ADDICTION


“Women come into recovery with more guilt and shame than their male counterparts, and many feel that they do not even deserve treatment. Denial becomes a major impediment to treatment, as often, those who should be supportive of a woman will instead blame her...”

 ~ from the article entitled Women in Treatment by R. Aydelotte
in the 1991 publication, Employee Assistance

    The path to drug addiction begins with the act of taking drugs. Over time, a person's ability to choose not to take drugs is compromised. This in large part is a result of the effects of prolonged drug use on brain functioning, and thus on behavior. Addiction, therefore, is characterized by compulsive, drug craving, seeking, and use that persists even in the face of negative consequences.
