Drug and Alcohol Abuse

I chose drug and alcohol abuse because I think it is very common to teens and adults. This topic is about what drug and alcohol abuse can do to you and people around you. I will define what causes this disease and what symptoms to look for, We will talk about prevention and also about treatment to help cure it.

what causes addiction

"Addiction is a chronic, often relapsing brain disease that causes compulsive drug seeking and use, despite harmful consequences to the addicted individual and to those around him or her. Although the initial decision to take drugs is voluntary for most people, the brain changes that occur over time challenge an addicted person’s self-control and hamper his or her ability to resist intense impulses to take drugs." www.Drugabuse.gov
