While the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation’s rehab programs focus on addressing alcohol and other drug addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders, there are many other types of compulsive behavioral problems that can be difficult to stop without intervention and treatment—despite causing harmful consequences. In some cases, these conditions are referred to as "process addictions." According to WebMD and Hazelden Publishing, some common threads between alcohol and drug addiction and these behavioral health conditions include: The belief that your happiness depends on using the "drug of choice" Your relationships suffer because of your compulsive use Your mind and body have developed a tolerance to your drug of choice When you don’t have your drug of choice you experience some type of withdrawal You are no longer in control and despite obvious signs that you and your loved ones are suffering because of your addiction, you cannot stop WebMD and Hazelden Publishing list of the most common types of "process addiction" or problematic behavioral health conditions includes: Exercise Addiction – Exercising too frequently, to the point where it is damaging and injuring the body, but one continues to exercise and not rest.
