Addiction is a primary, chronic disease of brain reward, motivation, memory and related circuitry. Dysfunction in these circuits leads to characteristic biological, psychological, social and spiritual manifestations. This is reflected in an individual pathologically pursuing reward and/or relief by substance use and other behaviors. Addiction is characterized by inability to consistently abstain, impairment in behavioral control, craving, diminished recognition of significant problems with one’s behaviors and interpersonal relationships, and a dysfunctional emotional response. Like other chronic diseases, addiction often involves cycles of relapse and remission. Without treatment or engagement in recovery activities, addiction is progressive and can result in disability or premature death.
We offer treatment to persons with problems due to alcohol, tobacco and other drug misuse, providing out-patient consultations, in-patient care and through out-reach clinics. Specialized and individually tailored care is offered by a multi-disciplinary team of psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, occupational therapist and nurses experienced in addiction medicine.
