About us

What is addiction?

People use drugs, alcohol and other activities for many reasons; to feel pleasure, to forget their problems, to help them relax. No one chooses to become an addict but for every addict, at one point or another, they can no longer make a choice about whether or not to use. The psychological and physical dependency on the substance or behavior overrides all logic. No matter how much they love their families and friends they will engage in behaviors that can destroy those relationships – they lie, steal, cheat and abuse themselves and others.
