OUR PLEDGE: In partnership , WE TREAT THE ADDICTION; YOU RECLAIM YOUR LIFE.
Addiction is a chronic, relapsing disease that affects the brain and causes
compulsive drug seeking and use despite harmful consequences.
Addiction is considered a brain disease because drugs change the brain—in
structure and in function. It's true that for most people, the initial decision
to take drugs is voluntary. Over time, however, drug abuse can cause changes to
the brain that erode a person's self control and ability to make sound
decisions, while sending intense impulses to take drugs.
Drug addiction is a chronic, relapsing disease––like diabetes, asthma, or heart
disease––and it can be managed successfully. Treatment helps people to
counteract addiction's powerful disruptive effects and regain control of their
lives. And just many people today do not understand why individuals become addicted to drugs, or how drugs change the brain to foster compulsive drug abuse. This new NIDA booklet aims to fill that knowledge gap by providing scientific information about the
disease of drug addiction, including the many harmful consequences and basic
approaches to prevent and treat the disease.
as with other chronic diseases, relapses are not uncommon. But
relapse does not signal failure—rather, it indicates that treatment should be
reinstated or adjusted to help the addict fully recover.
No single factor can predict whether or not a person will become addicted to drugs.
Risk for addiction is influenced by a person's biology, social environment, and
development. The more risk factors an individual has, the greater the chance
that taking drugs can lead to addiction. For example:
In response to the overwhelming surges in dopamine, the brain adjusts by
decreasing the number of dopamine receptors available––thus diminishing the
function of the reward circuit. Drug addicts are compelled to abuse drugs to
bring their dopamine function back up to normal, requiring ever larger amounts
to achieve the initial dopamine high—an effect known as tolerance.
