What Is Addiction?

At Naveen Kiran Rehab, we believe that just like diabetes or asthma, addiction is also a chronic medical disease that causes dramatic changes in the behaviour and personality of a person. Addictions have many forms determined by several factors, such as genetics, environment, childhood traumas, brain functionality, depression, and more.

Addiction is not an overnight problem. It inclines gradually overtime with continual substance use. The family members often do not recognize the change in behaviour or emotional damage of an addict until the condition gets out of control.
