Understanding the Disease of Addiction

What is Addiction?

Addiction is a powerful disease and complex condition that affects a person’s brain as well as their ability to control the intake of harmful substances. Substance abuse and mental health disorders affect people from all different backgrounds, at various different stages of life.

Addiction is a complex disease that can affect the brain as well as human behavior. Drug addiction can start with the experimental use of a recreational drug, however for some people the drug-use can become more frequent and develop into an addiction. Although treatable, addiction is not something to be taken lightly and if you find yourself or someone you know who is showing signs or symptoms of addiction, it is important to seek help and treatment at a rehabilitation center with therapists and trained professionals who can help you start the process of recovery. Addiction is treatable, however without the right treatment and care, it can be known as a ‘relapsing disease,’ or a return to the addictive behavior after an attempt to stop. The recovery process allows people to improve their health and wellness and live independent, addiction-free lives. The recovery process also allows those suffering from addiction to realize that each person is a unique individual who holds the ability to lead successful, fulfilling lives. 

At California Recovery Center, we are here to provide professional treatment to those suffering with addiction problems at any stage. Our substance abuse program in California is the answer for anyone who is suffering from substance abuse or addiction of any kind.

    How to Know If Someone is Addicted?

    Signs Someone is Abusing Drugs

    It can be difficult to identify someone suffering from a drug or alcohol problem without understanding the ins and outs of addiction, however there are many different physical and psychological signs to look out for. Some physical signs and symptoms of a drug or alcohol addiction can include bloodshot eyes, slurred speech, sudden fluctuation in weight, enlarged or shrunken pupils, changes in skin appearance, chemical odor on breath/clothing and poor personal hygiene. 

    Other signs of addiction that are more physiological and behavioral include changes or loss of interest in activities or hobbies, shifts in social circles, decreased participation in family events and activities, secretive behavior, self-isolation, neglecting responsibilities, dishonest behavior, mood swings, poor performance at work or school and sudden financial or legal issues. Identifying this behavior in a loved one can be alarming and upsetting, however it is important that if you are noticing this about someone around you then you should seek answers before trying to take matters into your own hands. There is a good chance that the person suffering from an addiction problem is either not aware that it’s a problem or is not ready to admit that they have a problem. 

    Our treatment center in Northern California has both specialists and resources available for people at any stage of their addiction, and our therapists are here to help patients understand their addiction in a way they did not understand it before. The hardest part of seeking help is admitting that there is a problem, and we can either build from there or help a patient get to the point of admitting that they have an addiction problem and need our help.

    Our Clients trust us.

    “Outstanding team of professionals, In depth counseling and support. Highly recommended!"
    Greg B.
    "I've been to a decent amount of rehabs and none come close to the level of care and support as you do here. The amount of clients is a max of 6 which allows for much more personal time with therapist and small group sizes makes it easier learn and ask questions. The food is phenomenal and all the staff genuinely care. I've been here almost 2 months and I don't want to leave. I am honestly learning to heal and love myself. Would give more stars if I could."
