Lots of folks get high and don’t seem to have a problem with it. There are some people that do have problems with drugs and alcohol. They use too much over too long a period. The bottom line is that the substance has taken over the person’s ability to control themselves and their substance use. Importantly, when a person abuses drugs or alcohol to the point that there are disruptions in major life areas, that is when an addiction has taken hold.

Currently, we refer to those folks as having a Substance Use Disorder. There are many different Substance Use Disorders, such as Alcohol Use Disorder, Opiate Use Disorder, Tobacco Use Disorder, Amphetamine Use Disorder, and others.
