This website presents information about drug addiction and alcoholism. It gives an overview of some of the treatment methods used to help overcome addiction and discusses understandings of addiction recovery that are present in academic and scientific research on the subject. Many people have found a new life using these recovery methods. However, there are many medical issues that the long-term use of drugs and alcohol can cause in an individual. Before you begin any treatment protocol on your own, I strongly encourage you to see a medical doctor to determine how you can best be physically and emotionally supported through your drug or alcohol detox. The information found on this website is not a substitute for receiving proper treatment from physicians, psychologists, and spiritual advisors.
