Drug Addiction is a Disease

Drug addiction can be caused by factors unique to each individual:

  • Genetics can affect our susceptibility to drugs.
  • Different drugs affect the body’s system in different ways due to chemicals and signals affecting the brain. For instance, one person may enjoy the effects of a drug while another may not.
  • The biological makeup of a person or a person who has an immediate relative that is an addict may be more susceptible to drug abuse.
  • An important aspect of drug addiction is its availability to you and the time it takes to become addicted.
  • Past trauma, sexual abuse, loss of a loved one, or some type of accident are all factor that cause many people to use drugs to self-medicate the intense pain they are carrying.
  • Peer influence and societal pressures can aid in the attraction to drugs. If your friends are involved with drug use, you are far likelier to take them yourself and they will be more readily available.
  • Many people have been programmed to believe that taking drugs is a normal part of life. In reality, taking drugs causes numerous health complications, wreaks havoc on your personal life, and poses dangerous and unnecessary risks to your life.
