Substance use disorder and alcohol use disorder are two leading preventable causes of premature death, disease, and disability in Massachusetts and across the globe. Anyone can develop a chemical dependency given the right combination of genetics, family history, and trauma. But not everyone does. Instead of lamenting the hand you were dealt, the 12-step program can help you understand it and move beyond it.
Being predisposed to developing substance use disorder does not mean the condition needs to define your life. Taking the steps you need to take can help you avoid destroying your own life and the lives of the people you care about. The 12-step program, when combined with professional Massachusetts addiction treatment, is many people’s best hope for establishing a solid recovery and reconnecting with their life’s purpose.
