Before coming to the treatment for drug addiction, it is all the more important to understand what drug addiction is, why it is dangerous and what the possible ways of fighting with the problem are. Drug addiction is a condition where a person becomes dependent on a specific drug for a very prolonged period of time. Such high is the dependency that he needs the drug to function normally even knowing the negative consequences of the drug on his body.

There are people who might start taking a medicine without any need for it. They just take it for the sake of trying it once since their friends take it. Slowly but steadily, this turns into dependency and eventually addiction.

Some of the symptoms which could tell that a person has developed drug dependence or has drug abuse are decreased efficiency and reduced performance level, turn violent, being unable to stop drug intake even after repeated attempts, reduced interests in pursuing hobbies, increased intake of drugs. Blood and urine tests are performed to know the intake of the specified drug and its time of intake.

Those children who have seen their parents consuming the drugs are more prone to drug abuse. Sometimes easy access to the drugs also becomes the reason.
