Wisconsin Voices for Recovery Post: Addiction: It’s Not a Real Disease?

Imagine an ad that reads:

“David was experiencing anxiety, depression, lack of sleep, and morning shakes. When medications and attempting to moderate proved less and less effective, David’s primary care provider referred him to a Board-Certified Addictionologist. Now David is alcohol free and his life and health are back to normal.”

This is not much different from ads that I see for other diseases, such as hypertension—yet I don’t perceive such an ad appearing in real-life any time soon.

Why not?  Read the rest of Addiction: It’s Not a Real Disease? at Wisconsin Voices for Recovery.
