Addiction is commonly believed to be a concern for teens or younger adults. Unfortunately, addiction doesn’t have an age or socioeconomic victim of choice. It crosses all ages, socioeconomic levels, gender and race. As it does so, older adults are commonly identified as being addicted to drugs and/or alcohol.
Often addiction is a symptom of a deeper problem. To offer the best treatment option for individuals, their specific issues must be understood and addressed. A cookie cutter approach to addiction treatment just doesn’t work.
