When you think about drug addiction treatment, you probably think of a 12-step program. While “traditional” counseling might be the stereotypical treatment, it isn’t the best addiction treatment. There are a number of reasons addiction hypnosis is a more effective treatment option.
Hypnosis can help reprogram your mind and facilitate behavioral change.

Your addiction is rooted in your subconscious mind
Because of its intense cravings and withdrawal symptoms, most people think of drug addiction as a physical problem. However, all of those physical symptoms are actually being driven by your subconscious. For some reason, your subconscious believes that it cannot function without drugs, so it does anything it can to get them – including creating intense physical symptoms.
Unfortunately, “traditional” treatments don’t address the subconscious. Instead, they focus on conscious feelings, thoughts, and actions. Sadly, many drug addicts “fall off the wagon” because they never dealt with the root of the problem. It’s like trying to heal a broken arm with a bandage.
Addiction hypnosis is the only treatment that addresses your subconscious mind
If you really want to eliminate your drug problem, you have to go right to the source. That’s what drug addiction hypnosis does. While you are in a hypnotic state, we at the NY Hypnosis Institute can help you access your subconscious mind. As a result, you may discover memories and emotions that you never knew existed, that are buried deep inside your subconscious mind. You never would have gained access to them through “traditional” therapy.
Hypnosis for addiction can actually change the way your subconscious thinks – for good
Drug addiction hypnosis is so effective because it re-programs your subconscious. During drug addiction hypnosis, we can help train your subconscious to view drugs as disgusting, unhealthy, or something equally unpleasant. If your subconscious mind believes that drugs are unsavory, it won’t crave them anymore. Additionally, if your subconscious has no desire to do drugs, your cravings can disappear.
That’s why hypnosis is a permanent technique. Once re-programmed, your subconscious’ contempt for drugs will likely not wear off.
Addiction hypnosis can replace taking drugs with other, healthier behaviors
Unlike “traditional” treatments, hypnosis for addiction doesn’t depend on willpower. Instead of a “white-knuckle” approach, hypnosis can actually train your subconscious to crave other things besides drugs.
Let’s say you use drugs when you’re stressed out or depressed. During drug addiction hypnosis, we can tell your subconscious to crave going for a walk when you’re stressed out or to crave taking a hot bath when you’re depressed. That way, you’re still dealing with your emotions; you’re just doing it in a healthy, more productive way.
If your subconscious can use other things to cope with the emotions and bumps in the road, you won’t need drugs anymore!
Hypnosis is a natural state, that when achieved, allows your hypnotist to access your subconscious mind. When you watch a movie, read a book, or focus on a project at work and lose track of time, you are experiencing hypnosis. Once a client is guided into hypnosis, we at the NY Hypnosis Institute can then give positive suggestions directly to the subconscious mind.
In some cases, something in your past is to blame. However, it’s not uncommon for the subconscious mind to blow things out of proportion, so you may not even remember the past event that has led to your current addiction!
During a New York Hypnosis overcome drug addiction hypnosis session, you can identify the event from your past that has been blown out of proportion. Your hypnotist can then reframe the way your subconscious mind perceives that event, allowing the addiction to be released. Essentially your hypnotist will teach your subconscious mind that those negative experiences from your past no longer need to impact you in a negative way.
We will identify the feelings and triggers you experience so that the suggestions given to your subconscious mind will be tailored to your specific challenge. With the combination of regression and suggestions the addiction can be eliminated in just a few sessions.
A New York Hypnosis Overcome Drug Addiction Hypnosis session can retrain your mind to:
•Create an Aversion to Drugs
•Enhance the Appeal of a Healthy Substitute for Drugs
•Improve Your Ability to Overcome Stress
•Develop New Lifestyle Changes
•Minimize the Importance of Drugs Related to the Way You Feel
