Chronic Care

Addiction Is A Chronic Disease

Even though the American Medical Association classified addiction as a chronic disease more than 50 years ago, segments of society and the healthcare community continue to debate the topic. Despite medical consensus and the fact that individuals addicted to drugs and alcohol share many characteristics with people suffering from other chronic illnesses such as diabetes and hypertension. addicts and alcoholics rarely receive the continued support and care necessary for long-term recovery.

5 Characteristics Addiction Shares with Other Chronic Diseases

  1. Strongly associated with family history and genetics
  2. Diagnosable
  3. Influenced by behavior
  4. High risk of disability or even death
  5. Can be treated effectively, but there are no cures
