Addiction is a Disease
At New River Wellness Center, we understand that addiction is a disease that is both progressive and complex in nature. Dr. Wilson Compton, Director of Epidemiology at the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), states the following:
“Addiction is a disease. It’s a brain condition that involves compulsive use of a substance. Addiction is characterized by: (1) loss of control of substance use, (2) continued substance use despite adverse consequences, (3) tolerance and withdrawal, and (4) chronicity and relapse.
With this is mind, our treatment philosophy addresses the biological, psychological, social, and spiritual aspects of the individual in regards to treatment. We provide the emotional and medical support that is needed in order to treat the underlying genetic and environmental factors that influenced the development and manifestation of the addiction. Most importantly, our highly experienced staff help you and your family realize that addiction is not a moral problem or a choice. As stated earlier, drug and alcohol addiction is a disease in which can be treated.
