Diseases of Addiction
Contrary to what most may think, addiction is not a lack of self-control. It has been scientifically proven to be a complex chronic condition with aspects of both impulse control and compulsive disorders. Research indicates that dysfunction in the brain’s cortical regions significantly affects cognitive regulatory process, which denies someone who suffers from addiction the normal regulatory responses that keep them from engaging in self-destructive behavior.
