What is Recovery from Addiction?

Because addiction affects the mind, body and spirit, recovery is much more than just stopping the abuse of and/or dependence on a substance or activity.

Recovery is a process that will begin with identifying and eliminating the physical and psychological dependence. Treatment centers and recovery programs are designed to implement this process and can successfully help many people. Because addiction affects all areas of our lives, most programs provide individual, group and family support.

Since addiction is a chronic disease, it is never totally cured. All addictions are as unique as the individual and what works for one person may not work for another. Regardless of the type of treatment or program that helps get a person sober, an on-going program of recovery is essential to long term abstinence for most individuals.

More important than any other factor, the success of addiction recovery depends on the willingness and desire to change. Despite the odds and impossible obstacles, many addicts
attribute their ability to stay sober to the spiritual awakening they experienced as a result of working the 12 Steps.

12 Step Programs, originally developed by Alcoholics Anonymous, have helped millions of people get and stay sober.
