How does Hypnotherapy help rid addictions?

Hypnotherapy is a valuable tool for anyone in recovery from addiction, as it addresses the underlying causes of addiction, and can be effectively used for stress reduction and relapse prevention. Today, addiction specialists agree that we do not get rid of addictions, which means that if someone is truly addicted to a substance, he or she will not be able to consume this substance in a “normal” (controlled) way. Recovery is about being content and happy without the need for mind altering substances.
