If you are ready to discuss treatment for yourself or a loved one, the Fairwinds admissions team is here to help.

Despite years of drug awareness programs and childhood education initiatives, millions of Americans still find themselves struggling with their own addictions or those of people they love. To stop substance abuse from destroying your relationships, career, health and, ultimately, your life, you must face it head on. While doing so, always remember you don’t have to fight the battle alone.

What is Drug Addiction?

Unfortunately, drug addiction is heavily stigmatized in our society. Sufferers are often dismissed as weak individuals with poor moral character. However, addiction is not a failure. It’s a chronic illness that affects the brain, pushing a person to continuously and compulsively abuse drugs, even if they’re well aware of the harmful consequences.

While initial drug use may start as a voluntary decision, repeated abuse over time can alter brain chemistry. These physiological changes diminish a person’s ability to make rational decisions, instilling in the brain a strong, sometimes irresistible impulse to continue taking drugs.
