Emotional Hurt and Addictions have certain things in common. Firstly they both can be particularly tricky stop once they have happened and Secondly withdrawal is categorically similar to emotional loss. A Clean Therapy ™ method can be used to deal with both types of problem.

Addictions may be classed as physical, habitual, chemical or a combination of all three. What these all have in common is there is some payback ( a reward ) from a specific activity which results in neurotransmitters being released or blocked. These chemicals may be externally obtained like drugs and alcohol or supplied endogenously. The important distinction is there is a process which an addict will typically go through, typically:

Stimulus, Desire, Activity, Reward

It is the physical and psychological addiction withdrawal that really is the problem. Once the drug is lost to the system there is often a withdrawal counter effect in the body.

Now consider emotional pain. Specifically forms of loss related emotional pain. Here emotional pain is experienced through loosing something or someone precious, having values transgressed or expectations shattered. In essence something that was once present in life is now gone either permanently or temporarily.

When addictive stop there is often an associated withdrawal stage. This withdrawal is very similar to the experience of loss.

Using my Clean Therapy ™ model, a physicalisation and reintegration process in this case. Therapists can deal effectively with the withdrawal element in many cases. And follow up with Clean Generative Change to future orientate clients.
