Beating the
stages of addiction 

Individuals in early addiction recovery may not be ready for treatment and may still be in a phase of defending and rationalizing their substance use. They may not yet fully understand the harm it causes, and focus on the positive feelings it brings.

In the next phase of recovery, an individual may be open to change in the future, but not yet ready to take action. They may be aware of the benefits of becoming sober, but still find comfort in their addiction. This stage is important for loved ones and treatment providers to approach with empathy and understanding, rather than blame, to help guide the individual towards further progress.

In the preparation stage, the individual is becoming increasingly motivated to achieve sobriety and may be taking steps towards it, such as seeking counseling or trying to quit on their own. It’s common for them to have moments of success, but also slip back into contemplation or previous stages when faced with triggers or difficult emotions.

In the action stage, the individual has made substantial changes in their habits and is dedicated to maintaining them. This may include prolonged periods of abstinence and seeking professional help before or after relapses. Change can be seen in various aspects of their lifestyle, including self-care and self-awareness, but ongoing counseling is typically required to maintain progress.

In the maintenance stage, the individual is focused on preventing relapse and maintaining the changes they’ve made, such as regular exercise, healthy activities, and support groups. They have a stronger sense of confidence in their ability to maintain sobriety long-term. This stage can take anywhere from 6 months to 5 years, depending on the individual’s addiction and personal factors. While some may reach this stage quickly, for most it takes a longer-term commitment to solidify change.

Yes, therapy can play a crucial role in preventing and treating addiction. Therapy can help individuals understand and manage their addiction triggers, provide coping mechanisms and emotional support, and develop a comprehensive treatment plan. For opioid abuse, medication-assisted treatment (MAT) can also be combined with therapy. For elders and seniors, addiction therapy can be tailored to their specific needs and age-related challenges. CBT is a common type of therapy used in addiction treatment, but individualized treatment plans can also include a combination of therapies, such as group therapy, motivational interviewing, and holistic therapies. It’s important to consider all available addiction treatment options and find the best fit for the individual.

Addiction begins due to various causes, including genetic susceptibility, environmental factors, and psychological reasons. Substance use disorders can escalate when drugs or alcohol are repeatedly consumed despite negative consequences. Effective treatment programs for addiction usually involve a combination of evidence-based therapies such as contingency management, support groups, dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), and individual counseling. Participating in support groups like Alcoholics Anonymous or seeking treatment at an addiction center can also be beneficial in receiving help and maintaining recovery. It is critical for individuals to receive professional treatment for addiction to address underlying causes and establish a strong foundation for long-lasting recovery.

The best therapy for gambling addiction may vary depending on the individual and their specific needs. However, some commonly used and effective therapies include:

  1. Group therapy – provides support and a sense of community with others struggling with similar compulsions.
  2. Coping skills therapy – helps individuals develop healthy coping mechanisms to manage urges and triggers.
  3. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) – focuses on changing negative thought patterns and behaviors associated with gambling addiction.
  4. Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) – helps individuals process and resolve traumatic experiences related to gambling addiction.

It’s important to find a therapy that works best for the individual and to have a comprehensive treatment plan that addresses both the addiction and any underlying mental health conditions. It’s also recommended to seek professional help from a licensed therapist or addiction specialist.

Yes, seniors can benefit from addiction therapy. Addiction is a chronic condition that can affect individuals of any age, and therapy can help seniors manage their addiction and maintain recovery.

The Institute on Drug Abuse (IDA) and National Institute on Drugs (NIDA) recommend therapy options such as motivational therapy, motivational interviewing, and rational emotive behavior therapy (REBT) for seniors struggling with addiction. Therapy can help seniors understand and manage their addiction triggers, provide coping mechanisms and emotional support, and develop a comprehensive treatment plan. Therapy can also address any age-related challenges and mental health conditions that may be contributing to the addiction. It’s important for seniors to seek professional help from a licensed therapist or addiction specialist to receive the best possible care for their specific needs.
