What Is Substance Abuse?

Substance abuse is defined as the abuse of alcohol and drugs. Ultimately, leading to a dependence on the substance.

The compulsive or dangerous dependency on alcohol and/or drugs is usually the danger in this specific addiction. A person’s environment, psychological traits, and stress level are a major contributor to creating dependence on the substance. A person may know that they suffer from this condition if they have the desire to change or quit, but can’t. Substance abuse addiction can affect anyone. Individuals are not at fault for having an addiction, but they are responsible for finding treatment.
