Understanding Addiction

Understanding Addiction & Substance Abuse Recovery

The fight to regain control of the life that addiction has taken a hold of can truly be one the biggest struggles that an individual can face with during his or her lifetime. Individuals who are addicted to opioids such as prescription painkillers or heroin can quickly find that every aspect of their lives is controlled by their addictive behaviors. Deterioration in one’s career due to poor performance at work, failed relationships, and legal issues all become a reality for those trapped in the dangerous cycle of opioid abuse. Additionally, individuals who are addicted to opioids often experience numerous health hazards linked to their abuse of these substances. Unfortunately the risk for fatality due to overdose increases the longer that an individual waits to receive treatment.
