Many people think quitting alcohol or other drugs is a question of willpower. This is not true. There are treatments that can help.
Don’t Let Stigma Keep You From Help
The stigma of substance use disorder is powerfully negative. It results in blaming, lowered self-esteem, social isolation, problematic relationships, and most importantly, it becomes a barrier to seeking help. Stigma can perpetuate addiction. But recovery is possible. It happens every day, one day at a time.
Acceptance and Hope
There’s always hope. No matter how dim the situation may be, if one does the work change is possible. Lives do get better. Hear about the importance of acceptance and hope from those who’ve been there.
Addiction Myths and Facts
Don’t let myths about addiction keep you or a loved one from getting help. Those who have faced their addiction share their personal experiences and debunk common myths such as "addiction is a choice" or "addiction happens only to people with problems."
