What is addiction treatment?
As many as 10% of American adults will face an addiction at some point in their life, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH). That means more than 23 million men and women struggle with alcohol, tobacco, or drug use every year. Even more surprising is that some studies have shown that as high as 75% of people struggling with addiction don't seek treatment. This can have a major impact on their physical and mental health, work, family relationships, and overall quality of life. At HEALOR Primary Care, our experienced team of doctors understands the unique health and behavioral challenges addiction poses. That's why we offer innovative and effective addiction treatment services for anyone struggling with addiction.
