Photos Famous Celebrities Before And After Drug Abuse

Many people don't understand why or how other people become addicted to drugs. They may mistakenly think that those who use drugs lack moral principles or willpower and that they could stop their drug use simply by choosing to. In reality, drug addiction is a complex disease, and quitting usually takes more than good intentions or a strong will.

What causes drug addiction?

 Studies, along with brain imaging scans, have repeatedly demonstrated genetics play a greater role in addiction than any external factors. External factors, however, certainly complicate things for someone already predisposed to addictive behaviors.


Research has long shown that a person’s environment significantly influences their risk for addiction and relapse. Although environment has a great impact on those of all ages, young people are particularly vulnerable. A study published in the Archives of Psychiatry found, “For nicotine, alcohol, and cannabis, familial environmental factors were critical in influencing use in early adolescence.”
