Addiction involving drugs can include prescription medication, opioids, stimulants, cannabis, hallucinogens, and any other mood-altering substances
Drug Addiction (otherwise known as Addiction involving drugs) involves symptoms of unmanageable behaviour and seeking escape, reward and relief with drugs. Typically there is a great deal of time, effort and resources put into obtaining and participating in obtaining and using drugs; there are significant consequences to these behaviours; and there is an inability to stop without help in spite of the desire to do so.
