How Science Helps Us Understand Addiction

The Science of AddictionWe want to make a terrific resource available to you.  This publication from the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) presents what current science has to say about substance abuse and addiction, with special focus on how substances affect the brain. The resource is entitled The Science of Addiction and is a free download from the NIDA web site. To download it, please follow this link.

After reviewing this publication, if you want to know more about substance addiction or to get help please call our office at (678) 893-5300 for an appointment.  If you are concerned about the health of a family member who may not want to get help for himself or herself, then ask about a Family Intervention.  There is a way to help persons who do not want help to take that step.
