In order to fully understand the impact that drug addiction can have on families, we must look at what drug addiction is — and what it is not. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse(NIDA), a government agency set up to inform and educate people about drug addiction, drug addiction is defined as “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.
NIDA goes on to explain that the original use and abuse of any drug is by-and-large voluntary, however, once the addiction takes hold of an individual drug user, the addiction is not voluntary. It is not possible for a drug addict to simply stop taking the drugs upon which their bodies have become dependent. It is possible, however, for an addicted individual to stop taking drugs and control their addiction cravings. With the involvement of specialized treatment programs, it is possible for an addict to get and stay clean while living a full, happy and productive life.
