Approximately 1 in every 10 Americans struggle with addiction. It’s a complex disease, often chronic in nature, which affects the functioning of the brain and body. It also causes serious damage to families, relationships, schools, workplaces, and neighborhoods. The most common symptoms of addiction are severe loss of control, continued use despite serious consequences, preoccupation with using, failed attempts to quit, as well as tolerance and withdrawal. Thankfully, addiction can be effectively prevented, treated and managed by healthcare professionals in combination with family or peer support.
