What is Recovery Like From Behavioral Disorders?
Recovery comes in a myriad of forms, and recovery is unique to each person. When people think of recovery, often drugs and alcohol are the first things that come to mind. For those that suffer from behavioral disorders, the consequences of their situation are just as devastating and recovery is just as crucial.
What are Behavioral Disorders?
Behavioral disorders occur when a person displays emotions or actions that are disruptive to their lives, have a negative effect on relationships or health, and are more habitual than situational. There are a wide variety of behavioral disorders including, but not limited to, eating disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder, anxiety, and behavioral addiction. A behavioral addiction can be alcohol, drugs, video games, gambling, sex, or any activity that the person obsesses over and allows to control their lives.
Recovery from Behavioral Disorders
As with addiction, someone that is dealing with a behavioral disorder may at the beginning feel it is no big deal and that it is not a problem. As the disorder progresses, they may have friends and family concerned about their behavior. Often the person dealing with the behavioral disorder is largely in denial for quite some time before realizing that there is a problem and making the decision to get help and make changes in their lives.
