Hope and recovery
Addiction to opioids, stimulants and other medications or drugs has become alarmingly prevalent in our community over the last few years. Addiction is a chronic disease that alters pathways in the brain involved in reward, motivation and control. Though treatment is often a long and difficult process, untreated addictions can lead to further physical and mental health problems.
