Drug Addiction and Drug Abuse

Drugs are chemical substances that can change how your body and mind work. Drug Addiction is defined as a chronic, relapsing disorder characterized by compulsive drug seeking and use despite adverse consequences. It is considered a brain disorder, because it involves functional changes to brain circuits involved in reward, stress, and self-control. The brain changes from addiction can be lasting, so drug addiction is considered a "relapsing" disease. This means that people in recovery are at risk for taking drugs again, even after years of not taking them. Those changes may last a long time after a person has stopped taking drugs. There are a wide variety of addictive substances that exist, but the most common types are classified under six main categories: alcohol, benzodiazepines, illicit drugs, opiates, sleeping pills and stimulants.

  • Cocaine
  • Heroin
  • Inhalants
  • Marijuana
  • Methamphetamines
