Substance Abuse Treatment, Education and Prevention Services
Most of us have had a friend or relative with addiction disease. It hurts all of us yet we don’t like to talk about it. In our community we have had help for many years. STEPS has had an above average rate of success in treating this frustrating disease. The RISERS mission is to reduce the stigma that underlies the disease of addiction and to ensure that prevention, treatment and recovery services remain well funded and accessible. It is a cause that will benefit the entire community as well as the men of Noble House, the women of Beacon House and all the outpatient clients served by STEPS.
Addiction is a chronic brain disease that is more about the neurology of the brain rather than the outward manifestations of behavioral problems and poor choices, according to a group of addiction medicine professionals at the American Society of Addiction Medicine. Addiction is about brains - not alcohol, drugs, sex or gambling. It's about the underlying neurology of the brain, not about outward behavior.
Drug addiction is a complex brain disease. It is characterized by compulsive, at times uncontrollable, drug craving, seeking, and use that persist even in the face of extremely negative consequences.
Drug seeking becomes compulsive, in large part as a result of the effects of prolonged drug use on brain functioning and, thus, on behavior. For many people, drug addiction becomes chronic, with relapses possible even after long periods of abstinence.
