Encore Episode: Beyond Drugs & Alcohol: Finding Treatment for Other Addictions
​The severity of drug and alcohol addiction is well documented and there are countless resources devoted to helping people find treatment and get on the road to recovery. 

But, people are also struggling with many other addictions... from shopping and gambling addictions, to an over-dependence on technology. 

These are known as behavioral or process addictions, and finding treatment can often seem daunting, if not impossible. 

Jeff Smith has developed (along with his partner Abhilash Patel) innovative ways to connect people with treatment for addictions other than substance abuse. 

He discusses how to find help and a community if you’re struggling to treat a process addiction.
