What is addiction?

It is a complex condition in which there is the uncontrolled use of chemical or non-chemical things despite harmful consequences. People with addiction have an intense focus on using a certain substance(s) such as alcohol, tobacco, or illicit drugs, or with a non-chemical such as internet, smartphone, masturbation, and phonograph to the point where the person’s ability to function in day to day life becomes impaired. People keep using substances and non-substance things even when they know it is causing or will cause problems.

People with an addiction may have distorted thinking and behaviors. Changes in the brain’s structure and function are what cause people to have intense cravings, changes in personality, abnormal movements, and other behaviors. Brain imaging studies show changes in the areas of the brain that relate to judgment, decision making, learning, memory, and behavioral control.

Repeated substance and non-substance use can cause changes in how the brain functions. These changes can last long after the immediate effects of the addiction.
