Understanding Drug and Alcohol Addiction

Recovery Begins with Understanding Drug and Alcohol Addiction.

Drug and alcohol addictions are common.  Some people use alcohol or other substances and can stop when they want.  For others, the need for the substance becomes compulsive and can result in dangerous behaviors.  This is given a formal diagnosis of substance use disorder, and people with substance use disorder most often need professional help to stop using the substance and begin recovery.

Sometimes denial is shown by placing blame on others for the negative consequences of drug and alcohol addiction.  The cop that gave them a ticket was just trying to make his quota before quitting time.  Missing a family event was due to the boss making them work late.  The fall down the stairs was because the rug made them trip.

No one wants to be addicted to drugs or alcohol.

This makes them believe that addiction recovery is not possible.

Non-12 step holistic drug and alcohol treatment can help people understand their addiction, and overcome it.

Recovery is possible.  Professional drug and alcohol treatment can help people understand their addiction and overcome it, helping them rediscover life without the dependence on their substance.  People can rediscover freedom, without the need to always have their substance available; rebuild relationships and reestablish trust with others and replace shame and guilt with pride and self-confidence.
