Effective Treatment for Process Addictions at The Cabin Dubai

Process addictions are compulsive behaviours that involve actions rather than substances. While most people associate addiction with drugs or alcohol, process addiction centres on behaviours or rituals that involve neither. Despite this, they still share most components of a chemical addiction. Often, process addictions are more subtle and ‘socially acceptable’ than their drug or alcohol-based counterparts, but they are every bit as damaging.

The most common process addictions we see at The Cabin Dubai are:

  • Gambling
  • Internet
  • Pornography
  • Shopping

People often ask when a ‘bad habit’ crosses the line and becomes a process addiction.  The simplest answer is that a habit or behaviour has become an addiction when it:

  1. Deviates from what is considered normal.
  2. Causes distress to the person experiencing it.
  3. Negatively impacts some aspect of the person’s life.
  4. The person with the behaviour is unable or unwilling to stop or decrease the behaviour for any significant length of time.
