Treating the disease of addiction

Addiction is a chronic, often relapsing brain disease that causes compulsive drug seeking and use, despite harmful consequences to the addicted individual and to those around him or her. Addiction to drugs and alcohol causes the chemistry in the brain to change over time, altering an addicted person’s self-control and hampering his or her ability to resist intense impulses to take drugs.

Many people don’t think addiction is a disease, but instead merely a choice to continue to drink or use drugs.  
But the reality is, Addiction has been classified as a true disease, just like cancer and diabetes, and should be treated as such:
