What Is an Addiction?

An addiction to drugs or alcohol is often misunderstood both by people that do not suffer from the condition and by people that do suffer from it. Oftentimes, it is easier to first define an addiction by what it is not rather than by what it is.

An addiction is not a lack of willpower. An addiction is not a problem with the person's strength of character. And an addiction is most definitely not a choice that a person makes. The only way to truly recover from addiction is to see the help of addiction treatment in Newport or the surrounding area.

Now, while you are aware of what an addiction is not, you might be wondering what an addiction actually is. An addiction is a disease. Just like any other disease that a person might suffer from, an addiction has both physical as well as mental roots and components.

When a person consumes or uses addictive drugs or alcohol, the chemicals in the substance will make their way to the brain. Once they arrive at the brain, they send signals to the cells in the brain, instructing it on how to act and how to function in the moment. This creates a temporary chemical imbalance in the chemistry of the brain.

If a person only uses drugs or alcohol once, then the chemical imbalance will eventually correct itself when the substance makes its way out of the body. However, with continued drug and alcohol abuse, the chemical imbalance created in the brain can become permanent rather than temporary. When there is a chemical imbalance that remains in the brain fulltime, it is chemically dependent upon the drug or alcohol to function normally. This is the root of the physical addiction to drugs or alcohol.

However, there is also the mental side to an addiction to drugs or alcohol. The mental side of this addiction generally occurs before the physical addiction has fully taken route and is an addiction to the feelings that the drug creates in the body. The most addictive feeling that drugs can produce for most people is a sense of euphoria or extreme contentment and blissfulness. Many people start craving that feeling almost immediately after they start abusing drugs and alcohol and it is what often leads to continued drug and alcohol abuse.

The symptom that most people recognize of addiction is a lack of control when it comes to substance use and abuse. An addict cannot stop themselves from abusing drugs or alcohol in general and cannot stop once they have started to do so. This behavior is often what is misinterpreted as being a choice or a lack of willpower.

Is Recovery from Addiction Possible?

Knowing all of these facts about addiction, it makes you wonder whether or not it is even possible to overcome an addiction to drugs or alcohol. The short answer is, yes, addiction recovery is indeed possible. The catch, of course, is that a recovery from an addiction is not possible without help. The fact that addiction involves a lack of control regarding substance abuse means that the person cannot stop themselves from having an addiction alone. The good news, though is that help is available and Newport Addiction Treatment Centers can help connect you to the help that you need.
