Drug addiction is an illness characterized by intense, and sometimes, uncontrollable cravings, along with drug seeking and drug use that persists even in the face of devastating consequences. The path to drug addiction begins with taking drugs and over time one's ability to choose not to take drugs becomes compromised. Seeking and consuming the drugs becomes compulsive. This behavior comes from the effects of prolonged drug use on brain functioning. Addiction is a brain disease that affects multiple brain circuits, including those involved in reward and motivation, learning and memory, and inhibitory control behavior.
