"Behavioral Addictions: Don't Worry, It's Not a Problem for Me": Dawn Farm.

  community member   < less

Behavioral Addictions: Don't Worry, It's Not a Problem for Me will be presented by Dr Carl Christensen, MD, PhD, D-FASAM. When people think about "addiction" they usually think of substances such as alcohol, nicotine and other drugs. Rewarding behaviors such as gambling, Internet use, gaming, eating, sex, exercise, shopping and other activities also have the potential in susceptible people to become a "process addiction" when the behavior is compulsively continued despite negative consequences. There are similarities between substance addiction and process addiction, and it's not unusual for substance use disorders and process addictions to co-occur. This program will review the underlying mechanisms of process addictions and their similarities to substance use disorders, and discuss effective treatment methods for people with process addictions. This program is part of the Dawn Farm Education Series.
St. Joseph Mercy Hospital Education Center auditorium, 5305 Elliott Drive, St. Joseph Mercy Hospital Education Center, Ypsilanti. Free. 734-485-8725. info@dawnfarm.org http://www.dawnfarmeducation.org [map]
