The science of brain function tells us that addiction is a complex, chronic disease. For most people, the path to recovery is not easy — since there’s no short-term fix for a substance abuse problem and the risk of relapse is similar to other chronic diseases. You don’t have to struggle alone. Support is available to strengthen your efforts in overcoming addiction — in fact, millions of Americans are in long-term recovery today, regaining their health and reclaiming their lives.
This section includes articles to inspire, guide and support anyone in recovery from drug and alcohol addiction. Here you can find ways to ease drug cravings and prevent relapse with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and other evidence-based treatment strategies. You’ll also learn the importance of nurturing self-compassion, discover how to heal your addicted brain with optimal post-rehab nutrition, and much more to support your journey toward recovery.
