Exclusive Behavioural Addictions Treatment in Central London Rehab


Behavioural addictions are characterised by compulsive behaviour. A behavioural addiction can be linked to several mental health conditions whereby the individual repeatedly engages in a particular behaviour, even when that behaviour is destructive. Essentially they have lost the power to control their behaviour. Behavioural addictions can also be known as process addictions and common ones include:

  • Gambling addiction
  • Shopping addiction
  • Internet addiction
  • Sex and love addiction
  • Gaming addiction
  • Porn addiction
  • Bitcoin addiction
  • Exercise addiction
  • Compulsive hoarding
  • Work addiction

While the compulsive behaviour around the addiction may seem insurmountable, there are treatment options available to help you deal with them.

As with any addiction various factors contribute to the advancement of behavioural addictions including personality types, genetics and medical history that involves alcoholism or substance abuse. This is why at Addcounsel we treat the whole person, not just the symptoms of the addiction. We believe that the person is a complex system of answers to any addiction.

People suffering from behavioural addictions may share common personality traits that can be evidenced after an assessment, such as scoring highly on tests for impulsivity and pleasure-seeking or lowly on tests indicating a disposition to avoiding harm.

A history of substance abuse may also contribute to a behavioural addiction. There has been clear evidence for the relationship between gambling disorders and alcoholism for example, with research showing that an individual with a gambling addiction is 3.8 times more likely to have an alcohol abuse problem.

Research has also indicated that genetics play a part in whether or not some people are more susceptible to developing behavioural addictions. If you have a relative who suffers from some form of process addiction, you have an increased risk one yourself.
