Causes of continued drug and alcohol use

Some people start using drugs and drinking alcohol with the thought that anyone can quit anytime. Others shun the idea of enrolling in a drug treatment program or entering into a sober community with the belief that they have the ability to control their addiction impulse without help. However, studies showed that changes in the brain occur once a person uses drugs or alcohol for a long time. These drug and alcohol-induced alteration make it difficult for a person to control his or her urge to consume alcohol or use drugs despite its harmful effects. This failure to control this impulse is the distinctive symptom of addiction.

  • Drug addict or alcoholic friends or relatives
