Overcoming Shopping Addiction “An Inside Job”

Sherry Gaba.

Social worker and addiction and recovery expert Sherry Gaba was recently featured in this article on shopping addiction in the Huffington Post.

Gaba, who is a National Association of Social Workers member, said overcoming shopping addiction is an “inside job” and those who suffer from it must first recognize they have a problem. She also offered tips on ending the addiction.

“When your life has become unmanageable and is out of control–that’s the mark of an addiction,” said Gaba, who provides behind-the-scenes support on VH1’s popular “Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew.”

SocialWorkersSpeak.org talked to Gaba about her role on “Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew.” To read that interview click here.
