Drug addiction is classified as a disease that causes changes in the structure and function of the brain. It is an uncontrollable urge to use drugs regardless of the harmful consequences it has on the individual’s health as well as on their personal relationships, employment and financial status. Drug addiction has the ability to affect a person’s self control and ability to make safe decisions. The addict experiences intense impulses to continue to use and take drugs. The changes that drugs put on the brain and the misconception that drugs make it easier to escape daily stress, makes it so difficult for a person who is addicted to stop abusing drugs.
Many do not understand why an individual can’t just stop using drugs. It is important to understand that stopping drug abuse is not just a matter of willpower, drug addiction is a disease that impacts the brain severely and often requires the assistance of a treatment center and the support of friends and family to overcome.
