"Alcohol and drug addiction is a chronic disease with a strong genetic disposition." " In addition, it is a brain disease."/ "Addiction is a medical condition, not a moral failing." "While there is a role for behavioral and congnitive counseling in addiction treatment, a program based purely on psychological therapy or the 12-step philosophy is inadequate for treating a disease with genetic and physiological roots."
