The word “addiction” can conjure up many images in our mind, none of which we want to associate with ourselves. The problem with those images is that there is no one face, and no single image of an addict. The last person we might want to think of as struggling with an addiction is ourselves.

However, millions of people across the United States deal with some form of addiction. It may not be drugs, or alcohol. It may be food, shopping, pornography or even tobacco. You may have made promises to your family, promises to God, maybe even promises to yourself. Time after time, you have said that this will be your last drink, last pill, last cigarette, last time on the computer, the last trip for candy bars or clothes. And then you sort through the guilty feelings, the lost money, the lost time, and the lost self-respect.

It isn’t that you don’t want to quit — you don’t know how! And there is no shortage of books, programs and people to tell you how and why to quit. The problem has been that none of them have worked. It may be time to get to the actual cause of your problem, instead of only addressing the symptoms.

At the Theta Wellness Center, we understand that in the case of the addiction, the brain has been re-programmed to only allow feelings of happiness when associated with some type of behavior, chemical or drug. Instead of only focusing on modifying your behavior, we also work to restore the chemicals in your brain to their natural balance, which will allow you to live a life you love, instead of merely existing under the shadow of addiction. By merging processes involving sound, light, motion, hypnosis and even nutrition, we will work with you to recover your life and rebuild it.

If you are tired of struggling with addiction, if you are ready to live life outside of the shadows and are ready for the weight to be lifted from your shoulders, contact the Theta Wellness Center in Sandy, Utah, today at 801-590-7461, or visit us at Every person and every addiction is different, and together we can create a program tailored for you.
