Addiction: A renewed urgency for seeking and providing treatment

HOUSTON, TEXAS (July12, 2018)

“Addiction is a brain disease that manifests itself physically, behaviorally, and socially, touching all age groups, education levels, professions, and income levels,” said Dr. Clay Brown, Medical Director of Memorial Hermann Prevention & Recovery Center. “Addiction does not discriminate, and it is not uncommon. Approximately 1 in 7 of 40 million Americans aged 12 and older have addictions to nicotine, alcohol, or other drugs – more than heart disease, diabetes, or cancer.”
