As we continue to read the headlines proclaiming the rise in opioid addiction, the latest overdose crisis, the newest street drug or the toll addiction has on the family and society one can begin to ask why. Why do people take a substance knowing that they could become addicted? Why are some people able to experiment and not become addicted whereas others are unable to? Are those who become addicted just not ‘strong enough’ or do not have enough ‘willpower’ to quit?
These and others are some of the questions that we will discuss during our journey through addiction.
