Alcohol addiction is a chronic disease identified by uncontrolled drinking and dependence on alcohol. Those addicted to alcohol often use it to cope with the stresses of life or mental health issues. Breaking the cycle of alcohol addiction can be very difficult, but is possible with the right treatment program.

The alcohol addiction blogs will focus on all things related to alcohol and its abuse. There will be a variety of resources available for individuals suffering from alcohol addiction. There will also be many resources available for friends and family members that are looking to understand the disease of addiction that their loved one is dealing with.

The Northbound Treatment blogs will often contain a blend of many different viewpoints. Therefore, it is not recommended to be used as professional medical advice. If you believe that you or someone you love is suffering from substance abuse or mental illness, you should speak with your doctor.  However, if you do not have a doctor, we can help offer you recommendations based on your own personal situation.
