What is addiction?
An addiction is a brain disorder. When people drink alcohol or take drugs (whether prescribed or illegal), they initially like how the substance makes them feel. Over time, their brain and body develop a tolerance to the substance, and they need to take more to get the same “feel good” effect.
Ongoing use of alcohol or drugs changes how your brain works. These changes may affect how you feel and behave, and you may need to take the drug to feel normal.
An addiction to alcohol or drugs is a disease. People with an addiction to alcohol or opioids need medical care and treatment from experts like those at ReNew Wellness.
