Drug and Alcohol Addiction
Addiction may develop because the user likes how the alcohol or drug makes them feel. Pleasure becomes the motivating factor, and physical and emotional aspects of addiction develop and strengthen their hold on the addicted individual.
When someone experiences drug or alcohol addiction, they disregard the consequences, which can include serious problems with health, finances, relationships, and job or school performance. Addiction is a chronic disease, and relapse prevention is ongoing, even after intensive treatment.
