Alcoholism Rehab Helena MT

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.

It's not that simple, to just "not drink". That doesn't solve the problem. It is, however, the alcoholic's responsibility to get help.

Some people have more of an addictive nature than others. Alcoholism is hereditary; passed on from generation to generation, much like heart disease.
