Frequently Asked Questions

What is addiction?

Addiction is a chronic, complex brain disease. And it’s progressive, meaning without treatment, addiction will almost certainly get worse with time. Addiction damages a person’s physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health and well-being. It hijacks key areas of the brain, distorting perceptions and motives, resulting in destructive, compulsive behavior.

What causes addiction?

No single cause has been found, yet research shows addiction is the result of multiple contributing factors, such as genetics, environment, mental health, trauma and even the developmental stage of the individual.

How do you cure an addiction?

We don’t have a cure for addiction. However, like diabetes, heart disease, asthma, and other chronic diseases, we do know how to treat it. We’ll help you manage the disease of addiction and create positive habits for your recovery. Learn more about the specialized treatment and support that Reach can provide for you and your family.

What can I do if my family member is struggling with addiction?

Addiction is a disease that affects everyone, not just the person with the disease. Relationships are often damaged and trust is destroyed. If you have a loved one struggling with addiction, even if they are not currently in treatment, Reach provides a variety of services tailored to your needs.
