Addiction and Brain Dysfunction

in Core information

Drug users who can not kick the habit can blame a dysfunctional brain for their addiction, according to new research offerd by the University of Melbourne.

Nearly every drug dependent individual expects in the beginning that he/she can quit abusing drugs or alcohol without any help, treatment or support.
Acutally most addicts that attempt to quit without treatment. oftentimes fail to ask for support from family, friends, AA or NA.

They rarely visit a Therapist or Psychiatristi for initial assessment and guidance. Most of those attempts lead in failure and continued relapse. Extensive research has shown that long-term substance abuse results in significant changes in Brain Function or Brain Dysfunction that remain long after he or she stops using drugs.

The drug induced changes in brain operation will likely cause the addict to acquire several behavioral consequences, including the obsession to abuse drugs despite the inauspicious consequences such as jail, deceases, which in turn are part of the defining property of addiction.

Research findings tell us that we need to provide a combination of pharmaceutical and psychological treatments that will help bolster the efficiency of the frontal cortex and hence the individual's ability to stop their urge to use drugs.
