Treatment

"Treatment must understand that there is a predisposition in some to abuse alcohol or drugs but also understand that this alone does not make an alcoholic or addict. In my opinion, what we carry inside of us emotionally impacts the intensity and duration of the addiction more than the predisposition. Just like athletic genes don't make an athlete, intelligence genes don't make a scholar and a genetic disability doesn't inhibit some from achieving, similarly a predisposition to abuse alcohol or drugs doesn't make an alcoholic or addict." - Recovery's Heart
