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 a substance use disorder (SUD) and lead productive lives. The most severe SUDs are often referred to as addictions.

Addiction is characterized by drug-seeking behavior and use that is compulsive, and almost impossible to control on willpower 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, 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.

Addiction Is A Chronic Health Condition That Is Treatable

As with other chronic health conditions, the good news is that a substance use disorder is a treatable condition. Help and support can be found through, rehabs, cognative behavorial therapy, group and/or private counseling, faith-based programspeer-to-peer support, sober living and 12 step programs, such as NA or AA, and so much more.

 

Never in the history of - recovery - have addicts or alcoholics had so many recovery options available. You don't have to do this alone, help is available.
