Addiction FAQs

Why is addiction so hard to beat without help?

Addiction is a complex disease that usually requires medical and behavioral help to manage it. When you use substances like drugs and alcohol, your brain chemistry changes over time. Drugs and alcohol begin to impact chemical and nervous system balances. This essentially rewires your brain to rely on a particular substance to function. The brain tries to get you to do whatever you need to get the substances it thinks you need to survive. But, if you stop taking drugs or alcohol you can go into withdrawal as the brain is now dependent on substance abuse.

Why is addiction called a family disease?

When a person uses substances, it’s rarely just impacting them—it is also affecting their family members. It can also be a sign of unhealthy relationship patterns or codependent behaviors. When the family is involved in treatment, it can help repair damaged relationships and educate those involved on how they can support the recovery process in a healthy way.

What does a dual diagnosis mean?

A dual diagnosis is when a person lives with both substance use and mental health disorders. Many people with addictions have psychiatric issues contributing to their drug and alcohol abuse. A dual diagnosis is also known as co-occurring disorders or comorbidity.

Why shouldn’t I detox on my own?

Quitting a substance you’ve abused for a long time difficult, uncomfortable, and in certain instances, deadly. That’s why it’s crucial to undergo detox in a medical setting to ensure you’re as safe and as comfortable as possible during the detox process.
