With the rise in drug abuse and alcohol addiction, there is also a growing need for addicts to get help. As the addiction treatment industry keeps growing, so does the demand for it. I could remember a time when an addict cried in desperation for help years ago, as if his addiction was completely out of his control and did not know what to do about it. As I kept seeing this sight more and more, people’s lives being destroyed because of substance abuse and alcohol, people drinking away their sorrow, I had to ask myself that if there is any good in this world, somebody has to do something!
Having seen a video on the late Steve Job’s saying that the world did not come this way ready made, but people built things here, I found that in order to make a difference in the lives of many here in this world and in order to improve addicts and their families, I have to be the one to do something about it.
This is not an easy task especially given the complexity of some addictions as well as the new kinds of drugs available on the market today. However, Addict Free is an online addiction recovery platform designed to motivate behavioral change. We believe that addictions are not a disease but an symptom of a greater underlying problem.
