Addiction at Orlando Hypnosis Clinic
Some people think that addictions form simply because of the way drugs, alcohol, and other addictive activities make you feel. While it’s true that pleasurable effects contribute to the addictiveness of certain substances and activities, this is only one piece of the puzzle. At Orlando Hypnosis Clinic, we believe that the root of addiction stems not from the substance or activity itself, but from some other underlying condition that causes a person to seek out drugs or alcohol in the first place.
Many people begin to use drugs or alcohol to escape from some pain or anguish in their lives. By confronting the inherent cause of an addiction and working to alleviate whatever condition or emotion a person is trying to escape from, hypnosis helps mitigate addiction faster and with a more prolonged effectiveness. Our Orlando addiction hypnosis clinic is equipped to help individuals who are ready to fight their addictions in a safe and non-intrusive way.
Common Addictions Treated with Hypnosis
Hypnosis helps individuals overcome whatever feelings, fears, or incorrect beliefs that are causing them to engage in addictive behaviors. Because of this, hypnosis is effective at resolving a wide array of addictions. At Orlando Hypnosis Clinic, we are prepared to combat any addiction related to:
- Cocaine and Crack Addiction
- Prescription Drugs (including opioids)
While it may feel impossible, an addiction can be overcome. The positivity and mindfulness of guided thought through hypnosis can be a useful weapon for battling your addiction and getting your life back where you want it to be.
Addictions Treated Fast and Permanently at Orlando Hypnosis Clinic
Addiction is one of the toughest problems facing our culture today. The growing problems within the family, as well as many other cultural stressors, make addiction a national and international problem that has grown by leaps and bounds. In the U.S. we have promoted a “feel good right now” mentality that tends to feed the addictive process.
Contrary to some popular thought, people don’t become addicted to drugs, alcohol, or sex just for the fun of it. There are usually reasons why an addiction happens. And these same reasons make an addiction difficult to stop.
A person is drawn to an addictive behavior or substance because of the way it affects his or her emotions. It enhances some feelings and numbs out others. Emotional pain is reduced momentarily…and the hope is that it will not come back. Of course, it does. Over time more and more of the behavior or substance is required to produce the desired effect. More intense sex or more alcohol is required to numb out feelings, or more cocaine is needed to get the heightened sense of excitement and competence.
Eventually the intensity of the behavior or substance needed to produce the high become dangerous in and of itself.
At the Orlando Hypnosis Inc. Wellness Center, we have successful programs for a wide variety of addictions using hypnotherapy. Here are just the top ten:
- Alcohol Addiction
- Cocaine Addiction
- Drug Addiction
- Food Addiction
- Internet Addiction
- Meth (Methamphetamine) Addiction
- Sex Addiction
- Work Addiction
For most people, hypnosis allows for the resolution of the issues that caused the addictive behavior in the first place. Rather than teaching that an addict is helpless against their addiction and must attend meetings for the rest of their lives, our patients do not define themselves by their addiction. Instead they are led through a process that allows them to solve the underlying issue(s) that led them to seek the addiction and thereby solving the whole problem, remaining drug free and able to finally enjoy life as they always wanted.
What to Expect and the End Result
The psychological and emotional issues surrounding the addiction will be addressed. Just exactly as you learned to walk and talk in your infancy, your subconscious mind will be taught to cope with issues you were incapable of dealing with at one time which led to abusive behavior. Coping is an important part of healing the emotional pain.
Any emotional or physiological triggers for relapse will be identified and avoidance
techniques explored and put into action. Positive feelings and the ability to succeed will be reinforced, as can motivational techniques, body image and self-control. Additionally, many clients have found that hypnosis calms the nerves, the mind and the body, releases stress and alleviates anxiety. Imagine this without the use of a replacement drug such as Prozac.
The positive ideas and perspectives that you receive build self-esteem and boost confidence. You are subconsciously taught personal accountability for yourself, your thoughts, and your actions again and be completely successful in your recovery. But moreover hypnosis has a positive effect on every aspect of most people’s lives.
You can even use hypnosis in conjunction with your support network if you feel it is necessary OR are part of a court required program to put you back in control of your emotions and make your recovery a complete success.
The Addiction Philosophy That Works: Alcohol, Drug Addiction, Sex Addiction & More
- Proven Effective
- Completely Safe
- Quick and Easy
- Fewer Withdrawal Symptoms
Alcohol and drugs (prescription or illegal) are just a quick and easy way to change ordinary, everyday reality from unbearable to bearable. All it takes is a short trip to the liquor store, few drinks, a pill, or even a joint. People who are dependent are merely using their substance as a crutch to get through the day. Yet doctors and scientists are still treating drug and alcohol abuse as if the substance is the problem, when it has nothing to do with the problem. They might as well be studying “scratchism” for people who have a chronic itch.
Suppose you had a chronic itch and scratched it regularly throughout the day. Would you have “scratchism”? Would you be a “scratchaholic”? Of course not. What if you had a constant headache, and to cope with it you took aspirin several times each day. Would you suffer from “aspirinism”, would you be called an “aspirinaholic”? More important, if you sought help for the treatment of those ailments, would you be treated for “scratchism” or “aspirinism”? Of course not; you would be treated for the underlying conditions that led you to scratch or use aspirin. — perhaps poison ivy or stress.”
In order for a continual and lasting recovery, you need to address the reason you drink or use drugs (the itch), not simply focus on the use itself (the scratch). Hypnotherapy is a very effective tool for you to use to uncover the reasons that you drink or use drugs, and also to help you resolve those issues. Once you uncover and resolve those feelings or beliefs that led you to addiction, you will notice that the “itch” is gone, and there is no longer a need to “scratch.”

Orlando Hypnosis Inc.’s addiction recovery program is nothing like 12-step programs because it is based upon a completely different paradigm. Where the 12-step programs come from the belief that someone with an addiction is destined to be an addict for the rest of their lives, our program looks to the current research in neuro-science which shows that people continue to change the way they think, and therefore behave throughout their lives.
Rather than attending meetings, (the program can be used in conjunction with 12-step or other recovery methods) they complete a set hypnosis sessions, usually six to eight depending upon the individual, over the course of a month. In between sessions, they listen to hypnotic reinforcement CDs at home. Each session builds upon those that came before, so that by the end of the month, people engaged in the program have solved the underlying issue (sensitizing event) causing the need for using, learned how to deal with self-sabotage and have vastly improved their self-esteem. They have also developed the beliefs, values, boundaries and internal identity of someone who has no need for the substances or behaviors they used to depend upon.
Our company’s success rates are 97 % overall. The 3% of clients that returned to their addiction fell into one of two categories:
- People that had no interest in quitting.
- People that were quitting to appease someone else.
Compare this with the statistics offered by Alcoholics Anonymous which shows that 75% of their participants relapse continually in less than one year. The same goes for in-patient programs. Addicted patients get through withdrawal – but once they get back into the “real world” the same habits resurface. That’s why people waste tens of thousands of dollars repeating inpatient programs, treating only the addiction rather than the underlying cause

Hypnosis can be a powerful alternative to traditional 12-step addiction programs (but the two can also be used in tandem to complement each other). Hypnosis is a safe, natural alternative to other forms of treatment, but it can be incredibly effective.
