Addict is a slang word used to describe a person struggling with substance abuse. Many people find this word to be demeaning because it labels a person by his or her disease. Because The Recovery Village views addictive disorder as a disease, making the distinction between the person and the disease is essential to maintaining dignity, and hope for recovery.
