Clinical Hypnotherapy in the Treatment of Addiction

User Avatar


Addiction takes place when the brAin’s reward system has been hijacked and neural pathways have been redirected. The reward system is activated by the pleasure derived through various stimuli: substances, compulsive behaviors, and relationships. Clinical hypnotherapy uses the power of the subconscious mind to realign the reward system and reset neurotransmitters. By utilizing the three components that make up the holistic individual (mind, body, and spirit), hypnotic suggestions play a vital role in creating healthy neural connections for sustained recovery.
