What is the difference between drug use and the abuse of a drug?

Use and Abuse

by: Ned Wicker

Drug use is using a drug as recommended or prescribed for the person taking it.

Any time a drug is used for anything other than its intended purpose, that’s drug abuse. That would include misusing prescription medications, getting high on illegal street drugs, or drinking too much alcohol.

Many people try to fool themselves that they’re not abusing drugs and alcohol when they really are. That’s often the beginning of denial and can lead to drug dependence and/or addiction.
