NewStart Addiction Treatment

Substance dependence is a chronic illness. Various substances, including alcohol, illicit drugs, prescription medications, and even some over-the-counter medicines may lead to addictions that affect the brain and change behavior.

Addiction affects not only the individual experiencing the addition, but entire families. It can leave all involved feeling helpless and hopeless.
