Illicit Drug Addiction

Illicit drugs are among the most addictive substances around. From the consequences of addiction to the safety risks of black-market distribution, illicit drugs are dangerous, and sometimes fatal. In the United States, illicit drugs have become more addictive than ever.

Physical dependence, including withdrawal symptoms and tolerance build-up, is one of the first signs of addiction. Withdrawal symptoms occur when users stop taking an illicit drug that their body has gotten used to, while tolerance increases when individuals require higher quantities of a drug to get the same high.

Psychological dependence is another major consequence of illicit drug use. Even if addicts want to stop using, they will almost always succumb to their addiction at the expense of their health and relationships. They may feel powerless as they struggle to overcome their drug habit.
