Alcoholism Rehab Clovis NM

Alcoholism is a disease. Many people don't have enough knowdledge about it to see it that way...instead they see it as a self-inflicted burden. People who don't have the understanding of the addiction tend to look down on others for this disease, because perhaps they think it is the choice of the alcoholic to have a drinking problem or not.

Some people have more of an addictive nature than others. Alcoholism is hereditary; passed on from generation to generation, much like heart disease. Alcholics suffer from an actual change in chemicals in their brain (like other addicts). It changes the way a person behaves, thinks, and reacts to situations...even when they are sober.
