All it takes is one use or introduction to drugs for a person to be hooked. Sometimes this happens immediately, and other times it happens over a prolonged period of time. Not everyone will develop an addiction if they use drugs. Psychological dependency can develop as well and it’s important to have a basic understanding of both.

Drug addiction is a disease of the brain. It happens when a person uses drugs or alcohol. A person who takes painkillers may feel good, but they don’t crave the experience after it’s over. An addict who takes painkillers will automatically begin to fixate on the drugs and find excuses to continue taking them. It can also start with the traumatic event that someone’s trying to numb.
