At Honu House Hawaii, we specialize in treating behavioral addictions. Behavioral or process addictions are compulsive behaviors that interfere with a person’s daily life, relationships, and overall wellbeing. These addictions are just as severe as substance addictions, but they do not involve the use of drugs or alcohol. Process addictions can be particularly dangerous as they can be challenging to recognize and overcome. When we engage in compulsive behaviors such as excessive gambling or excessive viewing of porn without using mind-altering substances, it’s easy to become addicted without realizing it. These activities can consume our lives, leading to negative consequences like financial debt, mental health issues, and strained relationships with friends and family. That’s why it’s essential for people suffering from process addictions to get professional help to identify unhealthy patterns of behavior and develop skills for dealing with challenging situations more positively.
We offer a comprehensive and personalized approach to behavioral addiction treatment that addresses the underlying causes of the addiction. Each person is unique and requires a customized treatment plan to succeed. Therefore, we take the time to understand our client’s individual needs, goals, and challenges to create a personalized treatment plan.
