Drug Addiction

Drug addiction is a long-lasting neurological condition. Despite the damage drugs do, it makes a person keep using them. Drug abuse may alter the brain and cause addiction.

Since addiction may cause long-lasting alterations in the brain, substance addiction is regarded as a “relapsing” disorder. This implies that even after years of abstinence, those in recovery are still in danger of relapsing on drugs.

Drug usage is risky. Both body and brain may suffer lasting damage as a result. It can harm others who are close to someone, such as friends, families, children, and unborn children. Addiction can result from drug use as well.
