Our Staff understands that addiction is a primary physiological illness which afflicts people. The disease and symptoms of addiction are progressive. If the disease goes untreated, it could be fatal. IRC believes that a patient who follows a treatment plan, after-care programs and guidelines to fight addiction, will begin to heal and recover from this devastating disease. The people at IRC believe that as long as an alcoholic or addict is alive, there is hope for them to be healed.
