How does a drug affect a person’s brain?

Drugs target the “reward circuit” in the brain, thereby inducing feelings of euphoria in the user. This is created with the help of the neurotransmitter dopamine. Dopamine is naturally produced in the brain when a regular activity is performed providing pleasure to the individual. A reward system that is healthy will motivate an individual to carry out actions that are essential to survival like eating or socializing. When a pleasurable behavior is repeated, there is a dopamine surge in the brain which reinforces this activity which might be healthy or unhealthy. In the case of drugs, it becomes an unhealthy reinforcement.

Because of the malleable nature of the brain, any changes that might have been caused by the addictive drug or substance can be restored. On our website, you will find various tips and guidelines that will prove helpful towards treating a particular addiction. We list the various symptoms associated with the abuse of different addictive substances and present the effects that the drugs have on the human body in order to show how harmful these substances are to our health and well being.
