If an alcoholic (or drug addict) is unwilling to seek help, is there any way the family or friends can get him or her into treatment?
Addiction is defined as a chronic, relapsing brain disease that is characterized by compulsive drug seeking and use despite harmful consequences.
Psychology is the study of human behavior and psychologists work to improve the quality of people’s lives by helping them to steer clear of maladaptive behaviors.
The road to recovery from addiction might seem like fixing broken glass, an enterprise that appears a futile exercise when there is little family support. Therapists and doctors all over the world emphasize the importance of family involvement for the rehabilitation of an afflicted member.
