Substance Abuse is Different from Drug Addiction

Substance abuse differs from drug addiction in that drug addiction is a compulsion and an active seeking to use a substance, regardless of any negative consequences. Addiction always involves a lack of control and a lack of ability to take personal responsibility. Constant abuse of certain drugs or alcohol can lead to addiction. A drug rehab program can greatly reduce substance abuse and effectively stave the addiction.

Alcohol is the most abused drug and has been called the "dirtiest" because it affects so many portions of the brain, unlike other drugs. Alcohol is typically used as a "pick me up", and interestingly is actually a depressant. Because of its "dirty" reputation, the abuse of alcohol is one requiring frequent detox.

Alcoholism has been recognized as a disease since 1956 by the American Medical Association. Similarly, the American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders classifies chronic drug abuse and addition as a disease. The early detection of substance abuse, the precursor to drug addiction, should be the first step in reducing this dreaded disease.
