Do I have a problem with addiction?

Recognizing a problem with addiction within yourself is the first and often most difficult step in the recovery process.  The signs may appear slowly over time and be less recognizable than you think.  The UAB Medicine Addiction Recovery Program offers an individualized approach to the assessment and treatment of alcohol and substance abuse. Our core inpatient program includes daily group therapy and lectures, recreational therapy five days a week, family sessions, weekly individual therapy sessions, psychological and psychiatric evaluations as needed, and a follow-up care plan to help you remain sober after the initial treatment. UAB Medicine Addiction Recovery offers a proven way to overcome addiction and take back control of your life, without the stigma or “one-size-fits-all” approach associated with some recovery programs.
