Substance abuse disorders, alcoholism, and addiction have become a public health crisis in the United States. Although most people can become chemically addicted to a substance, there are certain risk factors (such as family history) that increase the likelihood of developing an addiction.

As a progressive condition, addiction requires treatment; without treatment, the symptoms get worse over time. Relapsing happens when a person in recovery begins using alcohol or drugs after a sustained abstinence period, and recovery is part of the recovery process.
