Addiction
and Recovery

Help is Available

Researchers know more than ever about how drugs affect the brain and have found treatments that can help people recover from drug addiction and lead productive lives.

 

Addiction is characterized by drug seeking behavior and use that is compulsive, and almost impossible to control on will-power alone, despite repeated harmful consequences. 

Many people don't understand why or how other people become addicted to drugs.

 

They may mistakenly think that those who use drugs lack moral principles or willpower and that they could stop their drug use simply by choosing to. 

 

In reality, drug addiction is a complex disease, and quitting usually takes more than good intentions or a strong will.

 

Drugs change the brain in ways that make quitting hard, even for those who want to.
