Drug abuse and Addiction

Drug abuse refers to the misuse or excessive use of legal or illegal substances in a way that has negative effects on an individual's physical, mental, and social well-being. It involves the inappropriate consumption of substances, such as alcohol, prescription medications, or illicit drugs, in amounts or manners that are harmful to the user and those around them.

Addiction, on the other hand, is a more complex condition that often stems from drug abuse. Addiction, also known as substance use disorder, is characterized by compulsive and uncontrollable drug-seeking behavior, despite negative consequences. It is a chronic brain disorder that affects the brain's reward system, leading to changes in behavior, motivation, and impulse control. People with addiction find it extremely difficult to stop using the substance, even when they are aware of its harmful effects on their health, relationships, and overall quality of life.
