Who is the author?

I would like to know the author of “Drug Addiction Causes” and “Effects of addiction.”

It’s a collaborative effort.

All the pages of this site are a collaborative effort between our staff and others who have helped pull the most current information we can find. Our goal is to help those struggling with substance use disorder to find the resources they need to move past their addiction.

Drug addiction causes many emotional and societal problems and the effects are felt everywhere.

Drug addiction causes the pathways inside the brain to be altered. Drugs bring on physical changes in the nerve cells.

These cells (neurons) communicate with each other releasing neurotransmitters into the gaps or synapses between the nerve cells. This makes some drugs more addictive than others.

There are several other factors that contribute to drug addiction. We’ll go into greater detail on another page, but for now the major factors are one’s genetic makeup, personality and peer pressure.
