Hepatitis C

We Do Recover

Hepatitis C can be defined as a liver disease that is spread by contact of the blood of an infected individual. The virus causes the liver to swell and stops its functionality. It is key to understand what Hepatitis C is and why it is relevant to individuals struggling with addiction.

Hepatitis C is transmitted through blood-to-blood contact, such as sharing needles, syringes, or other drug paraphernalia that may be contaminated with infected blood. If you engage in intravenous drug use, you may be at a higher risk of acquiring Hepatitis C.

The history of Hepatitis C is quite interesting. It was first identified in 1989 and since then, extensive research has been conducted to better understand and manage the infection. At one point, there was no cure for Hepatitis C, but medical advancements have led to the development of highly effective antiviral medications that can cure the infection. These medications have revolutionized the treatment landscape, offering hope to individuals who may have previously felt trapped by their Hepatitis C diagnosis.

If you are in a rehab or addiction treatment program, you may hear discussions about Hepatitis C testing and treatment options. Testing for Hepatitis C is key as many individuals with addiction may have unknowingly contracted the virus. Early detection can lead to prompt intervention and appropriate medical care to prevent further damage to the liver.

It is worth noting that Hepatitis C may not always present symptoms immediately. Some people can live with the infection for years without experiencing any noticeable signs. However, if left untreated, Hepatitis C can lead to serious liver damage, including cirrhosis, liver cancer, or even liver failure.
