Addiction to drugs and alcohol affect millions of people and their families every year. Yet, they often go undiagnosed by healthcare professionals. This results in an estimated annual combined healthcare cost, lost productivity, and crime of $365 billion.
Released for Recovery Month 2015, the National Council Magazine examines trends, personal stories and viewpoints across the spectrum of addiction prevention, treatment and recovery.
Feel free to share our infographics that show appropriate person first language and addictions’ connection to both body and brain.
