Helping someone with an addiction to recover is one of the greatest things a recovering addict can do for someone else. While talking and pleading with an addict to get help usually seems like wasted breath, it can also be the catalyst of more pain. Getting educated on their addiction and on the mindset of an addict will help you to help them. We also wanted to go beyond providing the typical addiction information for alcohol & drug abuse by offering resources not generally found on other websites. Although alcohol & drugs are the most abused substances, there are many more addictions that plaque the human race. As with the growth of the internet over the past 10 years, so too has grown online gambling, online shopping and many sex related addictions. We developed AddictionDiscussion.com with this in mind: Only an educated, healthy and strong person can take these steps with an addict in order to point them in the direction of recovery.
