What is addiction therapy?


At First Step Recovery, we treat alcoholism and drug addiction as diseases. Like other chronic diseases, such as diabetes and some forms of heart disease, Substance Abuse Disorders have a well-defined and predictable course of development, as well as a common set of symptoms.
