Category: Drug Addiction

Drug addiction refers to the need to use a substance to such a degree that it infers with your health, your family, your day to day life. This is also referred to as a substance use disorder or substance abuse.

Addiction can happen to anyone, anywhere, at any time. Addiction does not discriminate on age, gender, or socioeconomic status. Many people believe that drug addiction is a choice, whereas evidence proves that addiction is a disease of the brain.

Drug addiction affects not only the person addicted but the individual’s family and friends. Addiction affects the community as a whole. For this reason, there are many different treatment programs and resources available for people to find recovery.

Common drug addictions include prescription pills, heroin, cocaine, crack, crystal meth, and marijuana. Oftentimes, drug users will abuse more than one substance at a time.
