Drug addiction and alcohol dependence

Alcohol abuse means having unhealthy or dangerous drinking habits, such as drinking every day or drinking too much at a time. Symptoms includes: Decreased involvement in extracurricular activities, Depression, Lack of interest in family or friends, Restlessness, Inability to control drinking, Erratic behavior and Violent behavior.

The signs and symptoms of alcohol use, as well as the short- and long-term effects of alcohol abuse don't always occur in isolation. In fact, an alarming number of people purposely combine their alcohol with drugs. Drug abuse is a serious public health problem that affects almost every community and family in some way. This is frequently done with the intention of compounding the effects of both to achieve a greater state of intoxication. Some of the drugs used include Methamphetamine, Anabolic steroids, Cocaine, Heroin, Inhalants. Drug abuse also plays a role in many major social problems, such as drugged driving, violence, stress, and child abuse. Most drugs affect the brain's "reward circuit" by flooding it with the chemical messenger dopamine.
