Addictions and Recovery

Drunk man

When you’re stuck in the cycle of addiction, recovery can seem out of reach. But change is possible with the right treatment and support, and by making lifestyle changes that address your addiction's root cause.

It takes courage and strength to face up to any type of addiction, whether it’s alcohol, drugs, nicotine, gambling, the internet, or self-injury. But no matter how powerless you feel, there is hope and help available.

Recovery is a process, and there’s bound to be some bumps in the road. Don’t give up, even if you’ve tried and failed before.
