What is addiction?
Addiction is caused by habitually taking addictive substances. The National Institute on Drug Addiction (NIDA) defines addiction as a chronic relapsing brain disease characterized by compulsive drug use, despite harmful consequences.
Addiction, also known as substance use disorder, can affect anyone: rich or poor, male or female, employed or unemployed, young or old, and any race or ethnicity. Overcoming addiction problems takes more than willpower.
People with addiction issues typically are intensely focused on using alcohol or drugs, to the point that it takes over their life. In the grips of addiction, people will keep using alcohol or a drug even when they know it will cause problems.
People with addictive disorders may be aware they have a problem, but unable to stop it, even if they try. The addiction may cause a long list of complications including issues at work, and with family members and friends. Misusing drugs and alcohol is the leading cause of preventable illnesses and premature death.
When it comes to any substance abuse, addiction is as varied as the people who experience it. There are many causes of addiction; the reasons given for wanting to get sober are numerous as well.
