Drug addiction or dependency refers to an inability to function normally without a drug due to repeated use. This can occur with both prescription and illicit drugs and withdrawal symptoms range from mild to severe.
People with a drug dependency often experience an inability to quit drugs despite their best efforts, and this can be dangerous for their health. Addiction to drugs such as heroin, cocaine or meth can affect everything from your mood and self-esteem, to your day-to-day life and family and social relationships.
