Drug addiction is a chronic disease that compels people to use drugs in a way that’s harmful to their health. The reason this happens is that a drug addiction rewires your brain, creating new pathways that are designed solely for drug use.
These pathways are created after your brain experiences the pleasurable effects of a drug and it adjusts itself to receive more. This, in turn, prompts you to use more of the drug in an effort to satisfy the bottomless pit that is addiction.
Drug addiction is a very serious disease that has physical, social, and mental health consequences.
Drug addiction carries with it two components: dependency and addiction. The dependency aspect is when your body physically needs the drug and goes into withdrawal when it’s not available.
The addiction component leads to obsessive cravings and uncontrolled use. It is also associated with behaviors that can be destructive and life threatening. Combined, these two components often lead to: • Physical withdrawal, such as the shakes or flu-like symptoms, or worse.• The inability to control use.• Poor performance at work or school.• Isolation.• Choosing your drug of choice over other activities.• Financial issues.• Difficulty in relationships with friends and family.• Depression and Suicide.
There’s very little in your life that drug addiction doesn’t affect, which is why treatments designed for long-term abstinence work best. How do NAD+ and ketamine therapy help drug addiction?
