Addiction is a condition defined by the compulsive need for or abuse of a mind-altering substance, resulting in physical or psychological dependence. Addiction is a primary disease and not the result of another problem, like a breakup, job or friend. This condition manifests in several forms of maladaptive behavior where a person will do anything to feed their habit. People will neglect any or all other obligations whether it be work, school, their family or their friends. Addiction is also progressive. If left untreated, it will get worse and could be potentially fatal. Although there is no cure, it can be treated.

It is important to recognize that the cause of addiction is not a search for pleasure and it has nothing to do with one’s morality or strength of character. It can be attributed to the way the brain becomes wired. Recovery is needed to re-balance the brain’s chemicals and adjust emotionally and spiritually to a life of abstinence.
