The hope is that you can gain a better understanding of the disease of addiction and begin the journey to better health and emotional wellness.
Addictive, problem drinking is not a character flaw or life choice. It is a debilitating disease that affects millions of people around the world – men, women and children.
Addiction can be found in different countries, religions, ethnicity, education levels and socioeconomic status. Addiction is commonly viewed as a brain disease because of the way that it impacts the regular functioning of your brain. These changes contribute to the challenges often experienced during a person’s recovery. As the disease advances, it takes over the body and destroys the physical and mental health of the drinker, and may lead to premature death.
