About Work Addiction

"Great trouble comes
From not knowing what is enough
Great conflict arises from wanting too much.
When we know enough is enough,
There will always be enough."

-Lao Tsu

Work addiction, or workaholism, affects nearly everyone in North American and Western European societies in on way or another. We define work addiction as spending significant portions of one's life focused on productivity, doing things or accomplishing things out of a sense of driveness. Work addiction is making life choices based on shoulds, have-tos, and forcing rather than from a sense of choice, inner direction and centeredness.

We believe that work addiction is a silent killer more subtle, but more dangerous than drug or alcohol addiction because of it's insidious effects on the body's cardiovascular, neurological, immune and other systems. More people die of heart disease and other overwork related illnesses than all drug and alcohol addictions combined.

It is our intention to provide, through this site and our outpatient services, information and options for recovery from work addiction. The Center for Work Addiction Recovery offers individual and family psychotherapy in our Grand Rapids, Michigan location as well as The Power of Being Seminars.
