Addiction is now understood to be a progressive, chronic brain and body disease that requires treatment and management just like heart disease and type 2 diabetes, in as such that relapse is common. Because drugs affect the way the brain is structured and works, addiction is classed mainly as a brain disease. These effects can be long lasting, sometimes even permanent, and cause significant problems in people’s personal lives and relationships, sometimes even resulting in death.
