What is addiction medicine?

Addiction Medicine is a specialty of healthcare that deals with managing problems arising from alcohol and drug use, including cocaine, methamphetamine, heroin, nicotine, LSD, PCP, inhalants, and marijuana.

Alcohol, methamphetamine or narcotic use can become problematic and lead to severe deterioration in quality of life and relationships and ability to function.

Addictions are treatable disorders, and the prognosis for them is actually very good, with adequate treatment.
