Did you know that only one in ten people who have a problem with alcohol or drugs get help to control your addiction?
Many think they can stop drinking or doing drugs when they want. But often when the person intends to leave his service is no longer able to do so. What happens is that long-term alcohol or drugs may change the functions of mind and body of the person and make the consumption is uncontrollable and that the person feel sick if you do not drink alcohol or take drugs.
Addiction is a disease, a serious health problem, like diabetes or asthma. This is a health condition for which treatment is needed.
Sometimes people think they first have to “hit bottom” or as we say in English, “hit rock bottom,” but not true. You do not have to lose everything before taking the first step. The first steps are often the most difficult, but when it comes to addiction, you can not wait. Educate yourself on addiction and resources available is the first step. And there are many services to help you through the recovery process.
