The Disease of Addiction
We believe addiction is a complex, chronic disease that affects both the brain and behavior. For some people, repeated use of alcohol and drugs (including nicotine in tobacco) affects the brain’s neurotransmitters, “rewiring” them until living in a state of addiction becomes normal and necessary.
Addiction bears many similarities to other chronic conditions, including diabetes, asthma and hypertension. All result from of a combination of genetic and environmental influences. Each affects individuals differently, must be treated for a lifetime and cannot be conquered alone.
That is why at Fairbanks, we use evidence-based programs across our continuum of care, so no matter where you or a loved one is in their journey, we offer proven methods to help.
