These articles focus on the active disease of addiction when recovery hasn’t started or is just starting. Because all of our articles relate to substance abuse in some way, we use this category to specifically identify the active using and relapse stages of drug/alcohol abuse. Articles are aimed at either the addict directly or affected loved ones. The first step to recovery is admitting there is a problem, so these articles aim to educate about the different facets of the disease.
