Is addiction a disease?
According to the American Society of Addiction Medicine, the American Medical Association, and most other medical associations, addiction is a disorder and disease of the brain and body. It involves the compulsive use of substances despite the consequences. Addiction disrupts the regions of the brain that are responsible for reward, motivation, judgement, memory, and learning, and it damages certain body systems too. It can also be disruptive to relationships, education, work, and communities.
Diseases like heart disease are caused and complicated by a combination of behavioral, environmental, and biological factors, and so is addiction. In fact, genetics is a major factor in addiction. If addiction is left untreated, it can cause other physical and mental health disorders and even become disabling and life threatening.
What percentage of the population are addicted to drugs? Are people addicted to alcohol?
Addiction to drugs is very common in the U.S., but so is addiction to alcohol. In fact, about 21 million Americans have at least one kind of addiction. That statistic might surprise you, and so might the statistic that only 10% of these people receive treatment. In Ohio alone, about 5,000 people die from opioid overdose each year.
Addiction kills many thousands of Americans each year and impacts millions of lives. If you’re struggling with addiction or the effects of a loved one’s addiction on your life, then you’ll be able to find long-term care and counselling here at MedSave Clinic.
What is the meaning of substance abuse?
Many people aren’t quite sure whether they or a loved one could be addicted to or abusing drugs, so they don’t realize they should get professional care. Substance abuse could be defined as the excessive and harmful use of an addictive substance such as drugs or alcohol. Excessive use can mean overindulgence or even dependence. The mood-altering effects of an addictive substance can be very powerful for people, and this can become addictive.
There are many ways for an addiction/behavioral professional to determine whether a patient is suffering from an addiction. We have these kinds of professionals here at our clinic. They can provide a number of treatments too, such as behavioural counselling, psychiatry, and various drug/alcohol addiction treatments. If you know or suspect you or a loved one has an addiction or related brain disorder/disease, then reach out to us today.
