There are many kinds of addictions. Some people are addicted to drugs or alcohol. Others are addicted to gambling, food, pornography, or playing games on the Internet. What addictions have in common is their tendency to take over a person's life. Once substance use or behaviors rise to the level of addiction, they can be very difficult to manage. Treatment and recovery can be extremely challenging and often expensive. But there is hope. In spite of the difficulty, people can and do recover from addictions. If you or someone you care about is struggling with addictions, recovery is possible!
