Addiction Treatment Programs for Drug & Alcohol Abuse
Addiction is a serious condition that results when an individual uses a substance like alcohol, cocaine, or any other form of drug. Addiction can also be the result of getting obsessively involved in activities such as sex, gambling, or shopping. What starts as pleasurable can become compulsive.
These behaviors can grow to interfere with day-to-day responsibilities such as work, personal care, or maintaining relationships. Those who usually develop an addiction may not be aware that their behavior is out of control. Often it will cause a problem not only for themselves but for others as well.
