Substance Addiction

Substance addiction is the usually what most people think of when they begin to think about an individual dealing with the consequences of addiction. From alcohol to methamphetamine, understanding what the substance does to your brain, and your body, could be the deciding factor in your journey of recovery.

Whether you are working a harm reduction model, or an abstinence approach, developing a decent understanding of why an individual does what they do is important.  In most cases, substance addiction hijacks the brain of the user and, in essence, removes the choice to use away from the logical thought process involved in executive thinking.
