What is Addiction?

Addiction is a disorder that manifests through compulsive substance use despite harmful consequences. People with addiction have an intense focus on using a certain substance, such as alcohol, tobacco, or illicit drugs, leading to significant impairment or distress.

Symptoms of Addiction

  • Inability to stop using the substance despite a desire to do so
  • Increased tolerance to the substance
  • Withdrawal symptoms when not using the substance
  • Neglecting responsibilities at work, school, or home
