Part 2: Addictive Disease   
What starts out as abuse, something that can be controlled, can lead to addiction, something that cannot be controlled and sprials into deep problems that almost always never ends well. This very straight forward and honest presentation talks about how people can move from abuse to addiction, the signs, the major negative impact that addiction has on you and all those that interact with you. However, the program will also show ways that you can overcome and be better than addiction, the methods that you can get off that slippery slope and get back on a healthy and clean path in life. This lesson can save lives, and the medical professionals who present it to you have saved many lives when their advice has been followed.
