Using The Disease Model of Addiction At Drug & Alcohol Rehab In East Kilbride
Being addicted to something should not be seen as a personal failure, instead, you should accept addiction as a disease.
In medical terms, addiction is ‘considered a brain disorder, because it involves functional changes to brain circuits involved in reward, stress, and self-control.’(1)
In almost all senses it’s out of your control and not a choice. The stigma that exists around addiction, unfortunately, often stops people from seeking help.
Addiction over many years will alter your brain structure, pathways, and chemical makeup.
The cycle of addiction is so engrained because of the way it alters our brains that it’s incredibly hard to break out of.
The cycle of addiction can be categorised by cravings, compulsions, continuing to use your substance and being out of control.
The Disease Model of Addiction argues that fundamentally, addiction changes your brain structure it can be categorised as a disease.
