Even in a city of such stature, the disease of addiction is still a real concern.
Today, addiction is classified as a mental illness by the medical community. It is characterized by compulsive behavior to seek and acquire a substance, loss of control of use, continued use despite negative consequences and the emergence of negative emotional states. The disease affects the reward and stress systems in the brain. Over time, continued use causes worse damage to these areas of the brain and it becomes more difficult to stop and stay abstinent.
Realistically, addiction can happen to anyone at any time. There is no formula for predicting who will be affected and when. In many cases, risk increases as exposure increases coupled with a desire for the substance to alter one’s mental or emotional state.
The National Institute on Drug Abuse, NIH, identifies four stages in the progression of using, namely experimentation, ongoing use, dangerous use, and dependence or addiction. Some people travel from stage one to four very quickly, while others never fully reach stage four. The key is prevention when it comes to the disease of addiction.
