The word addiction can evoke images of down-and-out folk, people not anything like you, right? Yet the stressful world we live in has brought addition onto our doorstep, and often into our homes.
No matter what the person’s age, gender, financial situation, job status, upbringing, spiritual beliefs, social standing, might be, addictions can affect anyone.
Addiction is a destructive disease, frequently accompanied by the symptom of denial; and that’s where family, friends and community are needed to support the person in their journey of healing. With dedication, recovery is possible.
In this edition we explore addictions and the role every person has in preventing and helping people heal from this disease.
