Dr. Kent Provost, instructor, Argosy University, Chicago, was recently quoted in Reader’s Digest regarding “20 Secrets Addiction Counselors Desperately Want You to Know.”
Dr. Provost, a licensed therapist and addiction specialist, discusses biological and psychological components of addiction. He mentions that healing is a matter of looking at the underlying issues that contribute to the behavior – since most addictions are byproducts of other issues. He also highlights some of the biggest mistakes people make when seeking treatment for an addiction.
He’s quoted in the article as saying, "trying to do a major accomplishment and focusing just on that can make people give up too early. Rather it's better to take smaller steps and keep progressing toward recovery. It took a while to get into the addiction and it will take time to fully recover from it. This is not a quick-fix process, especially when going deeper over time with what might have been and continues to be contributing to the engagement in the addiction."
