Remarkable advances in neuroscience and behavioral medicine have demonstrated that drug addiction is a complex and multifaceted brain disease characterized by a loss of control over the use of drugs that results in recurring and progressively adverse consequences.

Signs and symptoms may include:

  • Loss of behavioral control—not being able to stop using drugs, risky or inappropriate conduct, failed attempts to quit or control using
  • Tolerance—the need to drink greater amounts of alcohol to attain the same effect
  • Craving
  • Mood swings
  • Increasingly stressed family or interpersonal relationships
  • Diminished job or academic performance
  • Heightened defensiveness
  • Physical dependence
  • Withdrawal syndrome
