LWWW Well Talk – Understanding Addiction

Addiction is a chronic disease of the brain affecting the reward system, learning, stress, decision making, and self-control. It is not simply a choice or personal failing. This helps explain why individuals with addiction are unable to stop using drugs or alcohol despite negative consequences and why the risk of relapse persists long after discontinuing use. Effective treatment is available, including medications that reduce the risk of relapse to opioids or alcohol.
