Knowledge is Power

As I write in The Last Stop's Epilogue, addiction starts with a choice and may well cause disease and death. Addiction takes time and follows a predictive process. Addiction causes loss of control after continual usage. An addict will not stop using their drug of choice until the reward for not using becomes greater than the reward for using. The quicker addiction is recognized and addressed, the better chance of preventing what Dave called "full on addiction."

Knowledge is power when coping with an addicted loved one. I recently discovered "The Phoenix Spirit." A bi-monthly publication that focuses on mental health, addiction, treatment, and recovery. Check it out!
