Drug addiction is now understood to be a chronic relapsing disease. Research conduced by the National Institute of Drug Abuse shows that all drugs that are abused have a long-lasting and profound impact on the brain. The brain of addicts “have been modified by the drug in such a way that absence of the drug makes a signal to their brain that is equivalent to the signal of when you are starving,” says Dr. Nora Vakow, Director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse
