  1. well first of all the chronic nature of
    the disease means that
    relapsing to drug abuse
    at some point is not only
    possible, but likely.

  2. Relapse rates (i.e., how
    often symptoms recur)
    for people with addiction
    and other substance use
    disorders are similar to
    relapse rates for other
    well-understood chronic
    medical illnesses such as
    diabetes, hypertension,
    and asthma, which also
    have both physiological
    and behavioral
    components.

  3. Relapse rates (i.e., how
    often symptoms recur)
    for people with addiction
    and other substance use
    disorders are similar to

    medical illnesses such as
    diabetes, hypertension,
    and asthma, which also

    and behavioral
    components.

  4. Treatment
    of chronic diseases
    involves changing deeply
    imbedded behaviors, and
    relapse does not mean
    treatment has failed. For
    a person recovering from
    addiction, lapsing back to
    drug use indicates that
    treatment needs to be
    reinstated or adjusted or
    that another treatment
    should be tried.
