...Drug Addiction Dina Michelle Wyas COM/156 9/22/2013 Serafin Roldan Addiction is a serious problem with people. Any person can be addicted to anything. Some people are addicted to food or TV, some can be addicted to working out or computer games. The worst addiction is substance abuse. When people start taking or using a substance, they become labeled as an addict. An addict becomes addicted to the drug and its dependency with their use of it. Addicts try not to let anything come in their way with their substance abuse. It effects their life and the people that love and care for them. Addicts need help, but will often deny they do. When an addict reaches out for help there are many programs that offer support and all usually start out with the twelve steps. Everyone agrees that addicts sometimes take drugs chiefly for pleasure and sometimes chiefly to escape withdrawal or other dysphoric states for example life stress. However, there are several major problems with hedonic/withdrawal theories as full explanations of drug addiction. (Robinson, T.E.,& Berridge, K.C.2003) When people start using drugs it usually results in three different stages. (Dr. Sack) The addict either starts by taking prescription drugs, participating in social drugs, or using drugs for self-medicating such as in the case of depression. When they go to the doctor for a pain, doctors will prescribe drugs to make their body feel better and the pain to go away. Many drug addicts get started......

Drug Addiction

...Drug addiction is most often defined as a chronically relapsing disorder in which the addict experiences uncontrollable compulsion to take drugs, while simultaneously the repertoire of behaviors not related to drug seeking, taking, and recovery, declines dramatically."(1) Recent scientific research has shown significant causal relationships between drug addiction and genetic predisposition as well as between addiction and environmental factors. Both genetics and the environment influence the brain, which in turn effects the behavior of usage. Once an individual begins using psychotropic substances, such as cocaine or heroin, measurable changes in brain chemistry and physiology perpetuate the cycle of addiction. Thus, we have an example of brain affecting behavior, which in turn, affects the brain. This cycle is particularly extreme and insular in the situation of drug addiction where free will and decision making are quickly and severely impaired. In this paper, we will first explore the genetic and environmental theories on drug addiction. We will then investigate how the behavior of drug addiction changes the brain to perpetuate the circle of cause and effect between the brain and behavior. Genetic Influences on the Behavior of Drug Addiction: Addiction does not result from a single gene. However, multiple genetic trends have been identified as crucial contributors to the illness of addiction. Alcoholics and cocaine addicts often express the A1 allele of the dopamine......

Teenage Drug Abuse

... Drug Abuse Among Teenagers Drug abuse among teenagers ia a very serious issue today. Not only does it physically and emotionally destroy our youth, but it also affects society as a whole. Sometimes educating teens or entering rehabilitation programs are not enough of a deterrent. What causes teenagers to go beyond normal experimentation of drugs and become addicts? Like any teen, peer pressure is a biggie. If one wants to fit in with their peers they tend to do as they do. Perhaps to fit into a certain group you must behave and use as they do. Another reason may be not fitting into the group of your choice. Teenagers tend to go through many changes, physically, hormonally, and emotionally. Then there is always the neighborhood or environment that they live in. Perhaps the neighborhood is active into drugs and crime. These affects are greater than the early stages in life. The teen knows more than the baby or toddler. Perhaps, they believe ”they know it all!” They want a certain independence from their parents and families. Growing pains are tough. Some teens even become depressed and drop out of school. Some may even return to drugs as an escape from the pressures of school, peers, and families. With many causes or reasons that teens may find to use, after a period of time they become “hooked” or addicted. They may start off with alcohol, cough medicines, pain patches, bath salts or marijuana and then move on to prescription drugs, crack,......

...Essay The Cause and Effect of Drug Addiction What is drug addiction? Drug addiction refers to the obsessive and repeated use of dangerous amounts of drugs and the appearance of withdrawal symptoms when not using drugs.Many people do not understand why individuals become addicted to drugs or how drugs change the brain to become compulsive. Many people view drug abuse and addiction as strictly a social problem and may characterize those who take drugs as morally weak. One very common belief is that drug abusers should be able to just stop taking drugs if they are only willing to change their behavior. What people often underestimate is the complexity of drug addiction. Drug addiction is not just an addiction it is a disease that impacts the brain and because of that, stopping drug abuse is not simply a matter of willpower. Through scientific advances we now know much more about how exactly drugs work in the brain, and we also know that drug addiction can be successfully treated to help people stop abusing drugs and resume their productive lives. Addiction is a chronic, often relapsing brain disease that causes compulsive drug seeking and use despite harmful consequences to the individual that is addicted and to those around them. Drug addiction is a brain disease because the abuse of drugs leads to changes in the structure and function of the brain. For this reason there are many causes of psychological and physical changes through the drug abuser as well. The......

Drug Addiction

...their addiction? Addiction births almost all societal and psychological problems. It is an intricate problem that spreads from an individual, to his or her family and eventually to the society as a whole. A query whether it is possible to wake up and give up an addiction is one clouded with uncertainty. So what is addiction? What are the various types and symptoms associated with each? And what causes an individual to quit an addiction? Addiction refers to the physiological and or psychological dependence on a practice or substance beyond one’s voluntary control. It means that the addict cannot be able to keep off the particular psychological and physiological substance or practice. Such dependence can be on substances such as alcohol and drugs, activities such as gambling and even junk food. Once someone gets addicted to something it is immensely hard to break off from the habit. There exists various types of addiction, but addiction should be differentiated from a habitual problematic behavior. There are addictive behaviors that are simply pleasurable and recreational. Such activities may not cause physical or bodily harm, and thus they should not be categorized as addictive. One form of addiction is alcohol dependence. This can be characterized with continuous heavy drinking even when alcohol cause bodily harm to an individual. The addict usually finds it immensely hard to go a day without using alcohol.

...What Causes Addiction? How do you know when you are addicted to something? Is it a choice or just an effect? What most people do not understand, is that no one really chooses to be an addict. Addiction is a condition where people become obsessed with a substance or activity. Substance abuse makes people become reliable on a certain substance, and they don’t realize that it is affecting their life. Addicts let their addictions affect their responsibilities that they have at home or at work. Addiction can affect people’s relationships and health. People with addiction usually don’t think that their behavior is affecting themselves and others. According to National Institutes of Health, there are about 3.6 million people in the United States that are addicted to drugs. Many of these addicts are addicted to more than one type of drug. Many people that are addicted to something were not always like that. Addiction can happen anywhere in the world. Just because you say that you will never be addicted to something it doesn’t mean that it will never happen. There are many factors that can contribute to addiction. One major factor that causes addiction is through genetics. Individuals don’t realize that whatever their family does impacts their life. According to the Mediresource website, explains that there is a connection between addiction and genetics. Children who are around addictive parents usually have a higher chance of becoming an addict themselves (Mediresource). Family...

...Alegria Rodriguez Professor Baiz PELEC 15 16 May 2014 Drug Abuse It is often misunderstood by people why or how others get addicted to drugs. Most of the time we perceive abusers lack morals, are bad people and that it is easy to quit and to change their behaviors. Drug abuse is a serious public health problem that affects almost every community and family in some way. Each year drug abuse causes millions of serious illnesses or injuries among Americans. Abused drugs include Amphetamines, Anabolic steroids, Club drugs, Cocaine, Heroin, Inhalants, Marijuana and Prescription drugs. Drug addiction is actually a disease and quitting is more than having a strong will or good intentions. Drugs change the brain which causes quitting to be more difficult even if the abuser is ready to do so because of withdrawals or other symptoms. It has so many negative consequences on the abuser and society. Estimates of the total overall costs of substance abuse in the United States, including productivity and health- and crime-related costs, exceed $600 billion annually. Estimates of the total overall costs of substance abuse in the United States, including productivity and health and crime related costs, surpass $600 billion annually. This includes approximately $193 billion for illicit drugs, (1) $193 billion for tobacco, (2) and $235 billion for alcohol.

...CHAPTER 2. A HISTORY OF DRUG AND ALCOHOL ABUSE IN AMERICA Written by: Tammy L. Anderson To appear in: Harrison, L., Anderson, T., Martin, S., and Robbins, C. Drug and Alcohol Use in Social Context. Belmont, CA: Wadsworth Publishing -1- A HISTORY OF DRUGS AND ALCOHOL IN THE UNITED STATES Introduction The purpose of this chapter is to review the history of drug use and its social control in the United States so that students can gain an improved and thorough understanding of today’s problems and policies. Our approach to this matter is sociological, i.e., exploring how the interconnection between culture, social institutions, groups, and individuals function to create drug-related phenomena. A sociological approach integrates many kinds of social, cultural, political, and economic factors that manifest themselves in everyday life. While pharmacology helps us comprehend how specific drugs impact brain activity, sociology can inform us about the social roots of drugrelated behaviors which ultimately shape beliefs and behavior and motivate social policy. Therefore, a review of drug use in the U.S. and the social response to it must consider many diverse phenomena. This broader framework will move us beyond domestic borders and into the international community, for the history of drug abuse is an international, socio-political marvel. Another idea warrants mentioning before we begin our history lesson. It centers on the idea that drug use and abuse are......

Drug Addiction

...Drug addiction is a problem that has been increasing immensely among our society today. Drug addictions can only hinder or restrain us from accomplishing goals or dreams in life. People sometimes feel they are too bright, too powerful, too much in control to become addictive. Addiction can trap anyone. It can lead to harming ones body, causing problems in family structure, and contribute to the delinquency in society. The sooner people seek help for drug addiction problems, the more chances they have of gaining control of their life once again. However, abstinence is the safest way to live a longer and healthier life. We are greatly influenced by the people around us. Today one of the number one reasons of teenage drug usage is peer pressure. Peer pressure represents social influences that affect us. It can have a positive or a negative effect, depending on what path one follows. There is direct and indirect pressure that might influence a person’s decision in using drugs. Direct pressure might be when a person is offered to try drugs. Indirect pressure might be when a person is around people using drugs and sees that there is nothing wrong with using drugs. Adolescents who use drugs seek out peers who also use and, in turn, are influenced by those peers (Berndt, 1992). A person might also try drugs just to fit in a social group, even if the person had no intentions of using drugs. Adolescents can try out different roles and observe the reactions of their friends to their......
