Substance use disorders (SUDs) are prevalent throughout the country, and only 3% of people successfully recover without the assistance of formal treatment. SUDs are very complicated brain diseases that are influenced by the individual’s environment, mental state, and experiences.

Because of the complex nature of addictive disorders, patients are likely to relapse if the biological, psychological, and social contributors are not accounted for in treatment. The good news is that when individuals receive such treatment, success is possible. Individuals with SUD can live fulfilling lives where the rate of relapse can be as low as 30%.
