Synthetic drugs are artificially produced substances for the illicit market which are almost wholly manufactured from chemical compounds in illicit laboratories (amphetamine, benzodiazepines).
Most abused drugs are not only mentally addictive but physically addictive as well. Tolerance is built up to the drug. More and more of the drug is needed to achieve the desired effect. As the body physically adjusts to the drug, trying to cut down or stop is unpleasant or even painful. These withdrawal symptoms, depending on the drug, can include shakes, chills, severe aches and pains, difficulty sleeping, agitation, depression, and even hallucinations or psychosis. Avoiding withdrawal adds to the urgency of keeping up drug abuse and increases drug dependence.
Morphine is a precursor in the manufacture in a large number of opioids such as dihydromorphine, hydromorphone, nicomorphine, and heroin as well as codeine, which itself has a large family of semi-synthetic derivatives.Morphine is commonly treated with acetic anhydride and ignited to yield heroin. The pharmacology of heroin and morphine is identical except the two acetyl groups increase the lipid solubility of the heroin molecule, causing it to cross the blood-brain barrier and enter the brain more rapidly. Once in the brain, these acetyl groups are removed to yield morphine, which causes the subjective effects of heroin. Thus, heroin may be thought of as a more rapidly acting form of morphine.
In 1998, as part of the HIGH SCHOOL SENIOR SURVEY (Monitoring the Future), almost 16,000 high school seniors were asked to fill out confidential questionnaires about their use of such drugs as marijuana and cocaine; more than 38 percent reported having taken these drugs illegally, 80 percent reported consuming alcoholic beverages, and more than 60 percent reported having consumed alcohol to the point of getting drunk. In 1998, more than 25,500 American household residents aged 12 years and older participated in a U.S. government-sponsored NATIONAL HOUSEHOLD SURVEY ON DRUG ABUSE and were asked to answer an interviewer's questions about the use of these drugs; illegal drug taking was reported by an estimated 21 percent of those 12 to 17 years, 48 percent of those 18 to 25, 51 percent of those 26 to 34, and 32 percent of older adults. Furthermore, between 1990 and 1992, almost 9,000 Americans aged 15 to 54 completed confidential interviews as part of a U.S. government-sponsored National Comorbidity Survey. According to this survey, one in three tobacco smokers had tobacco problems, signs, and symptoms consistent with their having become dependent on tobacco and one in seven drinkers had alcohol problems, signs, and symptoms consistent with their having developed the clinical syndrome of alcohol dependence. Among those who reported use of marijuana, heroin, or other controlled substances, one in seven reported drug problems, signs, and symptoms consistent with their having become dependent on these drugs. These survey-based estimates are already high enough to provoke social concern. They would be even higher if corrections were to be made to account for respondents who were hesitant to report either their consumption of these drugs or the problems associated with drug use that they had.
Dependence is the compulsive use of a substance despite negative consequences which can be severe; drug dependence is simply excessive use of a drug or use of a drug for purposes for which it was not medically intended. Physical dependence on a substance (needing a drug to function) is not necessary or sufficient to define addiction. There are some substances that don't cause addiction but do cause physical dependence (for example, some blood pressure medications) and substances that cause addiction but not classic physical dependence (cocaine withdrawal, for example, it does not have symptoms like vomiting and chills; it is mainly characterized by depression).
Alcoholism, also known as "alcohol dependence," is a condition that includes craving and continued alcohol abuse despite repeated drinking-related problems, such as losing a job or getting into trouble with the law. It includes four major areas:Craving: - A strong need, or compulsion, to drink. Impaired control: -The inability to limit one's drinking on any given occasion. Physical dependence: -Withdrawal symptoms, such as nausea, sweating, shakiness, and anxiety, when alcohol use is stopped after a period of heavy drinking. Tolerance: - The need for increasing amounts of alcohol in order to feel its effects.
An addict is an individual who has a compulsive urge to use drugs, to the point where they feel they have no effective choice but to continue use. An addict will continue their self destructive behaviors in order to feel good or to avoid
feeling bad. It can dominate their mind, and keep them coming back for more. The addiction can be
different for each addict, depending on their vice and the kind of person they
Abstinence is the act or practice of refraining from indulging a desire. The type of abstinence we are referring to here is abstinence from drugs and alcohol. This term has two connotations when it comes to abstaining from drugs. The first refers to drug or alcohol treatment programs that aim to help an individual stop using drugs or alcohol for the rest of their lives. The time abstinence is also used in drug education and prevention. It refers to trying to stop children from ever using drugs.
Residential treatment offers intensive drug addiction help over a period of weeks or months. This form of treatment has some advantages over out-patient treatment, although it may not be suitable for everyone. For example, those who are responsible for caring for young children may be better suited to attendance at an out patient treatment program. Residential treatment offers a safe, drug and alcohol-free environment where individuals can confront their own drug addiction and associated issues, with the help of qualified staff. Therapy usually consists of a mixture of group counseling, individual counseling and an introduction to the principles of a drug recovery program.
