CHOOPER's GUIDE PHILOSOPHY on DRUG ADDICTION and ALCOHOLISM

We believe that alcoholism and drug addiction are brain diseases.

We believe that the disease of addiction (whether it is an addiction to alcohol or prescription or illegal drugs) is treatable.

We believe that not only is recovery is possible, it is a reality.

We believe in equal access to treatment and that there is no “one” or “right” way to do treatment.

We believe that  alcoholism and drug addiction are medical not moral or legal problems.

We believe that the drug war was ill conceived, that it has failed and that it is one of the greatest social justice issues of this century.

We believe that the stigma society attaches to alcoholism and drug addiction perpetuates and escalates the problem.
We believe that alcoholism and drug addiction are chronic diseases and those afflicted should be treated with the same level of care and dignity as those with other chronic diseases, eg., diabetes or hypertension.
We believe that understanding the five key risk factors for developing the diseases of alcoholism and drug addiction (genetics, social environment, childhood trauma, mental illness and early use) is critical.
We believe that inappropriate referrals result in higher recidivism rates.
We believe that no one should have to die from alcoholism and drug addiction.
