Addiction, or substance abuse disorder, is a disease that affects a person’s brain and behaviour and leads to an inability to control the use of a legal or illegal drug or medication.
Some of the more common addictive substances include:
- opioids, including both heroin as well as prescription pain medication like oxycodone and morphine
Common symptoms of substance use disorder include:
- cravings intense enough to affect your ability to think about other things
- a need to use more of the substance to experience the same effects
- unease or discomfort if you can’t easily access the substance
- risky substance use, like driving or working while using it
- trouble managing work, school, or household responsibilities because of substance use
- friendship or relationship difficulties related to substance use
- spending less time on activities you used to enjoy
- an inability to stop using the substance
- withdrawal symptoms when you try to quit
You may need help from your doctor, family, friends, support groups or an organized treatment program to overcome your addiction, but addiction is treatable.
