Substance abuse addiction is a common term that refers to individuals who suffer from an addiction to some form of drugs and/or alcohol. This can include both illegal “street drugs” (such as heroin and meth as well as prescription drugs (such as anti-depressants and pain killers).
Some people are able to use drugs recreationally without ever becoming addicted. However, for many others, drug use leads to abuse, often followed by dependency on or addiction to the chemical. Addiction is a chronic brain disease that causes the individual to compulsively seek out and use the drug they are addicted to. Although the initial choice to try drugs is voluntary, once the brain changes and the addiction takes hold, the individual’s self-control is diminished and it can become impossible to resist the intense urge to take the drug.
