The Disease of Addiction

We follow the American Society of Addiction Medicine’s definition of “Addiction”: “Addiction is a primary, chronic disease of brain reward, motivation, memory, and related circuitry. Dysfunction in these circuits leads to characteristic biological, psychological, social, and spiritual manifestations. This is reflected in an individual pathologically pursuing reward and/or relief by substance use and other behaviors. Addiction is characterized by inability to consistently abstain, impairment in behavioral control, craving, diminished recognition of significant problems with one’s behaviors and interpersonal relationships, and a dysfunctional emotional response. Like other chronic diseases, addiction often involves cycles of relapse and remission. Without treatment or engagement in recovery activities, addiction is progressive and can result in disability or premature death.” ASAM Criteria (3rd Ed.), p. 411. [See also: Surgeon General].

Our Court Services Program:

At Hotel California by the Sea, we understand that legal issues often go hand-in-hand with active addiction. Our Court Services Program is tailored to meet the individual needs of clients who are facing legal consequences as a result of their addiction to drugs or alcohol and serves to address the underlying issues by promoting treatment and recovery.
We strongly believe that addiction is a disease requiring treatment, as opposed to punitive punishment and shame.
