If you’re wondering exactly what is alcoholism, then you’re not alone. As a matter of fact, a surprising number of people don’t fully understand what it means to be and alcoholic. People often think that an alcoholic is a person who cannot handle their liquor, a notion which sometimes lead to the mistaken belief that it is a matter of choice or willpower. Some even think that that they can help the alcoholic control his or her drinking. There are countless misconceptions about alcoholism. In 1956, the American Medical Association (AMA) formerly classified alcoholism as a illness. The reality is that alcoholics suffer from a chronic disease of the mind and an addiction treatment center can help the alcoholic to recover.
At Ebb Tide Treatment Centers, our mission when it comes to addiction treatment is to help bridge the gap between treatment and recovery. What does that mean exactly?
