Alcohol addiction and drug addiction are complex diseases that affect the brain, alter behavior, and influence one’s physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing. Once someone has developed a dependency, tolerance, or addiction to alcohol or drugs, they are often unable to stop abusing the substance despite the negative consequences.
At Carolina Recovery Solutions, we understand that anyone can become addicted to a harmful substance. When it comes to addiction, there is no bias. Regardless of how alcohol or drug use begins, changes in brain functioning over time can make it nearly impossible to stop the cycle of abuse without professional help. We offer a range of proven treatments and therapies that help those struggling with alcohol and drug abuse effectively navigate the road to recovery. Our goal is to provide you with the tools, resources, and support you need to achieve long-term sobriety.
Addictive substances, such as alcohol, drugs, and even prescription medications, affect the brain’s reward center. When ingested, these substances cause a flooding of dopamine, or the “feel-good” chemical in the brain that creates the feeling of happiness, wellbeing, and euphoria. Over time, more and more of the substance is needed to achieve this same “rush,” or high. This leads to tolerance, which can quickly develop into dependency and addiction.
There is no single factor that can predict whether an individual will become addicted to a substance. Scientific studies have shown that a mix of factors—including individual biology, genes, personal history, trauma, mental health, environment, and more—all impact a person’s susceptibility to abusing alcohol and/or drugs. For many, what begins as experimentation or even medical treatment can quickly spiral out of control. By the time someone recognizes that they or someone they love may have a problem with alcohol or drugs, the substance use disorder has typically taken hold. At this point, professional treatment is nearly always necessary.
