Drug addiction, also known as substance use disorder, is a growing problem that is often overlooked. It is a disease that alters the brain and behaviour, making it difficult for a person to control their use of legal or illegal drugs or medications.
Alcohol, marijuana, and nicotine, despite being widely used, are also considered drugs and can be abused. This pandemic has devastating effects and yet it has become normalised in society. News Central’s Bettina Nwelih has more information on this issue.
