What are the facts about substance use disorder?

Chronic - Addiction was recognized as a chronic disease of the brain by the AMA back in the 1950s. Chronic means that once you have it, you have it, and you have it for life. Progressive - The disease itself is one of progression, which means the addict is constantly “sliding down the mountain” as a metaphor. Essentially, in “active addiction,” the addict’s brain is continuously adjusting to whatever the substance being used is. This means that the dopamine (feel-good) chemicals released in the brain will need ever-increasing amounts of that substance for the addict to get high, drunk, etc. There is also “Process Addiction,” like gambling, sex, social media, and shopping. The progression is the same; the addict will always need to do more to get “high,” with the consequences of this behavior having more substantial adverse effects. Untreated - Chemical addiction, if left untreated, only has one end, death. Along the way, however, there is more than likely a long list of destructive behaviors that affect everyone. People suffering from the disease of addiction start losing things like family, jobs, health, freedom, etc., and if they do not stop using, ultimately, their life.
