Understanding Drug Addiction Treatment Means Treating It As A Disease

Surrounding the difficulty in understanding addiction is perhaps the most harmful stigma any disease has faced. Many attribute substance abuse and chronic cases of addiction as a willful choice of those suffering from it. Extensive research annihilates this notion and attributes addiction as both a physical and psychological disease, with roots in one’s genetic lineage.

    “My friends and relatives were in a difficult spot to see me suffering every single time they met me. The addiction to drugs had made me a weak person, but ARN was the place which understood my fears and troubles. The psychologists and counsellors very well brought out that fear from my mind, and gave me the gift to be open and free.”

Addiction is no more a choice than cancer is.

Without understanding this fundamental principle, one cannot only successfully recover from addiction, but will not take the steps to understanding why the condition has been allowed to manifest. This crux of psychological (and perhaps physical) unrest holds the key to treating the condition, allowing the development of new skills to replace harmful behaviors.
Conversely, those on the outside will continue to devalue the condition. Understanding addiction is critical to avoid this.
It is not only those on the outside looking in who refuse to credit addiction as a medical condition; those in the midst of the disorder are sometimes in the most pointed denial.
