What is addiction?

Addiction is the fact or condition of being addicted to a particular substance, thing, or activity.

There are several types of addiction such as Alcohol Addictions, Opiate Addictions, and Prescription Drug Addictions.

Drug addiction is a chronic disease characterized by compulsive, or uncontrollable, drug seeking and use despite harmful consequences and changes in the brain, which can be long lasting. These changes in the brain can lead to the harmful behaviors seen in people who use drugs. Drug addiction is also a relapsing disease. Relapse is the return to drug use after an attempt to stop.
