Aside from the staggering overdose numbers, individuals struggling under the weight of this illness are likely to develop other physical and mental health issues, and are more prone to accidents. The destructive impact of this heart wrenching disease has ramifications for the suffering individuals, families, the healthcare system, schools, the economy, criminal justice and society as a whole. As stated, drug addiction, or SUD, does not only affect the person battling the disorder. Addiction is a family disease that tears loved ones apart.

It is estimated that over 20 million Americans over the age of 12 struggle with addiction to a alcohol and/or drugs, and this number excludes tobacco. Those who suffer from addiction are bodily and mentally unlike from most other people, meaning they react differently to drugs and alcohol. Those who suffer from addiction have an intense craving, triggered when these substances enter the body, making it difficult, sometimes impossible, for the person to stop once they start. These individuals also suffer from a mental obsession, which causes them to use compulsively, without regard to the consequences and despite the problems that it may be causing. It is not a matter of willpower. Addiction is classified as a disease by the American Medical Association (AMA). The reality is that alcoholics suffer from a chronic disease of the mind and an addiction treatment center can help the alcoholic to recover. Get Help Now! Call 844.430.4357
One common characteristic of the disease of addiction is that the suffering individuals are often unable to see the problem, or comprehend its significance. That is the cunning and baffling nature of the illness. The disease wants the addict or alcoholic to believe that the problem not exist. Unfortunately, a common belief or misconception is that the addict has to lose a job, a spouse and support of loved ones, go to jail or endure serious consequences before they are ready for help. This not the case. If life has started to become difficult or unmanageable, it does not have to be that way. Addiction treatment in at Ebb Tide Treatment Centers can be an effective solution to the problem.
