Addiction is a disease. A disease of the brain that unfortunately can manifest in poor behavior while the brain is hijacked. Addiction is curable sometimes with medication, therapy and support. It is not a death sentence but it can be if a person does not get the right care that they need. It is not about willpower although people struggling with addiction issues are some of the strongest people out there. Yes, they need to find their inner fight to navigate this horrible disease but they may also need medication, support and adjusted treatment and care options to meet their personal needs.
