What constitutes a diagnosis of addiction?


According to the AMA and APA, Addiction to Alcohol and Other Drugs is a disease. This has been so since 1956 (AMA), and 1960 (APA). It qualifies as a disease because it meets the following criteria:


Primary: The illness exists in and of itself. (Addiction is secondary only to addiction but may manifest in addition to other illnesses.)


Chronic: Does not go away, fix itself, or spontaneously remit.
Progressive: Worsens over time.


Symptomatic: Can be diagnosed through careful attention to the ways it manifests in a person’s behavior and lifestyle.


Fatal: If left untreated.


Treatable: That is what this service is about.
