Addiction is a primary, chronic disease of brain reward, motivation, memory and related circuitry. Dysfunction in these circuits leads to characteristic biological, psychological, social and spiritual manifestations. Addiction often involves cycles of relapse and remission”. Recovery refers to the ways in which persons with or affected by addiction tap resources within and beyond the self to move beyond experiencing these disorders to managing them and their residual effects to build full, meaningful lives in the community. It is regaining wholeness, connection to the community, and a purpose-filled life.
