Alcohol & Drug Treatment
What Is Alcohol & Drug Treatment?
Alcohol use disorder is what doctors call it when you can’t control how much you drink and have problem with your emotions when you’re not drinking. Some people thinking the only way to deal with it is with willpower, as if it’s a problem they have to work through all on their own. But alcohol use disorder is actually considered a brain illness. Alcohol causes changes in your brain that make it hard to quit. Trying to tough it out on your own can be like trying to cure appendicitis with cheerful thoughts. It’s not enough. An important first step is to learn more about your treatments, and there are a lot to choose from.
