"Friends dared me to steal an item in the shop. This made me feel an adrenaline rush I never felt before. I made it part of my life but got caught. My mom spoke to a therapist at Marriage Counseling Seattle and as it was still a minor offense I came light off it. I started addiction and recover counseling to help me fight my shoplifting addiction. I am so glad that I go help."

Risk Factors Associated With Addiction
Addiction can afflict any person at any time, but some people are more vulnerable to addictions. You have a family and genetic history of addiction playing a huge role in addiction development.
For some people, it happens with pressure as it is a way to relax, fit into social groups, or even gain acceptance from others. However, even emotional trauma can lead to substance abuse as it helps numb the pain finding relief.
