APA (edition "APA 7"), Social Sciences
Addiction is a disease of the mind, a disease of obsession, and a disease of isolation. The role of a particular substance, whether it is alcohol, opiates, marijuana, gambling, food, or sex, is merely the symptom of the disease, not the disease itself. Any substance has the potential to be abused due to the addiction disease itself. Many naively believe that merely removing the substance from the addicted person will "cure them." If the disease of addiction were that simple, this disease would not be a rampant social problem."The idea of addiction being a neurological disorder is critical to understanding its development and the recovery process" (Recovery Connection, n. d.). There are a variety of reasons and opportunities that support people with addiction seeking help. Whether from internal turmoil and…

socw 6103 week 7 discussion 1

APA (edition "APA 7"), Social Sciences
Addiction has many consequences. Often these consequences result in a negative impact on an individual's life. Yet many people suffering from addiction are contributing members of society who are adept at hiding the effects of their addiction from family, friends, and co-workers.To understand how this is possible, it is important to understand the idea of internal consequences, or impacts. Internal consequences are negative impacts that are not visible. These consequences are often connected to internal suffering and may be difficult for others to identify unless expressed by the individual. As a result, they are much easier to keep hidden. Does every person feel some level of internal consequences due to their addiction? Treatment may provide an opportunity for individuals to explore their internal conflicts and the impact that they have…
