The Disease of Addiction:
Traditionally people have viewed addiction as a moral failing, or a personal weakness. Nothing could be further from the truth. Scientific evidence clearly proves that addiction is a chronic disease, similar to diabetes or schizophrenia. It can affect anyone, from any culture or economic background and has devastating effects on the individual and their family.
An Overview of Treatment:
Traditionally, people have expected to be able to “just quit”. Although many people may believe this approach to be the best option, scientific evidence clearly demonstrates that this is not the case.
Current evidence states that Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) with Masters level therapeutic intervention has a much higher success rate, resulting in vastly improved quality of life.
Medical Care Clinic has chosen to provide this type of multi-disciplinary approach to treatment.
