All About Addiction Treatment
Treatment for drug addiction has a long history going back 100's of years. It has only been in recent years that it has been seen for what it really is - a disease of the brain. Some say that since some people can "just quit" without any help, and it is simply a matter of will power. That arguement does not stand up in research. Once a person starts using drugs regularly, their mind begins to change, significantly. It becomes a matter of chemistry rather than moral fiber. Treatment consists of detox and then introducing the client to AA/NA.
