Unintended Addiction

In recent years, a growing number of cancer patients I had the privilege of supporting during their medical treatment, started asking to do more work; this time however it was leveraging the power of their subconscious mind not to help ensure their survival of cancer but rather deal with cancer’s unintended aftermath, addiction.

Addiction? What does addiction have to do with it all?

To be very clear, there is no such a thing as “intended addiction”, it’s just a provocative enough combination of words to start a conversation and a thought process. Point is, no one I’ve ever helped breaking the cycle of addiction actually intended for this to happen, and yet, it did.

As more and more cancer patients survive their medical treatment and transition back into “civilian” life, more and more of them struggle with the long-term side effects of treatment. To ensure a high quality of life and minimizing the impact of these long-terms side effects (fatigue, pain, fear and anxiety etc.) they’re often given medications and drugs, medication and drugs they come to rely upon to help them improve their experience during survivorship.

You’re An Addict.

And then, one day… just like in the case of the boiling frogs who didn’t pay attention to the increasing temperature of the water until it was too late… you wake up and realize you can’t start your day without that pill, without that drug… and in no simple terms you realize, I’m an addict!

Many of you who read these words either on my website or other social media outlets know I’ve been practicing on the Cancer front for almost 20 years. That’s my mission and it’s not going to change, and yet, I feel called upon to broaden the scope of my practice to help address the addiction epidemic. More specifically help people struggling with trauma-based addiction break the cycle of addiction by addressing its non-physical root cause of their suffering i.e. the mental anguish embedded in addiction which fuels the behavior.
