Drug use has become extremely prevalent in the North America. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, over 24 million North Americans over the age of 12 are estimated to have used an illegal drug in the last month. That number accounts for 9.4% of the population, suggesting that illicit substances have become considerably more accessible across the country. It’s no surprise that individuals from all walks of life are susceptible to addiction.
Addiction ruins lives, tears apart families and even causes deaths. It affects millions of people and costs billions in treatment, lost productivity and human lives every year. Yet, many people do not understand what addiction is or how it begins.
Addiction is not simply a bad habit, although a habit can turn into addiction over time. Many people take prescription drugs or drink alcohol without any significant issues. They have control over their habits.
Others, however, become obsessed with the habit and lose control of their choices. This is addiction. It has a psychological or physical component that makes it impossible to stop, while a person with a certain habit can stop at any time. Under the right – or wrong – circumstances, a habit can swiftly evolve into full-blown addiction.
