There’s drug abuse and alcohol abuse… there’s a drug intervention and a substance abuse intervention… BUT… what is the difference between drug addiction and substance abuse?

Almost all the people are in the assumption that addiction is majorly overuse of the drug and alcohol and an addict is a person who tends to use more of it. Based on research, addiction is not a free choice. It is not like the normal drug usage.

The National Academy of Sciences’ Institute of Medicine, the American Psychiatric Association, and the American Medical Association all define this state of driven, compulsive use as the essence of addiction.

Someone who uses the drugs will have to suffer from the worst consequences face by the addict but it may stop when the consequences become worst. If they do, hustle up and enter a luxury residential substance abuse treatment center in Malibu, CA.
