What is Addiction?

Addiction is a disease!

Addiction is a complex, chronic and progressive disease that, left untreated, will devastate your life. Decades of research has proven that addiction alters the brain through small but continual changes to its structure and function. The frontal cortex, which is associated with judgment and decision making, is significantly affected by substance abuse. Neurochemicals and brain circuits that are involved in reward, motivation, memory and inhibitory control are disrupted, making the drug cravings and compulsion to use that much more powerful.

So while the initial decision to use drugs may be a voluntary one, the eventual disease of drug addiction compels a person to continue to abuse drugs despite the many negative consequences associated with it.

The good news is that drug addiction, like other chronic diseases, can be successfully treated. At Active Recovery Solutions, we offer addiction treatment that gets to the underlying psychological and emotional issues at the root of your self-defeating behavior—and utilize modalities to counteract the neurophysiological effects of addiction—so you can regain control of your life.
