What is drug addiction?
Drug addiction is a serious disease characterized by uncontrollable drug seeking and use despite the consequences. The changes in the brain caused by addiction lead to harmful behaviors seen in people who abuse drugs. Drug addiction is also a relapse disease, meaning that sometimes users return to drug use after an attempt to stop.
Addiction begins with the act of taking drugs. Over time, the ability to choose not to do so becomes compromised. Obtaining and using the drug becomes uncontrollable. The compulsive drug-seeking is mostly due to the effects of long-term drug exposure on brain function.
