Yes, it is possible to reverse pre-addiction.
It is much easier to treat and recover at this stage before severe symptoms and consequences that come with addiction have occurred. It’s advantageous to make changes at the pre-addiction stage to prevent the onset of full-blown addiction, reduce negative consequences, and improve quality of life. For some people, this includes abstinence or sobriety but others may choose to work toward moderation.
Treating pre-addiction typically means implementing lifestyle changes and developing healthier habits. While some people manage to change their substance use on their own, it’s beneficial to address pre-addiction with the guidance of a coach or therapist. The team at Confidant are experts in pre-addiction and can help you reach your goals.
