mental and emotional wellbeing, and their ability to function effectively on a daily basis.
In a similar way to alcohol and drug addictions, people who struggle with a behavioural addiction typically experience a psychological ‘high’, or a rush of pleasure/adrenaline when they engage in a certain behaviour, which causes them to engage in this behaviour over and over again until they become addicted to it.
The most common forms of behavioural addiction that we are able to provide treatment for at North London include:
Gambling addiction help in London
Also commonly referred to as ‘problem gambling’ or 'compulsive gambling', this form of behavioural addiction is characterised by the urge to gamble repeatedly, despite the profoundly negative impact that this can have on lots of different areas of your life. Gambling addiction can cause problems in relationships and at work, can have a detrimental impact on your psychological wellbeing, and can also cause serious financial difficulties.

Love and sex addiction help in London
This form of behavioural addiction is characterised by compulsively craving attention and intimacy, and having a compulsion to engage in excessive and increasingly risky sexual behaviours, despite the associated negative consequences. Love and sex addiction typically develops when healthy intimate relationships gradually become destructive and damaging.

Internet addiction treatment at Priory Hospital North London
Internet addiction is characterised by excessive, non-work related internet usage. Internet addiction can encompass a wide variety of problems, from compulsions to use social media, through to gambling, pornography and shopping, and as such, may often co-occur alongside another form of behavioural addiction. If you or someone that you know seems to be compulsively accessing the internet and spending an excessive and increasing amount of time online, this may indicate that they have developed a harmful internet addiction.

Behavioural addiction treatment at North London is based on the renowned 12-Step addiction treatment philosophy, which is used worldwide in the treatment of both behavioural and substance addictions. The 12-Step philosophy was first popularised by Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), and is an abstinence-based model, that has since been adapted to treat behavioural addictions. The 12-Step programme centres on your motivation to change your compulsive behaviours, and also includes elements of spirituality within the treatment and rehabilitation journey.
