Process Addictions

When it comes to addiction, there is no black and white way to look at it. The same set of recovery will not work for every person. We are all different which means we all process and heal differently too.


If you’re unfamiliar with the subject, process addictions refer to thoughts, feelings, activities, and relationships a person may use to survive an unhappy life. When people think about addictions, drug use and alcohol usually come to mind.


Substances are easy to get addicted to, but behaviors can also become addictive. With process addictions, it’s about brain chemistry. An activity that that gives someone a rush can become habitual. Examples include sex, gambling, shopping, and work.


Many who come to Maui Recovery for help have several process addictions. Through our program, they learn that their negative relationships, thoughts, activities, and feelings are the manifestations of something deeper.

Ever Asked Yourself the Question, What is Wrong With Me?

We all have our own behaviors and engagements throughout the day. Some of us process them differently than others. Some of us are just predisposed to process a certain way. Whatever the case, there is an option for everyone

Addiction Come in Many Forms. Maui Recovery Works to Heal as Many of Those Forms as Possible.

Think of pain as a tree trunk. The branches that stick out from that trunk are the “symptoms” of pain (workaholism, sex addiction, etc.). At Maui Recovery, we cut away at the branches using life coaching, group therapy, treatment programs, and individual therapy. Should any of those branches grow back, we work to get to the “roots” of a client’s pain and heal the tree for good.
