Addiction Medicine Institute is extremely important for the public to understand that addiction is a brain disease and absolutely not a lack of will power! Nobody wants to be an addict. The statistics on relapse is high, which is why something more needs to be done to curb the epidemic.
More research, new technologies and tests are needed and this can’t happen without funding and donations. Sadly because of the stigma surrounding addiction, the funds aren’t there to cover the extensive research that the Addiction Medicine Institute needs.
