What Is Rehab?
Rehab, short for residential rehabilitation, is an alcohol and/or drug treatment program that occurs in a residential facility.

Supportive, caring, and often abstinence-based rehab supports individuals who struggle with being chemically free in their larger community.
Abuse or Addiction?
Drug or alcohol abuse and is different from drug or alcohol addiction. Abuse is characterized by an individual not completing tasks at home or at school, exhibiting negative behaviors, including physical harm of others, and legal problems. Addiction involves withdrawal from family members, patterns of behavior focused on addiction, and use of larger quantities of a substance. These indicators can help you understand whether you or a loved one are abusing or addicted.
Is Addiction a Brain Disease?
Addiction is in fact a brain disease. Genetic factors make certain individuals more likely to become addicts. After repeated exposure to substances, brain structure and function changes. Even with individuals who are not genetically predisposed to addiction, addiction causes a brain disease. It can be completely cured, but requires specific treatment.
