Here at Profound, we understand the despair that can come with addiction, and how lonely and isolated it can feel. Often the stigma surrounding addiction can cause addicts to keep their disease to themselves, and not seek help. But drug or alcohol abuse is just that, a chronic disease and not a moral failing. Remember, it’s not your fault, and you’re not alone. There are 21 million Americans who are in recovery from a substance use disorder. Drug addiction can affect anyone–regardless of background, education, or zip code. But there is hope. We’re here to help. We know how hopeless it can feel being in the throes of addiction, and you don’t have to do this alone.
