As we age, the addictive process begins to take a greater, faster toll on our well being. Age related issues need to be taken into consideration when choosing a program of recovery for older adults. Sometimes, retirement brings on late onset alcohol or substance abuse, just when life was supposed to become "easier". Sometimes, prescribed medications may become a problem. There may be different detoxification needs, mobility issues, age related health and wellness needs, cultural issues related to growing up in different eras, and grief and loss.
