What is addiction?

The stigma of addiction comes from it being perceived as a moral failing, a choice. Addiction is not a choice, sobriety is. Addiction is a disease and addicts receive immense judgement instead of sympathy. Addiction does not discriminate and no one plans on becoming addicted. PRC Recovery will help you understand the disease of addiction and help you to find a new way to live, free from substance abuse and dependence.
