What is Drug Addiction?
The National Institute of Drug Addiction (NIDA) defines addiction as a “chronic, often relapsing, brain disease that causes compulsive drug seeking and use, despite harmful consequences to the addicted individual and to those around him or her.” Brain changes that occur over time from drug use affect an addicted person’s self-control, judgment and emotions and limit the ability to resist the intense impulses to take drugs. Drug addiction is a complex disease as drugs change the brain in profound ways that then foster compulsive drug abuse. Quitting can be difficult and requires more than willpower alone.
