Addiction and Brain

The brain controls our body’s basic functions that permit us to understand and respond to everything we experience and shapes our thoughts, emotions, and behavior. Different parts of the brain are responsible for coordinating and performing specific functions. Medicines can change important brain parts that are necessary for life-sustaining activities and can drive the compulsive drug abuse that marks addiction. People who suffer from habit often have one or more additional medical issues, which may include lung or cardiovascular disease, cancer, stroke and mental disorders. Few drugs of abuse, such as inhalants, are toxic to nerve cells and may abolish them either in the brain or the peripheral nervous system (PNS).
