Substance abuse and Addiction
Substance abuse and addiction, also known as substance use disorder, is a drug use pattern that leads to significant impairment or distress. People with this disorder often experience negative consequences such as physical, mental, or social harm but continue to use drugs despite these consequences. This can lead to a persistent desire to use drugs, making quitting difficult. Withdrawal symptoms can also make quitting challenging. Substance abuse and addiction can affect anyone, regardless of age, gender, or socioeconomic status, and can devastate the individual and their loved ones. It is essential to seek professional help for substance abuse and addiction to prevent further harm and improve overall well-being.
