What is Addiction?

Drug or alcohol addiction is also known as substance abuse disorder. It is both chronic and progressive. Addiction is something you can struggle with for your entire life, even if you haven’t abused the substance in years. Someone who is addicted often can’t control their use of that substance. It is more than just willpower. Addiction changes the way that your brain works and makes it incredibly hard to quit using whatever substance you are addicted to. It makes it both mentally and physically challenging. Getting and staying clean usually requires lifelong treatment.

Some common substances that individuals can become addicted to include:

  • Alcohol

  • Marijuana

  • Steroids (anabolic)

  • Tobacco or nicotine

  • Synthetic cannabinoids

  • Club drugs, such as MDMA, GHB, ketamine, and flunitrazepam

  • Sedatives, hypnotics, and anxiolytics (anti-anxiety medications)

  • Hallucinogens, such as ayahuasca, PCP, LSD, mescaline, and DMT

  • Opioid painkillers, such as morphine, hydrocodone, fentanyl, heroin, and oxycodone

  • Stimulants, such as methamphetamine and cocaine 

  • Inhalants, such as aerosol sprays, solvents, gases, and nitrites

Symptoms of Addiction

Symptoms of substance abuse or addiction can vary depending on the type of substance that an individual is addicted to. Some general signs can include:

  • Bloodshot eyes

  • Weight loss

  • Inability to stop using the substance

  • Changes in physical appearance (looking tired, ungroomed, poor complexion)

  • Appetite changes 

  • Money problems

  • Difficulty completing tasks at school, work, or home

  • Risky behaviors
