No one decides to become an addict. There are normally very complex and deeply personal reasons for falling prey to such a debilitating disorder. At goldenroadrecovery.com we see addiction as a symptom of a larger illness, almost as an attempt to self medicate and keep that illness at bay. Here, our philosophy is different. We believe that treating an addiction is only part of the healing process. We look to rehabilitate the whole, or at least identify where the greater problem lies.
