Addiction Is A Disease
The American Medical Association (AMA) classified addiction as a disease in 1987. Treatment for the addiction must begin as soon as it is diagnosed, just as with any disease or illness, this is much easier said than done due to one of the most common symptoms of addiction being denial. This denial is what causes individuals to continue to delve deeper into an unmanageable addiction. Believing they can control their substance of use, even when it becomes clear that it is destroying their lives.
The unfortunate truth is that without the help they cannot and will not stop until the substance or behavior completely destroys their lives and/or kills them. This is preventable by reaching a “rock bottom” which is a catalyst for change. Unfortunately many experience their rock bottom too late. There is hope, however.
