If your behavior is out of control you may be struggling with addiction.

Addiction is the experience of withdrawal when a substance or behavior is stopped.

Addiction counselling can help. Mood counselling provides treatment for all addiction issues.

The 4 Cs of addiction:

  • Craving

  • loss of Control of amount or frequency of use

  • Compulsion to use
