What Is Drug Addiction?
Addiction is a chronic, often relapsing brain disease that causes compulsive drug seeking and use, despite harmful consequences to the addicted individual and to those around him or her. Although the initial decision to take drugs is voluntary for most people, the brain changes that occur over time challenge an addicted person’s self-control and hamper his or her ability to resist intense impulses to take drugs or alcohol.
Many people do not understand why or how other people become addicted to drugs. It is often mistakenly assumed that drug abusers lack moral principles or willpower and that they could stop using drugs simply by choosing to change their behavior. In this episode of The VAdio Show we get the real story of addiction from two men who actually lived it and made it through; Byron Joyce and Johnny Mayo. There is no testimony without a test and these men have passed and graduated from the school of hard knocks to a much more full filled and purpose driven life. Only to motivate others to do the same.
