Recovery IS possible with the right treatment, tools, and supports
Substance Use Disorder (SUD), also known as addiction, is defined as “a chronic, relapsing brain disease that is characterized by compulsive drug seeking and use, despite harmful consequences.” It is considered a brain disease because drugs change the brain; they change its structure and how it works. These brain changes can be long lasting and can lead to many negative, often self-destructive, behaviors.
However, SUD can be successfully treated when people are able to access the resources they need.
SMART Recovery is a self-help program, NOT a 12-step program. It offers a place where teens can get together virtually for support dealing with addiction to alcohol and other drugs.
