Addiction - A Treatable Disease
   
Drug addiction - which includes alcoholism - is a chronic, progressive, and potentially fatal disease. Addiction is not a sign of weakness or immorality, nor is it an indication of lack of intelligence.
With the proper treatment, people can recover from addiction.

Breaking the cycle of addiction is difficult, but not impossible. Treatment for addiction helps people confront the physical, psychological, emotional, and social problems caused or exacerbated by their addiction. Treatment provides individuals with structure, support, education, and the practical tools they need to change their lives. The goal of treatment is to help clients resume productive and successful lives without the use of alcohol or other mood-altering substances.

Blue Ridge First Step offers a comprehensive program designed to help clients and their families and loved ones through the treatment process.
