The short answer to your question is- yes. Addiction is a progression that is beyond physical dependence. Addiction is defined as a disorder of ones mind. When someone uses or abuses drugs or alcohol they are automatically at risk for addiction due to the psychological process that takes place. When someone is afflicted with addiction, a chemical rewiring process happened in their brain. The psychological change in someone with addiction, is the reason individuals are not able to stop using and drinking on power of will.
