What is addiction?

Addiction, sometimes called a substance use disorder, is a chronic disease that arises from repeated use of habit-forming substances. If you suffer from addiction, you’ve become dependent on alcohol, street drugs, prescription medications, or other compounds. It has altered your brain chemistry so that you can’t stop using the substance even if you wish to do so.

Addiction is often co-occurring with other mental health conditions. It can interfere with your job performance and personal relationships and lead to severe health complications.

What causes addiction?

Many factors can contribute to addiction. Genetics plays a role, as do environmental stressors, examples of which include childhood abuse and domestic violence. People of all genders, ethnicities, and socioeconomic backgrounds can develop an addiction.

If you have an existing mental health condition, such as anxiety, depression, or bipolar disorder, you have an increased risk of substance abuse. Using substances at a young age and the use of highly addictive substances, such as opioids, also increases your risk.

What is involved in addiction treatment?

The goals of addiction treatment include:

  • Ending substance dependency
  • Managing cravings and triggers
  • Developing life-coping skills
  • Building support systems
