Myth about Addiction
More than anything else drug addiction is a character flaw
Its a brain disease and it can happen to anyone.Every type of drug of abuse has its own individual mechanism for changing how the brain functions. But regardless of which drug a person is addicted to, many of the effects it has on the brain are similar: they range from changes in the molecules and cells that make up the brain, to mood changes, to changes in memory processes and in such motor skills as walking and talking. And these changes have a huge influence on all aspects of a persons behavior. The drug becomes the single most powerful motivator in adrug abusers existence. He or she will do almost anything for the drug .
