Popularity of Hypnotherapy for Drug Addiction
Hypnotherapy for drug addiction is quickly becoming a new technique used by hypnotherapists and psychologists to help patients recover from addictive behaviors and improve their lives.
Breaking bad habits is hard to do, but breaking free from drug addiction is exponentially harder. Whether it’s popping pills or falling prey to illegal drugs, drug dependency is no joke. People sometimes develop addictions to prescription pain medications like Oxycontin, Percocet, morphine, and Tylenol with codeine. Patients may start out merely trying to get some pain relief, but over time, their bodies develop a tolerance and require higher doses for pain, which may lead to addiction.
Illegal drugs like cocaine, heroin, and marijuana are also very addictive. When using these drugs over a long period of time, the body, brain and nervous system are damaged and affected in ways that are sometimes irreparable.
How hypnotherapy for drug abuse works
Hypnotherapy for drug dependency helps you overcome your addiction by identifying what is driving your compulsion to use drugs and then refocusing that desire into something positive. Did you know that even though you mentally crave the drug, and your body reacts when you use it and goes through withdrawal when you don’t, the actual addiction is caused by something in your subconscious mind?
You see, your subconscious mind retains every thought, feeling, emotion, and the situation you have ever experienced, and uses these past events to influence how you think, behave, and react to situations today and in the future. For some reason, sometimes your subconscious will fixate on and magnify something from your past causing an exaggerated response with how you deal with current events or situations. The big problem is that you might not have any memory of the past event, and so are unaware that your mind is making into more than it was.
This is where hypnotherapy for drug abuse helps. Through various hypnosis for drug addiction techniques, a certified hypnotherapist can help you determine why you abuse drugs and then change how your mind and body reacts to them. To do this, your hypnotist will direct you into a trance-like natural state of being. While in this state, the practitioner is able to reach deep into your subconscious and help you identify the memories or feelings that are causing your cravings.
Once these are identified, your hypnotist can reprogram how your mind reacts to drugs. Using special techniques hypnotherapist can make your subconscious see drugs as repulsive and unpleasant objects. By making the idea of drugs so disturbing, your body and mind will no longer want to use them. Much like how you do not crave foods that you find distasteful.
