Areas of Focus
Process Addictions

Addiction is anything a person makes highest priority in life, over and above other priorities, doing it to his/her own detriment to the detriment of others who are closest to him/her and continuing to do it even in the face of obvious negative consequences. Two broad categories of addiction are Ingested Substance Addictions and Process Addictions. Ingested Substance Addictions include any synthetic or natural substance one might frequently ingest in excess for the purpose of medicating physical, emotional and/or mental pain. Process Addictions include any activity, thought, feeling or relationship one might use to alleviate the personal pain one experiences as intolerable reality.


Our program is designed for all members of the addictive family system (but not concurrently). Our groups consist of people with a wide array of negative behavior patterns, including substance issues, relationship problems, sexual compulsivity, eating/food issues, workaholism, perfectionism, control and caretaking, misery and martyrdom, rage and anger, and anxiety and depression. We apply twelve-step principles to all of these self-defeating, unmanageable habits.
