Drug abuse is an intense desire to obtain increasing amounts of a particular substance . Drug dependence is the body's physical need, or addiction , to a specific agent. Over the long term, this dependence results in physical harm and behavior problems which causes tolerance and cross tolerance. Thus, it creates a vicious cycle.
Legal drugs are not necessarily safer. A study in 2010 asked drug-harm experts to rank various illegal and legal drugs. Alcohol was found to be the most dangerous. It is believed that drug abuse only harms the user but this graph clearly depicts that it not just harms the person but destroys the whole family ,his profession, and life.
A TRUESTORY From age 13 to 18, Alby got high several times a day to help him cope. He went to school high and eventually dropped out. “I was losing focus. My attention went from 100 to zero. I was depressed,” he says. Now, after getting substance abuse treatment, Alby has been able to face his problems by talking them outwith counselors and making new friends he describes as “positive.” As he puts it,“I feel a lot better aboutmyself. I feel a lot sharper. I don’t feel lazy anymore.”

PROGRAMMES LIKE SMART RECOVERY ARE USED THAT LOOKS AT THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THOUGHTS, FEELINGS AND BEHAVIOURS, RECOGNIZING THAT A CHANGE IN ANY OF THESE AREAS CAN AFFECT THE WHOLE CHARACTER.
