And love addicts inevitably experience the same basic consequences as all other addicts: depression, anxiety, lowered self-esteem, ruined relationships, trouble at work or in school, declining physical and/or emotional health, financial woes, loss of interest in family, friends, hobbies, and other previously enjoyable activities, etc.
Hermitage Integrated Treatment :
We use a blend of traditional and experiential therapies and approaches to help clients address neglect, abuse, enmeshment and attachment issues that may contribute to love addiction. Our unique approach to treating love addiction helps clients uncover, accept and learn to love their authentic selves. Coupled with trauma-focused therapies, mindfulness practices and shame-reduction methods, clients are encouraged to build self-esteem and develop healthy relationship patterns and coping skills. Co-occurring issues like depression, anxiety, substance abuse and eating disorders are also addressed during treatment so clients can begin recovering from all of the challenges that prevent them from having healthy and intimate relationships.
