Addiction represents a pervasive and disruptive force in the individual's ability to lead a healthy and balanced life.

Addiction or substance use disorder is a complex and challenging condition that revolves around an individual’s profound struggle to regulate and control the consumption of a compulsive substance. This persistent pattern persists despite the recognition of its detrimental impact on physical health, mental well-being, and overall quality of life. The compelling nature of addiction often overrides rational decision-making, leading to a cycle of dependency that is difficult to break.
