Addiction & Behavioral studies

Consumption of a substance in a manner (or) amount which is very harmful to the user and its surrounding is termed as substance abuse. For many teens, illicit use of central stimulants such as khat, methamphetamine and dopamine become part of the landscape of their teenage years. Effect of substance abuse in adolescence is a very risky proposition. Substance Use Disorders occur when a person has a dependence on alcohol and or drugs that is accompanied by intense and sometimes uncontrollable cravings and compulsive behaviors to obtain the substance. Vulnerability to develop addiction also dependents on genetic factors. They are believed to contribute 40% to 60% to the risk for alcoholism, research on the genetics of alochol dependency suggests that the tendency to become alcoholic is inherited via presumed genetic mutations. The altered gene functions due to mutation result in altered brain proteins
