Addiction is a confounding disease for those who are entrapped in it and equally distressing for family members and friends. The problem can be daunting, especially when there is no awareness of where to go for help.
Addiction or chemical dependency is a complex brain disease. Addiction has the same effect, irrespective of the preferred substance: opiates, cocaine, marijuana, heroin, amphetamines, prescription medication, or any combination.
Prolonged use of the addictive substance leads to tolerance, physical dependence, and uncontrollable craving, which leads to social, family, and health problems. Fortunately, there are solutions.
Alliant Treatment Center (ATC) can help individuals dealing with this disease. ATC addresses different aspects of dependency, provides services and resources as needed.
