Bradford Health Services – Drug Addiction
While the path to drug addiction begins with the voluntary act of taking drugs, in time,with repeated use, many people lose the ability to choose. The addicted person can become focused on seeking and consuming drugs to the exclusion of everything else.
Addiction is a brain disease that affects the brain in many ways, including reward and motivation, learning and memory, and inhibitory control over behavior.
Drug abuse and addiction can disrupt many aspects of an individual’s life. Effective treatment programs use various components to address a particular aspect of the illness and its consequences. Addiction treatment and 12-Step Programs can help individuals stop using drugs, maintain a drug-free lifestyle, and improve social and behavior interactions in the family, at work, and in society.
Addiction is a chronic disease and generally people cannot simply stop using drugs for a few days and be magically cured. Most patients require sustained therapy or long-term care to achieve recovery.
