 Alcoholism and Alcohol Rehab Alcoholism is a serious disease and the problem is growing. The National Council On Alcoholism And Drug Dependence statistics reveal that approximately 18 million Americans suffer from alcohol abuse.\

The main objective of drug rehab programs is to free you from the bondage of drug abuse and alcoholism. These programs help you to discover newer ways to live without the use of drugs and/or alcohol.

 

Drug addiction is defined as "the compulsive use of psychoactive drugs, to the point where the user has no effective choice but to continue use."
